Glass Tiger with special guests The Parachute Club return to Massey Hall in spring 2022.
And so it continues...the story of one of Canada’s most enduring and iconic bands, Glass Tiger, roars on. Originally known as Tokyo, the band formed in Newmarket, Ontario in 1981 and spent several years cutting their teeth in the bar scene of the day. With rapidly growing popularity, it didn’t take long for all the major record labels to come courting, culminating in their signing of a world-wide recording deal with Capitol Records in 1985.
Changing their name to Glass Tiger, their debut album, The Thin Red Line quickly became an unstoppable force, rocketing up the charts to become the fastest selling debut in Canadian history, spawning no less than five hit singles. Leading the charge, was the now-and-forever iconic, "Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)," a song that is etched into the very fabric of popular music’s history.
Grammy nominated and five-time award winners of both The JUNOs and Canadian Classic, the band has shared stages and recording performances with some of the world’s leading acts including; Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Bryan Adams, Journey, Julian Lennon, and Cheap Trick (to name a few).
For the past 40 years, Lorraine Segato has powered up an impressive artistic career that has produced some edgy and excellent cultural work. Segato's extensive experience as a respected, Songwriter, Musician, Filmmaker, Event Producer, Artistic Director, Speechwriter, and Social Justice Activist makes her one of Canada's respected cultural commentators and iconic recording artists.
As the co-founder and lead singer of The Parachute Club, one of the most critically lauded and commercially successful groups of the eighties, Segato enjoyed an impressive career in the music industry before turning her attention to a large array of diverse creative endeavours. Even before her chart topping hits with The Parachute Club, Segato had already staked a claim as one of the few female artists of the time able to succeed on her own terms.
