FEAST FOR ZEPPELIN FANS
WIDELY acclaimed as the best Led Zeppelin band on the planet, No Quarter, The Led Zeppelin Experience is pounding its way from Seattle in the US to the Twin Towns for a show in November. Rolling Stone magazine credited the band for keeping the Zeppelin spirit alive in a 2012 collector's edition of Led Zeppelin. The band has toured the world for more than 15 years, returning the characters of John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant to the stage in their absolute prime.
Dennis D'Amico, Executive Producer for Paul McCartney, went to see the band play live and says he found himself pleasantly surprised at what he discovered.
"They were terrific, note for note, and the thing that impressed me the most was having a singer that could sing like Robert Plant.
"I've seen legacy bands in the past, especially Led Zeppelin bands, and always the singer is the critical centrepiece, the cornerstone, and usually that's where the bands fail to really hit the mark.
"But they just got it. I was so surprised I am now working with them because I believe they are the best Led Zeppelin tribute band in the world."If you have 'A Whole Lotta Love' for 'Rock and Roll' and all the music of Led Zeppelin, don't miss the chance to see this acclaimed international band, live and loud. At Twin Towns Showroom, Friday, November 23, 8pm (Qld time) tickets are $49.
To book, phone 1800 014 014, go to twintowns.com.au or book on the Twin Towns app.
