TRIBE OF DAN
+ STRANGE BEHAVIOUR
+ special guests BLACK BLOCK
Just four reunion gigs in total, two of them in the UK, and one of those is here
In 1988 Tribe of Dan fronted by Dan Donovan first shot to light after playing a showcase gig, their second gig in fact, for Radio 1. The Radio One Evening Sessions show was then hosted by Mark Goodier who promptly offered the band a slot on his show and so this was the beginnings of a four year journey for Dan and his ever changing Tribe.
It wasn¹t long before Dan¹s outfit gathered a following fondly known as The Moosketeers. Kit bags and army boots, human pyramids and mosh pits became signature features at the live shows throughout Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.
In 1991 the music scene was ripe for grebo goth rock bands and Tribe of Dan were at their height. Tribe of Dan released an album titled Shook Up Shook Up which received glowing press coverage in all the national music papers, Sounds, NME, Melody Maker and Kerrang gave it their full rating with a 4K review. Radio One rock shows gave the album airtime Tommy Vance and then Alan Fluff Freeman both endorsed ToD and played them on their shows.
Since the demise of the original outfit Dan has focussed on solo projects and released albums with King Kool. Now 25 years later Dan has called on the Tribe to do a handful of reunion gigs. One in Netherlands, one in Belgium and two in the UK.
These gigs are one off only gigs and if you missed them first time round this will be your chance to see them again. Supporting the shows will be the band Strange Behaviour who made up one of the Tribe¹s line-ups back in the day.
