Tribute bands keep Led Zeppelin's undying appeal alive

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

Keeping Led Zeppelin's undying appeal alive through imitation are today's Led Zeppelin tribute bands. Listed here are six bands, half in the United Kingdom and half in the United States. This constitutes only a few of the Led Zeppelin tribute bands in the world.

United States
  • Zoso
    Reader's comment: "If you're ever in the Charlotte, N.C., area, you might want to check out Amos' Southend. They have a lot of tribute bands, and a Zeppelin tribute band from Los Angeles called Zoso appears there about every two or three months. They are due in for another show on Nov. 27. These guys are absolutely amazing." - Scott, North Carolina, Nov. 21
    Next shows: Tonight & tomorrow, Univ. of Alabama at Tuscaloosa
  • Four Sticks

    Next show: Tomorrow (Nov. 23), Black Rock & Blue, Fairfield, Conn.
  • Led Zepland

    Next show: Nov. 27, Coach House, San Juan Capistrano, Calif.
    Rumor has it a studio album is on the way!
United Kingdom
  • Fred Zeppelin

    Reader's comment: "I went to The Limelight Club in Crewe to see a tribute band called Fred Zeppelin. What a performance these guys gave! A two-hour-plus gig was absolutely fantastic. Their renditions of 'Dazed and Confused' and 'Stairway to Heaven' were the best I have heard from any tribute band." - Ashley, Chesire, England, Oct. 30
    Next show: Tonight (Nov. 22), Schofields, Birmingham, England
  • Simply Led

    Reader's comment: "This was a special event that I will remember for all my life. The reason why I'm unsure of the set list is because I was just having too much fun. It was also very refreshing to see how the audience seemed so split between old people coming for a bit of nostalgia and younger kids coming to see what the whole fuzz was all about. Simply Led surely showed them that." - Daniel, Reykjavik, Iceland, April 9
    Next show: Dec. 14, Club 85, Hitchin, England
  • Whole Lotta Led

    Next show: Tonight (Nov. 22), Central Station, Wrexham, England
    Then: Tomorrow (Nov. 23), Pavilion, Bath, England (where Led Zeppelin played in 1968 and 1971)
