March 13, 2013: Gold Coast Coolangatta Hotel- Coolangatta, Australia

The final Thin Lizzy show will be on March 16 in Mackay, Queensland with Kiss and Motley Crue.

After the tour Gorham will launch his new band Black Star Riders with Darren Wharton and Jimmy Degrasso.

Gorham has not discounted a return to Thin Lizzy sometime in the future. “We are taking a break from Thin Lizzy,” he told Noise11. “The Black Star Riders is not just a side-project. It is a well and true and proper band. We’ll still go out as Thin Lizzy. There are still certain big festivals that we will do. Thin Lizzy is still on the horizon, we will still go out and do that but in the meantime we have Black Star Riders that we are going to concentrate on also”.
