It has recently been announced that the quintessential English rock band The Dogs D’amour are set to reunite on stage to play two live dates at the Borderline in London on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2013 – Both these shows sold out almost immediately. An additional show at the Wolverhampton Slade Rooms - Little Civic has also been announced for March 23rd.
In the late ‘80s they were regarded as one of the coolest underground rock bands with their bluesy, heartfelt sing-along anthems and ramshackle style.
With something exceptional to the norm they did not go unnoticed and appeared on Top of The Pops and MTV, graced the covers of Kerrang, RAW, and Sounds.
They also toured successfully worldwide several times and created a cult like following in UK, Japan and Europe.
After the band went their separate ways in the early nineties they briefly got together in 2000 to record "Happy Ever After" then in 2002 opened for Alice Cooper all over Europe and UK.
Since then all members have kept their music alive through their own various guises.
Frontman Tyla has continued to record many solo albums and tour as a solo artist. He is also a published writer and painter, and has developed a dedicated following. Bassist Steve formed Slyder, a funk blues band and is now a sought after luthier and has opened a successful guitar shop. Guitarist Jo is a frequently hired session musician, painter and sculptor. Drummer Bam toured USA, UK and Japan with his band Bubble and has recently launched his hand forged silver jewellery collection.
Over the years fans have campaigned tirelessly for a reunion of sorts and many had given up all hope of ever seeing them back together.
However news that a dear friend of the band was in need of urgent medical treatment has inspired these four kind hearts to reunite and raise funds through their music.
So now for the first time the ultimate classic line up of Tyla, Steve, Jo and Bam are back! They will be performing classics such as ‘How Come It Never Rains’, 'Satellite Kid' and ‘I Don’t Want You To Go’ as well treating fans to some exquisite new material. www.thedogsdamour.com
