Glass Tiger to open for Roxette in Canada

NEW YORK – Glass Tiger, a Canadian pop-rock group signed to EMI and best known for their 1986 hit “Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone” (which reached #1 in Canada and #2 on the Billboard chart here in the U.S.) will open for Roxette at all seven concerts in Canada when the tour comes to North America at the end of August.  

Part of the success of that single can be attributed to the fact that Bryan Adams, who was riding high at the time from the success of his album, Reckless, contributed a cameo vocal, and that helped the record get airplay on the radio. You can hear Bryan’s “adlibs” towards the end of the song (“For heaven’s sake” and “My heart would break”).
