A concert marking the legendary after-show gigs and parties by seminal rock band Zed Zeppelin will take place in May.
The four-piece band redefined the parameter’s of what a rock band should be when they played five sold-out concerts at Earls Court Exhibition Centre in 1975.
After each show, Jimmy Page, who now lives in Kensington , bandmates Robert Plant, John Bonham, John Paul Jones and their entourage would then make the short walk to The Troubadour on Old Brompton Road where they would jam, jape and let off steam.
Now Letz Zep, regarded as Britain’s finest Led Zeppelin tribute band with recreate those legendary nights with an acoustic performance at the same venue on May 19.
The concert will feature all the big hits and a few rare but equally loved acoustic songs covering the entire Led Zeppelin back catalogue, and include Gallows Pole, Going to California, and the classic Stairway to Heaven.
Letz Zep’s acoustic segment is a popular part of the bands full set, and has been performed to acclaim during their world tour, which has seen them play 35 countries on four continents.
The series of concerts at the famous venue, which is now being demolished as part of the Earl’s Court redevelopment , is now simply known as Led Zeppelin 1975, and performed when the band were considered to be at the very peak of the creative powers. The concerts are considered by some critics to be the best ever performed by the band.
The concert takes place on May 19 at The Troubadour, and will see Letz Zep supported by Wild-Heart.
Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets, which are £25, are available by calling the box office number on 020 7370 1434.
In 2014 The Troubadour played host to a benefit gig to help the Save Earl's Court Campaign .
