It has now been confirmed by the organizers of the Wildside Festival and TIGERTAILZ themselves that bassist Pepsi Tate — who was recently diagnosed with a severe stomach condition — will definitely play with the band at the inaugural Wildside Festival, set to take place tomorrow (Saturday, Nov. 18) at the Marcus Garvey Ballroom in Nottingham, England. Doors will open at 4:00 p.m. with a few tickets still available on the day. The full lineup is as follows:
RED STAR REBELS
NEW GENERATION SUPERSTARS
The Wildside Festival is a new venture from the Wildside Club — a monthly sleaze-glam club night held in Nottingham that has become the home of glam in the U.K. at present. Organizer, promoter and DJ Al White explains: "We've been running the Wildside nights for over three years now, and it's been a resounding success right from the start. The reason why glam rock fans have taken to us so passionately is probably due to the fact that we don't deviate from what we set out to do — and thats put on a full on sleaze-glam night! No deviations into other genres here! We've had everyone from L.A. GUNS to ROADSTAR play the Wildside club, and people have travelled from all over the country — even other countries as far as Sweden and Spain! We're at a point where we now feel the time is right to venture into putting on something spectacular and special. So what we have here is the two headliners VAIN and TIGERTAILZ (featuring Kim Hooker, Pepsi Tate, and Jay Pepper),undisputed leaders of the genre who've both got themselves back together and relased new albums that are fresh, relevant and in line with their classic albums — receiving universal critical acclaim across the board. And we've decided to team them up with the very best of the new and current sleaze rock bands the U.K. has to offer at present! Wildside is always looking forward to the future, rather than the past."
