Thin Lizzy announce Damon Johnson to fill in for upcoming US tour

Thin Lizzy have recruited guitarist Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Brother Cane) to replace Richard Fortus on their forthcoming US tour with Judas Priest. Fortus will be on the road with Guns n Roses for the remainder of the year.

Upon his appointment with Thin Lizzy, Damon says, “The music of Thin Lizzy is the absolute biggest influence on my entire career; as a guitarist, songwriter, singer and performer I’ve been performing Lizzy songs since I started playing in bars in Alabama in 1987. To be even a small footnote on
the list of great guitarists that have been in the band over the years is one of the highest accolades of my life. I am honored and beyond excited!!”
