Marc Bolan is now considered the absolute innovator of the 1970s glam-rock scene and the very first superstar of the 1970s. From 1970 to 1976 he had written 15 Top 20 hits including I Love To Boogie, 20th Century Boy, Ride A White Swan, Metal Guru, Jeepster, Get It On, Hot Love, and Children of the Revolution, and between 1968 and 1974 had notched up 9 top 20 albums with titles such as Electric Warrior and The Slider.
On 16 September 1977, at the age of 29, Marc’s life was cut short due to a fatal car accident. Now that over 40 years have passed by, T.Rextasy continues to celebrate Marc’s legacy by recreating that special authentic sound and the Bolanic imagery that Marc possessed, by playing all those iconic hits totally live and with the energy and passion that fans of any generation will enjoy.
T.Rextasy have played various and prestigious gigs throughout their 25 years of gigging around the world, such as performing at the Billy Elliot film launch premiere party in London’s West End, appearing on BBC1’s Battle of the Fantasy Bands and claiming the title of Best Live Tribute Band in the UK, and playing BBC’s Proms Night in Hyde Park in front of a crowd of 40,000.
June Bolan (Marc’s wife), after seeing Danielz and the band perform at Wembley Arena, commented “If there was anyone to follow in Marc’s shoes, I’d like it to be you!”
T.Rextasy are 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 is consistently described by many as ‘legendary’ and ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.
It’s been said that if you want to know exactly what a Marc Bolan rock ’n’ roll concert felt like in the 1970s, this gig is for you!
