Darren Wharton’s DARE ready for Belfast

1237600_10151680709482843_1850159641_nThin Lizzy’s Darren Wharton is set for the Limelight stage in Belfast this Friday 16th May.

At the age of 17, Manchester born keyboard player Darren Wharton joined the legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy and recorded the famous “Chinatown” album with Philip Lynott, Scott Gorham, Snowy White and Brian Downey. After being featured on Chinatown, the young musician from Manchester found himself touring extensively throughout Europe, America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. After four great years of playing along side Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and White Snake’s John Sykes, the sad news was announced that mega rock band Thin Lizzy had decided to disband.

Darren returned to his home town Manchester where he began to write, sing and produce his own songs. After recruiting young guitarist, Vinny Burns, it wasn’t long before Darren’s new band DARE were getting noticed by the major labels in London and in 1987 Darren and DARE were signed by A&M records.

With a firm set of songs now behind them, DARE are preparing to bring their show to Belfast this Friday 16th May 2014. Support comes from Worldsend and CRASH. Tickets are still available priced £20 plus booking fee.
