Reformed rock band Thin Lizzy played their last gig under their iconic name at the Olympia Theatre last night.

Earlier this year, the line-up, which includes original guitarist Scott Gorham, decided against releasing a new album or going on tour again because it was a "touchy subject" for some people.

"Phil Lynott would have gone bananas over this. It's like the Jimi Hendrix Experience without Jimi Hendrix," he said.
