'10 Years Gone'
World Tour 2017
Letz Zep are the Official Number One tribute to Led Zeppelin
and Baby They Ain't Foolin'
An achievement marked by the Authoritative Ticketmaster Organisation, when they
awarded Letz Zep with the status of both ‘The Most Popular’ and ‘The Most Highly Rated’ tribute to Led Zeppelin in the UK today.
It has been said that a concert by Led Zeppelin could knock the world of its axis.
In 2007 Led Zeppelin performed at the 02 in London, the three surviving members getting back together, with Jason Bonham on drums, for a one-off concert for Ahmed Artegun benefit concert.
Led Zeppelin had reformed before, but these were disjointed and rusty, this was to be the first full concert since the band disbanded in 1980. The 02 gave the band a chance to set the record straight, to put a full stop to Led Zeppelin, to set the record straight and to remind the world of just why they were considered the best live band in the world.
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones performed with Jason Bonham, son of John, on Drums for the most anticipated concert ever!
According to Guinness World Records the concert holds the world record for the "Highest Demand for Tickets for One Music Concert" as 20 million requests for the reunion show were rendered online.
Tickets were made available via a lottery system. The website exceeded its bandwidth allowance and crashed almost immediately following the announcement. Predicting that the gig would cause the "largest demand for one show in history". One million people registered for fewer than 20,000 available tickets.
Ten long years have passed and it looks increasingly like that will be the last time the surviving members will get together onstage ever again.
Letz Zep are the official number one tribute to Led Zeppelin. They have performed at Led Zeppelin launch parties, legendary Zep vocalist Robert Plant commented that it was like watching himself onstage ‘I walked in, I saw me’ was his comment.
Letz Zep tours take in 34 countries on four continents, and they will be performing songs from the entire Led Zeppelin back catalogue on their Letz Zep – 10 Years Gone World Tour 2017.
Letz Zep are the best known and most successful tribute to Led Zeppelin.
Even legendary Zep frontman Robert Plant commented it was like watching himself onstage, after he came to a Letz Zep concert. His comment in Q Magazine in an interview was :-
'I walked in, I saw me'
Both Jimmy Page and Robert Plant have attended gigs by Letz Zep, and we're suitably impressed, so much so that they invited Letz Zep to perform at their prestigious official launch party for Led Zeppelin's 'Mothership' CD, In Soho, London.
Letz Zep is a band formed by talented, experienced and respected musicians who are all true Zep fans with a strong musical pedigree.
Its members have toured with artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Roger Daltrey, Debbie Bonham, Steve Hackett, Dr Feelgood, Saxon and Uriah Heep – to name but a few.
There are many bands that copy the greats of old, but only few do justice to what the legends have created.
All four members possess the considerable musical ability required to produce a completely convincing recreation of Led Zeppelin in their prime, complete with the "tight but loose" raw excitement which was the trademark of a Led Zeppelin concert.
Letz Zep are a truly International band, performing in over 35 countries on 4 Continents in their recent tours.
As well as performing at major festivals word wide, including prestigious event such as Viva Latino in Mexico,
Bospop in Holland and the 25th anniversary of WACKEN WOA in Germany.
Demand for Letz Zep has never been greater
Led Zeppelin themselves pay respect to their disciples, and all have met their counterparts.
Letz Zep not only performed at The Official Launch Party for the 'Mothership' CD, but were also invited to The Premiere of 'Celebration Day' in Hammersmith, London.
They were also invited to the re-union show at The 02 Arena,
and a special viewing for the remastered 'The Song Remains The Same' DVD.
This is only when Billy Kulke, Andy Gray and company aren't touring the world, be it in Paris for sold-out shows at the Olympia or at Heineken Arena Madrid, or festivals in Mexico or Venezuela.
Letz Zep has long since become a global phenomenon and a touring force in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Just like their peers.
Letz Zep cover the entire catalogue of their idols and keeps adding more classics to their repertoire, thus not merely delivering the obvious. Their performance is an expansive display of what the icons have created and enthuses both novices to Led Zeppelin as well as experts.

Le groupe Anglais Led Zeppelin a fait rocker le monde entier en 1968, explosant sur la scène musicale avec une combinaison de heavy guitares, blues et folk musique.
Elu le groupe N° 1 de tous les temps par le magazine Rolling Stone, Led Zeppelin est aussi considéré comme étant le groupe le plus influent de l’histoire du rock. Son empreinte est toujours vive de nos jours sur les jeunes générations de musiciens. Quand Led Zeppelin a décidé de se reformer et de jouer live pour la 1ère fois après 27 ans d’absence (London’s 02 Arena en Décembre 2007), c’est en quelques minutes seulement que s’écoulèrent les 20.000 billets d’entrée, laissant 20 millions de fans frustrés !
On comprend aisément que ce groupe phénoménal ait engendré des tribute bands. L’un d’entre eux est le groupe anglais Letz Zep, communément considéré comme le meilleur groupe hommage à Led Zeppelin.
Letz Zep est en tournée internationale depuis 5 ans. Tellement pointus dans la reproduction du groupe original, ils laissent souvent les fans bluffés et troublés. Robert Plant lui-même, à l'issue d’un de leur show, a dit : "I walked in - I saw me"!! (Je suis venu - je me suis vu !") -Interview Q Magazine-. Quant à lui, Jimmy Page leur a déclaré : "j'aimerais venir jouer avec vous un de ces jours".
Letz Zep a été récompensé par une invitation à venir jouer à la fête de lancement du dernier album de Led Zeppelin "Mothership", établissant ainsi leur suprématie dans leur domaine et gagnant un nombre incalculable de fans, y compris dans le monde des médias et des célébrités.
Un concert de Letz Zep n'est pas juste un exercice stylé de nostalgiques, c'est surtout du rock & roll de très haut niveau, une révolte contre le temps qui passe, et rappelle combien Led Zeppelin est une source d'inspiration éternelle.
Letz Zep est formé de musiciens talentueux, expérimentés et respectés, dotés de fortes identités musicales. Le chanteur est de surcroit doté d'une incroyable ressemblance avec Robert Plant. Sa performance est si convaincante que le management de Led Zeppelin les aurait confondus. Robert Plant dit que c'est comme s'il se regardait lui-même sur scène.
Oficialmente declarada la banda tributo numero uno de Led Zeppelin en el Reino Unido,.
Letz Zep nació con el propósito de ser una banda homenaje de uno de los grupos de rock más importantes que han surgido en el panorama musical de todos los tiempos, Led Zeppelin.
El grupo homenaje Letz Zep recupera el directo de esta banda y transmite vivamente su música y el ambiente que en sus conciertos se creaba. No quieren suplantar al grupo al contrario, lo tratan con mucho respeto incluso Robert Plant ha felicitado a su sosia Billy Kulke. Tienen la bendición de Jimmy Page y Robert Plant que vio al grupo actuando, dijo: “Soy yo en el escenario”.
En aproximadamente dos horas de concierto se repasa la discografía de Led Zeppelín con “Escalera al cielo”, “Whole lotta love”, “Rock roll”, etc..., la lista es muy larga.
Letz Zep es la única forma de escuchar todas las canciones de Led Zeppelin en directo. Es uno de los mejores grupos tributo de Inglaterra.
. Siempre han tenido una gran afluencia de público y muy buenas críticas de la prensa.
Todos los miembros de la banda tienen una larga carrera musical y mucha calidad. Los une el interés común de reproducir la música de Zeppelin.
Ültimamente han tocado en Hungría, Grecia, Alamania, Italia, Hollanday Francia donde han tenido un gran éxito. En febrero tienen previsto actuar en Brasil y Mexico.
