Terrorvision will host three special shows this November celebrating 30 years, including a hometown gig at St. Georges in Bradford on Friday 3rd. These TV30 By Request shows will feature all 13 of the band’s Top 40 hits.
“It’s just like they’ve been preserved in the liquid of their 1993 debut album Formaldehyde,” the band said. “Bradford’s finest Terrorvision strike out three special gigs in November 2023 to celebrate 30 years of raucous, rowdy, rip-snorting rock ‘n’ roll.
“As potent a live force as ever, and with a set list of ’90s bangers to die for, the band wanted to celebrate this magnificent milestone in the only way they know how! Cue three very loud, very bouncy parties!
“Whales, Dolphins, Ooh-Wops, and Tequilas will be toasted! Fourteen chart-bothering singles and the usual live faves, along with a handful of fan-voted deep cuts, will be on a very tasty menu of Rock!
“How to KEEP friends and influence people, indeed! See y’all down the front!”
Tickets are available from here.
Terrorvision formed in 1988 with the aim to be the biggest band from Bradford (beginning with ‘T’). Five hit albums and 13 Top 40 singles (peaking at No.2!) between 1993 and 2001 saw them catapulted from pub gigs in Yorkshire to arenas and major festival stages across Europe.
Whether they were doo-wopping their way to Oblivion, hailing the advice of whales and dolphins in Perseverance, or celebrating the mind-altering properties of a certain strain of cactus juice, Terrorvision made friends and influenced fans across the world and confirmed themselves as the ‘go-to’ rock band for festival fun and games throughout the ’90s.
2001 saw an end to the ride. Frazzled and brain-fried after ten straight years on the road, the band went their separate ways to try out other things in life and in music.
Marks’ Blunderbuss delivered the Metal, Leigh’s Malibu Stacey some snotty glam-tinged punk and Tony’s Laika Dog alt-rock with a side order of indie.
A handful of gigs and festival appearances from 2005-2010, which proved, like riding a bicycle, that being back on a stage and rocking the shit out of it came naturally, led to the band writing and releasing their first album for ten years, Super Delux. The album delighted their hardcore fan base with a barrage of hooks, and everything turned up to 11.
Touring Super Delux throughout 2012 left the band somewhat fried and mangled all over again, so everyone split for calmer waters and new challenges.
An out-of-the-blue invitation from Thunder to guest on their 2016 arena shows was the impetus the band needed to get back in a room together, and since then, Terrorvision have been out to play a handful of gigs each year to increasingly larger crowds in increasingly bigger venues, the likes of which they haven’t played since the 1990s.
