FORTY years after the iconic T-Rex anthem Get It On was released, tribute act T.Rexstasy hit the road to celebrate the track and the glam-rock band.

Get It On spent four weeks at number one in 1971, and the accompanying album Electric Warrior also hit the top position and spent six months in the Top 30. Written by Marc Bolan, the song has been name-checked by Noel Gallagher as an influence on the Oasis hit Cigarettes and Alcohol.

T-Rexstasy claim to be the only tribute band endorsed by Bolan’s family, estate and management.

They will also perform T-Rex’s other major hits such as Ride a White Swan, Jeepster, Hot Love and 20th Century Boy.

Tickets for T.Rextasy’s Get it On Tour concert at the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm on Saturday (7.30pm) are priced at £15 and are available from 01387 381196.
