Tony Hawk, legendary skater and star of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series of games, jumped on stage at a performance on Saturday to surprise his fans. The 900 is a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater cover band, and are honored to call themselves ‘the UK’s first and only’. They are currently touring the UK playing songs from the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 until American wasteland. While fans of the game regularly come to The 900’s shows, Tony Hawk was one guest the fans didn’t know was coming.
The 900 played Saturday night at Signature Bew in East London, a pub and music venue in Haggerston. Signature Brew regularly hosts local British bands such as The 900, who offer pints and popular music. While the Signature Brew is used to giving its customers a good time, only The 900 knew that Tony Hawk would show up to sing along with the band that plays all of its greatest hits.
According to Video Games ChronicleTony Hawk released two songs from the Tony Hawk’s pro skater games with the 900 on the podium. Hawk was in London for an event – An Evening With Tony Hawk at the London Palladium Arena. After that, he stopped by the Signature Brew to surprise his fans and play with The 900. When his set was complete, Hawk thanked fans for respecting the songs in his games and contributing to the success of the pro skater franchisee. The subway reported that The 900 had planned this performance for weeks but kept it quiet from their fans who were shocked to see Tony Hawk take the stage.
Fans Were Shocked By Tony Hawk On Stage With The 900 Cover Band
While venues are normally aware of special performances and planned arrangements, Signature Brew was as shocked as the fans, tweeting that they weren’t expecting the real Tony Hawk to show up when they booked a Pro Skater cover band. Hawk was genuinely grateful to see his fans enjoy the music and later played Goldfinger’s Superman with the rest of the band.
While Hawk is on tour, he has provided details about the canceled remake of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4, claiming that Activision Blizzard’s decision to absorb Vicarious Visions last year was the reason for its demise. Vicarious Visions, who developed the remakes for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, the project was unable to continue when Activision Blizzard took over, and it was never picked up by another developer. Hawk speculates that Activision couldn’t find anyone they liked to take over the project, so it died with the merger. Despite this, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fans will likely see new projects in the future and be able to enjoy great cover band music while waiting for updates.
