The Classic Rock Tribute Show
17 September 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£10
A classic show for a classic venue, Blackpool’s Winter Gardens Arena hosts a tribute to three of the world’s biggest rock ‘n’ roll bands; Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and AC/DC. Featuring the UK’s finest Led Zeppelin tribute act ‘Letz Zep’ plus the Anglo-Spanish tribute ‘Deeper Purple’ with local tribute band ‘AC/BC’ in support. With a 2 am bar with specialist rock DJ to rock the night away in this Grade 2 listed entertainment complex.
Guaranteed to take you back to the classic 1970s with memories of a ‘Child in Time’ where “The Song Remains The Same’, so if you like your music loud and proud it’s time to ‘Let There Be Rock’ at the Classic Rock Tribute Show.
Letz Zep are the official number one tribute to Led Zeppelin and Baby They Ain’t Foolin’. Awarded the status of both ‘The Most Popular’ and ‘The Most Highly Rated’ tribute to Led Zeppelin in the UK today by Ticketmaster customers. 45 years ago legendary Led Zeppelin released what many people believe to be their best work, their untitled fourth album. This seminal album changed the face of rock music
forever, setting the bar ever higher. Led Zeppelin IV featured eight classic rock songs including ‘Black Dog’, ‘Rock and Roll’ and the song most people recognise them by ‘Stairway to Heaven’.
Letz Zep are the best known and most successful tribute to Led Zeppelin. Even legendary Zep frontman Robert Plant commented it was like watching himself onstage, after he attended one of their shows, his comment in Q Magazine in an interview was “I walked in, I
saw me”. An accolade of the highest order!
Deeper Purple heavily feature the classic mark II line up, faithfully reproducing the excellent ‘Made in Japan’ album as well as other songs from that line up in addition to a wide selection of material from the equally classic mark III line up.
An illustrious series of live shows has seen Deeper Purple play across the UK extensively for almost ten years in addition to a number of events in Spain, including two concerts for the Harley Davidson Owners Group (HOG) rally in Jerez, a rock festival in Mijas Auditorium and even the castle in Puerto Duquesa!
Not only has the band built up a loyal following but also garnered the praise of original Deep Purple bassist Nic Simper, who they were privileged to have guest with them in November 2008.
With a blistering set consisting of all the classics and the best reproduction of the Purple live sound you’re ever likely to hear, Deeper Purple will deliver the ultimate rock experience!
Based in Blackpool this established local AC/DC tribute band have travelled the length of the country delivering the trademark heads down, no nonsense rock ‘n’ roll of both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson versions of Australia’s greatest musical export. They will open the show for what promises to be an evening of superb classic rock.
