Glass Tiger

A special livestream from the El Mocambo

The story of one of Canada’s most enduring and iconic bands, Glass Tiger, roars on. Originally known as, Tokyo, the band formed in Newmarket, Ontario, in 1981 and spent several years cutting their
 teeth in the bar scene of the day. With rapidly growing popularity it didn’t take long for all the major record labels to come courting, culminating in their signing a world-wide recording deal with, capitol records, in 1985.

Changing their name to Glass Tiger, their debut album,
the Thin Red Line quickly became an unstoppable force, rocketing up the charts to become the fastest selling debut in Canadian history.  Leading the charge, was the, now-and-forever, iconic, Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone), a song that is forever-etched into the very fabric popular music’s history.

5-time Juno Award winners, 5-time Canadian classic winners and Grammy nominated, Glass Tiger have shared stages and recording performances with some of the world’s leading acts including; Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Journey, Julian Lennon, Cheap Trick to name but a few.

In 2018, the band hit the road, touring extensively while promoting the release of their album, 31, which is essentially an album of celebration through the reimagining of the classic songs they are best known for.

Originally to be named, 30, in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of the Thin Red Line, life quickly turned to anguish when lead vocalist, Alan Frew, suffered a stroke in the summer of 2015, causing the band to shut down while Frew spent the next year in recovery. “If you lose your 30th to such a thing, said keyboardist, Sam Reid, you wait and hope for recovery, then when it happens, you simply celebrate life and what lies ahead… and for us that was 31, simple math!”

In 2019, Glass Tiger released their 5th studio album, 33. In fall 2020 they released a Christmas album, Songs For A Winter’s Night.

Now you can celebrate St. Valentine’s Day with a livestreamed Glass Tiger concert from Toronto’s El Mocambo.
