Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era. So on Saturday 30 October, the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to the famous glam rock band are going to perform at Arlington Arts Centre. T.Rextasy are ready to ‘truck on’ with this performance.
With Bolan’s special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs, the band had a string of huge hits throughout the 1970s, including Love to Boogie, Telegram Sam, Jeepster and 20th Century Boy.
T.Rextasy have been performing around the world for over 25 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 show is for.
