T.Rex tribute gig

TOP tribute act T.Rextasy are set to return to Skegness this Friday (June 8).

Described by original T.Rex drummer Bill Legend as “the closest you’re ever going to get to the real thing” the show is likely to prove very popular.

“On September 8, 1972 a record that would inspire future generations was released by one of the most flamboyant and charismatic bands of the original glam rock era,” said a spokesperson.

“Marc Bolan and T.Rex stormed the charts with one of his most memorable and distinctive songs of that decade - ‘Children of the Revolution’.

“Forty years on the song has become iconic and legendary, along with Bolan’s other best selling anthems of that year that included, ‘Metal Guru’, ‘Solid Gold Easy Action’ and ‘Telegram Sam’

“T.Rextasy have now been performing around the world for 20 years, a career that ironically outlives Marc’s very own T.Rex.

“The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management. The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

“Truly a rock ‘n’ roll concert for all ages - if you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this is the show for you,” they added.

The concert is set to take place on Friday (June 8) from 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £19.50 (£17.50) and £11 for children.
