What a tragedy - it's the farewell reunion decimation tour for Tragedy - A Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees

Posted: 22nd October 2010

A couple of years ago we reported on the tribute-band, Tragedy - A Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees touring in support of The Wildhearts. Having released their debut album (what a title) "We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong", the band impressed pretty much everyone who saw them in that supporting role during that very same tour. Now it's time to don the silver-Spandex pants and fire up the Gibbs back-catalogue - Tragedy is back!

The US-band will headline a tour in January, subtitled "Decimation in the UK" and a follow-on from their continuing Farewell Reunion World Tour. First stop is Bristol on 12th January, followed by Swansea, Birmingham and many more including London's Islington Academy (20th) until finishing in Carlisle on 22nd. Tickets are on sale now, priced at £7/£8 depending on location.

We gave them a 5-star review back in 2008 for their performance in Wolves in 2008 - the band parody the 70's just as much as they pay homage to the Bee Gees, mixing "How Deep Is Your Love", "Staying Alive" and "Tragedy" with glam-metal and rock n roll. Sounds ridiculous? Go and see them and find out.
