Letz Zep Spring tour

- March 5, 2007

Letz Zep have long been regarded as Europe’s leading tribute to the music Led Zeppelin,

and now the band are receiving worldwide recognition.

Letz Zep have just returned to Europe after performing in Venezuela to a crowd of over 6000 ecstatic rock fans! At the annual Gillmanfest rock festival, Puerto la Cruz in February this year..

 

On their latest tour, aptly named The Songs Remain the Same, Letz Zep will be performing the music of Led Zeppelin with more of the ‘live’ feel, as Zeppelin portrayed in their DVD release, simply entitled ‘DVD’. This live recording of their legendary shows at Earls Court, London from 1975, sold more than 500,000 copies on its initial release, and went on to be the biggest selling music DVD of all time!

 


India trip

- November 16, 2005

Letz Zep vocalist Billy Kulke recently followed in Led Zeppelin's footsteps with a two week tour of India, performing with local musicians in Goa, Munnar and to an audience of over 5000 people at the Shimoga Festival. The blond singer had to be escorted back to his hotel at Shimoga as he was getting mobbed! Billy also sang "Going to California" on Kerala's main TV station, to an estimated audience in excess of 20 million people.
Traveling by Royal Enfield 350 Bullet motorcycle (the best way to take in the breathtaking scenery of the sub-continent) also led to a very close encounter with a 14 foot long King Cobra. To see a King Cobra close up in its natural environment is considered by locals to be a fortunate omen which brings good luck. After this remarkable encounter with one of the world's most deadly serpents, fellow travellers could not believe that a 350 Bullet could travel at the speed achieved by Billy that day! Next stop - Kashmir of course...
 

John Paul Jones in Frankfurt

Letz Zep drummer Simon Jeffrey was introduced to none other than John Paul Jones himself, receiving his Lifetime Achievement Award. Simon had a good old chat with JPJ, who said he'd heard of Letz Zep and remembered that Robert Plant attended a Letz Zep show, and found that amusing.
Simon continues 'He was more than happy to pose with me for a pic, even though I'm nearly ripping his shoulder off with my grip! All in all it was a great honour to meet him and an opportunity I wont forget.'
John Paul Jones wished Letz Zep 'All the best!' and said he hoped to catch the band live one day.
