THE TROGGS' Canterbury gig is due to go ahead despite the death of the band's former frontman Reg Presley.

The 'Wild Thing' singers will perform a tribute show to Presley tomorrow, who died aged 71 on Monday.

Presley retired from the band a year ago after becoming ill at a concert in Germany and being diagnosed with lung cancer.

The Troggs, formed of founding member and guitarist Chris Britton and bassist Peter Lucas, will perform with singer Chris Allen at the Gulbenkian Theatre tomorrow at 7.30pm.

The band are famous for their 1966 hit 'Wild Thing' but they have also released other UK hits including 'With A Girl Like You', 'I Can't Control Myself' and 'Love Is All Around', later covered by Wet Wet Wet.
