Ricky Warwick, frontman of Thin Lizzy, posted on his facebook: "My mates in the very fine Trucker Diablo will be special guest support for the Belfast Thin Lizzy show on December 12th." As some of you will know Ricky also kindly made a guest appearance on the track Juggernaut on our debut album.
Trucker frontman Tom Harte commented "The last 12 months have seen us play with some amazing bands, Black Stone Cherry, Ginger Wildheart, Terrorvision, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys and now to be opening for the legendary Thin Lizzy is just incredible!"
November sees the band go into the studio to record album number 2, to be released on the Ripple Music label in early 2013 but there are still some live commitments left in 2012, next up is a slot with Swedish chart topping rockers, Bonafide, in The Diamond Rock Club, followed by an appearance at the Hard Rock Hell Festival, playing with the likes of
Buckcherry, Ugly Kid Joe and Sebastian Bach and then of course Thin Lizzy! The year ends with some local headline gigs in Derry and Strabane in mid December.
Big Truck keeps on rollin'.......thank you all for your support this year........
