Top Led Zeppelin tribute act heading to Bromsgrove this Friday

Harry Leach 22nd Nov, 2018

A LED Zeppelin tribute band will celebrate 25 years together with a rock and roll gig in Bromsgrove on Friday, November 23.

Fred Zeppelin have been nominated as one of the ‘top ten best live bands to see’ by a Kerrang reader’s poll.

And they have more in common with the 60’s band then you might think.

During their time together they have jammed on stage with Led Zeppelin’s frontman Robert Plant and John Bonham’s son Jason.

Fred Zeppelin drummer, Steve Black, said: “We’ve also had Magnum’s frontman Bob Catley, Whitesnake’s guitarist Mel Galley and Slade’s Jimmy Lea come to our gigs in the past.

“It’s worth taking a camera with you to the show because you never know who you might be standing next to in the audience.”

The two-hour gig will also coincide with Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary year.

“We don’t take ourselves too seriously because we know all the real praise belongs to Robert, Jimmy, John, Paul Jones and Bonzo,” added Steve.

But ‘The Fredz’, as they like to be called, want to make it clear they are not a look-a-like band.

They spend all of their energy on trying to replicate the music of Led Zeppelin rather than trying to look like them.

The gig will be held at the Lickey End Club on Alcester Road, 8pm.

Tickets can be bought on the door for £10 but can also be purchased through www.wegottickets.com/event/445288 or by calling 01527 878092
