It’s time for a gig announcement and, yes, we’re pleased to announce : Tragedy : The All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond will be making their regular pilgrimage to Newcastle
This time, coming to a bar they were meant to play many years ago, but circumstances denied… boo… but, this time the venue, like the band, are back better than ever
May 22nd – live at Trillians Rock Bar
There are two types of people this show is for
Those who know and love Tragedy we’re sure will be pleased to see their heroes and idols in the flesh
Those who don’t – becasuse there are many people who are missing out on the sweet sweet loving Tragedy can offer.
Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and Metal, these fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when they seamlessly blended the two genres with their debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong – a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Guns N Roses.
Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows and having stormed across the USA, UK, Germany, Netherlands, France and Switzerland. Subsequent full length albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco Metal, The Solo Albums and The Joy of Sex have seen them spread their glittered wings to take on non Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams.In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You’re the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack. In 2017, Tragedy’s video for Stayin’ Alive broke the internet once again.
If you’re allergic to smiling be afraid… be very afraid. Tragedy sweats glitter and cums confetti!
After an exciting first round in which Kraken Waken and Blood Moon Bandits progressed, Heat 2 is this Wednesday, February 22nd, at Trillians.
A late decision was made on Thursday to make the launch night free entry and that offer will continue for the remainder of the heats, so, each night you’ll get to sample 4 or 5 local bands with no cover charge.
So, who have we got for you this time – in no particular order (as running order decided on the night) we will be welcoming…
Trendkill – thrash/groove from Redcar
Razorjack – 4 piece metal band influenced by the likes of Slipknot and FFDP
Dead By Dawn – Horrorbilly/rockabilly
I’ll Play the Villain – Metalcore, they were finalists last year but they’ve got a very tough opening round
At time of writing there’s just 4 bands confirmed, but a 5th may be added. We will communicate running order on the Facebook event on the evening after the draw takes place.
We hope to see you there for some amazing talent.
