With fans including Robert Plant, Fred Zeppelin are seen as one of the finest rock tribute acts currently playing, and you can hear why when they play at Lichfield Guildhall on Saturday 6 November.
Kerrang Magazine has listed Fred Zeppelin as one of the top ten live bands, so it is no surprise that their previous appearances at Lichfield Guildhall have always been so popular. During their years together, Robert Plant has seen the band three times, and Jon Bonham’s Son, Jason, has even played live with them at gigs, so they are as close to seeing Led Zeppelin live as you could get.
Their passion for the music of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham shows in the care and attention to detail they give the songs, which range from the pure adrenalin rush of Rock’n’ Roll, the blues of Dazed and Confused, or the acoustic wizardry of Stairway to Heaven.
A bombastic stage show mixes with dazzling virtuoso musicianship to give fans of rock music a night to remember. Do you remember petuli oil, cheesecloth, tie-dye T-shirts, desert boots, loons and tank tops. Do you still wear them?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, the chances are you must be the proud owner of at least one Led Zeppelin album. Let ‘THE FREDS’ take you back in time to those heady days of flower power, Kevin Keegan perms, flared jeans so wide it took two paces before they moved, and shirt collars long enough to tuck into your under-pants.
Let Fred Zeppelin re-create the atmosphere of that great era by playing all the classic tunes of one of the greatest rock band. Wrinkle Rock Lives!
