Marc Bolan 30th Anniversary Gig Planned

Marc Bolan's life and music is to be celebrated on the 30th anniversary of the T-Rex front man's death at a concert this September.

The concert at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire will feature a line-up including veteran producer Tony Visconti who worked with T-Rex for the majority of their recording career.

Artists confirmed to appear so far include Marc Almond, Shakin' Stevens, and John's Children vocalist Andy Ellison, who along with other vocalists will perform unique versions of classic glam T-Rex songs backed by renowned tribute act T-Rextasy.

Marc Bolan: The Celebration takes place on September 15, and proceeds raised will be split between Nordoff Robins Music Therapy and the PRS Members Fund.

September also sees the release of an anniversary edition 40-track T-Rex and Bolan compilation through Universal records, including Bolan's ten top ten hit singles.
