Tribute band pays homage to two legendary rock groups

Purple Zeppelin

Published at 9:40am 12th January 2018

Two rock bands will be remembered in Aylesbury soon, as a tribute band returns to the town.

Featured in the BBC TV documentary The Joy of the Guitar Riff, Purple Zeppelin are proud to pay tribute to the two greatest Rock Bands of all time, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin - Together on the same bill for the very first time.

They're heading to the Limelight Theatre in a couple of weeks.

Many years have passed since the last UK gigs from the classic line-ups of both bands.

Whether you were lucky enough to have seen the originals live or not, Purple Zeppelin will take you back to the magic, the excitement and the sheer raw energy generated by those incredible musicians.

In a "full on" two and a half hour show complete with costume changes for each band, you'll hear more than 30 classic songs - basically the best bits, all of the time!

Purple Zeppelin are four talented and versatile musicians with decades of playing between them, comprising thousands of sessions and gigs both in the UK and overseas, selling out venues up and down the country.

However, this is much more than just a great band performing all the 'Greatest Hits' - it's a theatrical insight into these two giants of rock, complete with special effects, onstage 'artistic differences' and even some audience participation.

Voted Best Tribute Band of 2012, the band are genuine admirers of both Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin and with the accent firmly on entertainment, this show promises to be a night not to be missed, complete with Ritchie Blackmore's Lute, Jimmy Page's twin neck Guitar and Theremin, and a very special Violin Bow Solo.
