   A sparse crowd gathers for the Thin Lizzy show. Those in the know put the poor showing down to a relatively mediocre lineup. The bands chosen did not appeal across the board. Just because Lizzy had chart success did not mean that their fans liked the mainstream AOL of Ms Tzuke or The QTips. Add insufficient advertising and a dull day to the mix, no wonder there was a disappointing audience turnout.
