THEY play the venue annually but this year’s T. Rextasy gig is going to be a little bit special as it marks the 40th anniversary of Marc Bolan’s death.
It’s hard to believe that 40 years have now passed since Marc’s tragic fatal car accident and fans have mourned the loss of a truly individual, inspirational talent ever since.
Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era.
Bolan’s special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs including 20th Century Boy, Get in On and I Love to Boogie have insured that Marc Bolan and T.Rex have become one of the most memorable and enduring bands of the 1970s.
T.Rextasy are the only tribute band to have been authorised and endorsed by Marc Bolan’s catalogue management. The band are now officially recognised as the world’s No.1 group dedicated to the greatest glam rocker of them all.
The band has toured worldwide playing at venues such as the gigantic Ariake Coliseum in Japan and Wembley Arena in London. They also perform alongside artists such as Wizzard, Cockney Rebel, Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople) and Slade amongst others.
They have now been performing around the world for an incredible 25 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex.
The band also have the blessing and support from Marc’s own family and ex-T.Rex band members, including June Bolan (Marc’s wife), Gloria Jones (Marc’s girlfriend), Rolan Bolan (Marc’s son), Mickey Finn (T.Rex conga player), Tony Visconti (T.Rex producer) and others.
With their uncanny doppelganger lead singer and lead guitarist, Danielz, T.Rextasy perform a powerful and mesmerising presentation of Marc Bolan’s rock and pop anthems.
T.Rextasy are now regarded beyond the boundaries of ‘tribute’ and are respected in their own right.
This year T.Rextasy are celebrating Marc’s life and works with a very special commemorative tour. 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 show is for you!
T.Rextasy will play The Wharf on Saturday, July 29.
