T. Rex

T. Rex was a British band formed in 1967 and was initially an acoustic duo until they gained commercial success from experimenting with glam rock and a full band. In the early to mid-1970s, the band reached huge success with 14 Top 20 UK glam rock hits: “Jeepster“, “Get It On”, “Ride a White Swan”, “Solid Gold Easy Action”, “Children of the Revolution”, “Hot Love”, “Telegram Sam”, “20th Century Boy”, “Debora”, “Teenage Dream”, “I Love To Boogie” and “Metal Guru”.

During this period the band also released six UK Top 30 albums, including Electric Warrior, which hit the top of the album charts. The band stopped recording and performing when Marc Bolan was killed in a car crash in 1977.

T. Rex performed at the Globe on November 4 1971.
