Hull City Hall, December 2nd - Cancelled!
26th November 2010

It is with regret that the Tygers announce that due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the intended show at Hull City Hall on Thursday 2nd December has been cancelled.

Please accept our sincere apologies to those who had intended coming to see our performance, if only in the capacity as support to MoBR. We can only hope that we get the opportunity to play in the Humberside area in the not too distant future.

Those who have already purchased tickets are entitled to a full refund and are asked to contact the venue to arrange.

Sorry once again.


Comment From Mick Box (Uriah Heep)
12th October 2010

As reported below (5th Oct), Mick came down to see the band at the Underworld in London and posted the following on his personal MySpace site:-

'On Friday night I went to Camden Town to see the “Tygers of Pang Tang” play at the venue called The Underworld. Brian West our Bass, Keyboard and Stage Manager is the Bass Player, so I thought I would check them out. I am very glad I made the effort, as they were great. It was a most enjoyable night, and I came away well impressed. They are all excellent players, and the vocalist was spot on, and they connected with the audience very well. Check them out on their website http://tygersofpantang.com/ they rocked the Underworld big time, and it was professional, slick, straight ahead, and most definitely in your face. I loved it!' Mick Box (Uriah Heep) 2010

We would like to thank Mick for not only taking the time to come down and check out the Tygers but also for his kind words.

Special Show Gateshead with ODS 9th October
4th October 2010
Just a quick Blog to remind everyone of the upcoming show at the Lancastrian Suite in Gateshead on Saturday 9th October. It will be a great show on home ground and who better to play with than ODS.

We are really looking forward to meeting up with the guys again, it will have been nearly 30 years since Robb shared the stage with Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson. That was when the Tygers supported Saxon on the Wheels of Steel Tour and a Tour we still receive a lot of comments about. Although line ups have changed this will still be a night of great British Rock by two of the bands who were at the forefront of the NWOBHM movement in 1980.

Tickets are still available or you can pay on the night. Please contact the lancastrian suite for more details on info@thelancastriansuite.com

See you all there

The Diamond Rock Club - Ballymena, Northern Ireland
24th May 2010
The band would like to thank everyone who came to the show on Saturday Night, it was a fantastic atmosphere & reception from you guys and very welcome. Considering the expenses most of you would have incurred last week with some high profile shows going on in Belfast with Matallica and Kiss, your support was greatly appreciated. We understand in these economic hard times money is not freely flowing so it makes it all that more appreciated.

We would also like to make a special mention for Derwin, Fiona, Nigel and everyone associated with the Diamond Rock Club for the courtesy and first class hospitality shown to us. You thought of everything.

For those who do not know the Diamond Rock Club and live in Northern Ireland, check them out and get involved with your support. They are real fans of Rock & Metal and have live music most weekends. The club has a fantastic atmosphere, every one knows each other and big plans to get more touring bands to play as well as Northern Irelands finest.

The venue is linked in our top friends on the offical Tygers of Pan Tang myspace site.

Thanks Again

Birmingham Show Cancelled
10th May 2010
Unfortunately the Birmingham Asylum show has been pulled by the promoter. This was due to a number of issues and contractual concerns.

Rush Fest update
9th May 2010
Unfortunately the promoter is still having issues with the local council to gain the necessary licence for the event to go ahead. Can I suggest if you planned on attending or live within the constituancy voice your displeasure directly to the council. Its promoters such as Adrian who is trying to keep music live and he deserves our support. Please see below the statement issued:-

I thought I would drop you a line to let you know that we are experiencing serious issues with the council. On Tuesday this week we set up a sound check on the pitch to do a noise assessment. It raised a serious issue in that the levels were far to high for the regulations. It has meant that we have had to postpone this event yet again???

The council however do want it to go ahead and we a relooking to hold it in the adjacent rec next to our ground. I have another noise assessment being done next week. There is a smaller event like this being held there by the council in 2 weeks time and therefore the precedence is already set.! It is very frustrating for all involved including us, as we have now spent £20k on a website, promotions etc. I have Ticketmaster ready to go, eagle radio, surrey add and also Rocketuk ready to press the button.

I am confident that we can actually hold this event and I will come back to you once I have confirmation from the council that they are happy to proceed.

Warmest regards

York shows info
9th May 2010
For this show you will be able to pay on the door on the night. We are not sure of the ticket price and would suggest that you check out the venue website or make direct contact with the venue. After a fantastic reception at the Keep it True Festival in Germany and the band is really looking forward to playing more live shows. If you are considering attending get down there without fail and have a great night of NWOBHM. Just a second note, at present we have no concerns that Jacopo will not be able to get over from Italy.

Keep it True Festival 13
9th May 2010
We would like to Thank everybody who attended the festival for the incredible reception you gave the band last Saturday, we were blown away by the whole experience. Leading up to the Festival there were bands pulling out due to the Iceland Volcano but we were determined to play no matter what and any band who did not make it missed out on a very special two days. We will remember the festival for a very long time.

Festivals in Europe such as Keep it True, Heavy Metal Maniacs, Headbangers Open Air and hundreds of others are what keeps our music alive. These festivals are organised by true fans who spend thousands of hours of there time dedicated to the music they love. Our thanks go to every organisor as without you we would not get the chance to play our music.

If you get the chance, support your local festival and keep them all alive.

Thanks Again to Everybody

The Wildcat EP Sessions Update 3
12th April 2010
We are pleased to announce that all pre-orders of the EP have now been sent out. Dependant upon where you live in the world you should receive the EP at some point this week. We would like to sincerely apologies for the delay in getting this CD out to you, this was due to some issues we had and announced a while ago with the licence red tape. To compensate you for this delay we have added an extra disk for you in the package which will hopefully make amends. We are always keen that you guys are looked after and it was the least we could do as the delay was unforseen. Hope you like the EP and bonus disk.

Tour Date Changes

There has been some alterations to the May touring schedule. We are now playing the Rush Fest at Farnborough FC (Classic Rock Day) which has now changed again to 29th May (confirmed). You will notice that we have two shows on the 29th May which will be a first for the band. If you want to catch the band at Farnborough get there early as we will be playing early on the bill. We will then be loading up and travelling to Wales to play Party in the Pub for the Patriot Bike Club as the headlining act.

Sadly the NWOBHM Festival at The Robin 2, Bilston has had to be cancelled. Praying Mantis had to unfortunately pull out due to being booked for the Sweden Rock Festival. Also the event was taking place on the same day as the Download Festival and we received a lot of emails regarding this. We are not sure of the situation as regards to re-booking the event but will keep you posted as it was a Marseille booking. If you had tickets and you want an alternative to see the band then check us out at Birmingham or Cannock in May on the tour. We only planned to play 45 minutes at Bilston so you will get a full set list of songs at the other venues. Thanks for your continued support

The Tygers are delighted to announce that the recording & mixing of the forthcoming EP "The Wildcat sessions" is now complete and we are very pleased with the end result. In particular with the recorded sound achieved, it really does capture the early 80s NWoBHM spirit and feel we were looking for.

As a celebration of the 30th Year Anniversary since the original release we wanted to remind those fans who've not played the Wildcat album for some time just how good the songs were. The album was recognized as an underground classic entering the UK charts at number 15 and considered one of the leading debut releases of 1980.

The running order on the EP is:-
Euthanasia / Slave to Freedom / Suzie Smiled / Don't Touch Me There / Wildcatz
After mastering the disc will enter production mid-February. The first batch of copies will be ready for dispatch early March 2010.
