We present an investigation to ascertain the role of the hybrid Tamm-surface plasmonic-photonic mode of optical states in light transmission of opal-like metal-dielectric photonic crystals. The mode of optical states exhibits interesting features in the control of light. Transmission spectra of one-dimensional plasmonic-photonic crystal have a maximum inside photonic bandgap due to excitation of Tamm plasmon in both polarizations. Three-dimensional opal-like plasmonic-photonic crystals have not transmission peak in the bandgap due to unconventional Tamm state. Modeling different versions of plasmonic-photonic crystal, we define the conditions of existence of a polarization-sensitive photonic bandgap transmission peak in the opal-like plasmonic-photonic crystal. Additionally, we also study the condition of efficient excitation of the hybrid plasmonic-photonic mode in such structures.
