O2 ABC Glasgow, Glasgow Details
Television were one of the most innovative bands to emerge from New York’s underground scene of the mid-1970s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary, that laid the groundwork for many of the guitar-based post-punk pop groups of the late 1970s and 1980s.
Nearly 14 years after their break up, Television reformed in late 1991, recording a new, self-titled album for Capitol Records. The reunited band began its comeback with a performance at Glastonbury in 1992, releasing Television a couple of months later. In 2007 Lloyd left the band and they were joined by Jimmy Rip who had played with Tom since 1981 on all his tours and recordings.
This new line-up has since performed in the USA, throughout Europe including the UK and Ireland, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand and China.
