TYGERS OF PAN TANG--Support: MARKK 13

The Tygers of Pan Tang were an essential part of the movement that became known as New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). Signed to M.C.A records they recorded 4 albums in 3 years, toured the UK and Europe extensively, outsold ‘name’ bands in Japan and had an ‘almost’ hit single with their outstanding arrangement of The Clovers ‘Love Potion Number 9’. They weathered the mini storm of their first vocalist leaving after one album and replaced him with the towering figure of Jon Deverill. Against their record companies wishes they employed an additional guitarist, the mercurial John Sykes, who……well that’s another story. On the brink of following Def Leppard and Iron Maiden who had softened up the USA, the band imploded spectacularly when the Los Angeles based MCA refused to provide the support necessary to cross the pond and, without a doubt, cement their growing reputation stateside.
And that could well have been the end of the story had it not been for Robb Weir, who had founded the original Tygers and continued to ‘believe’. Recruiting a set of musicians who could not only perform the old tunes with the necessary reverence, but who could also carry the Tygers torch forward and make new music suitably fitting of the name Tygers of Pan Tang, he set about rebuilding their reputation.
And the results? Well, employing the vocal talents of a singer from Italy (Iacopo Jack Meille) who has been able to command the respect of Tygers fans old and new (and there are plenty of new ones) a rhythm section (Gav Gray and Craig Ellis bass and drums respectively) who are schooled in providing the necessary propulsion to drive the music from stage to audience and yet another guitarist of unnerving ability and an intuitive feel for the Tygers music (Micky Crystal) , the Tygers star has begun to rise again.
That reputation was cemented recently when they were awarded a gold album by their record company for sales and downloads of their most recent, self-titled, album released just over two years ago. In support of that album the band have played South America, North America, Japan and throughout Europe.
The Tygers have just finished recording their next album to be released worldwide in October 2019. They will then begin a two year world tour.

 

MARKK 13
100% VOL. ROCK'N'ROLL!

THE PAST IS BACK TO KIKK YOUR ASS !!!!

So dröhnt es über den Äther der amerikanischen Radiostation „Stickman Radio“.
Die wöchentlich ausgestrahlte Metal-Show „The Tour Bus“ bringt es genau auf den Punkt:

Der Hard Rock & Metal der 80er Jahre hat wieder Hochkonjunktur!

Auch hierzulande machen sich die Auswirkungen dieser Entwicklung bemerkbar.
Die Ruhrpott-Rocker MARKK 13 haben die Verstärker vorglühen lassen und
die Kehlen gut geölt.
Das Hallenlicht geht aus und vier Verrückte drücken das Pedal voll durch...
Geradeaus gespielter Good Time Rock´n Roll mit viel authentischem
80er Hard Rock Flair!
Kein kalkulierter Retro-Trip sondern schweißnasse T-Shirts, stickige Luft und
ein breites Grinsen im Gesicht... 

So geschehen bei MARKK 13-Shows im Vorprogramm von PAUL DI´ ANNO (UK),
JOE LYNN TURNER  (USA), KISSIN' DYNAMITE, THUNDER (UK), RICHIE KOTZEN (USA), THE POODLES (SWE), RHINO BUCKET (USA), BONFIRE, THE QUIREBOYS (UK) oder Y & T (USA).
