The new millenium saw some heavy touring by Thin Lizzy, with Mendoza also taking some time out to tour and record with Ted Nugent for his ‘Full Bluntal Nugity’ and ‘Craveman’ albums, whilst his appearance on David Coverdale’s ‘Into The Light’ album eventually saw him joining Whitesnake for huge arena tours and festival dates, one of which was released as the ‘Live… In The Still Of The Night’ concert DVD. During down time from Whitesnake he was also a member of the supergroup Soul Sirkus, recording an album and touring the US and UK alongside Journey members Neal Schon, Deen Castronovo and Jeff Scott Soto. Another spell with Thin Lizzy was punctuated by working with ex-Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan and George Lynch’s reformed Lynch Mob, the talented bassist somehow finding time to also make his first solo album ‘Live For Tomorrow’ in 2007.

Having released more records with the likes of Derek Sherinian, Dolores O’Riordan, Lynch Mob, ex-Judas Priest singer Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, and his own project, Casa Mendoza, 2012 sees Marco Mendoza as an indispensible member of the most successful Thin Lizzy line-up since their reformation, as well as touring his own material and performing clinics whenever possible. This is his first solo tour of the UK, so take this opportunity to see this charismatic musician up-close and personal.
