"Although we are awaiting some more confirmed dates, we wanted to let you all know as soon as possible about the upcoming UK tour. This will be a three band bill with the Tygers Of Pan Tang as headliners and the fantastic Steve Grimmett of GRIM REAPER/ONSLAUGHT as Special Guest. The main tour support will be CRIMES OF PASSION, who are one of the best new UK Rock bands around so it promises to be a great night of music. Tickets will be very reasonably priced at all venues as we wanted to make this tour great value for money especially due to the economic climate in the UK at the moment. Please check out the individual venues for further details which are listed on MySpace and the website www.tygersofpantang.com.

We hope to see you all on this tour so we could thank you for your support of the Tygers during 2008. The sales of Animal Instinct have passed our own expectations and with the help of Geoff Bartons quote and 8/10 review in Classic Rock magazine we have a lot of older fans returning. Please spread the word and bring along your friends, and be part of the Tygers 2008.

Tygers"
