Celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of the longest running large scale Led Zeppelin homage concerts and the 40th anniversary of the ground breaking album Houses of the Holy, CCEntertainment brings you the WHOLE LOTTA LOVE Led Zeppelin Celebration. Rocking Australia this April and May, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE is set to deliver an epic musical event, recreating the magic and mystique of Led Zeppelin.
To mark the ten-year milestone, the WHOLE LOTTA LOVE tour will for the first time include Sydney’s prestigious State Theatre, after selling out Sydney’s Enmore Theatre for the past three years. The concert also returns to Brisbane’s QPAC and Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, but not before two intimate shows at The Laycock Theatre in Gosford and the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre.
Featuring some of the country’s best rock musicians, this mammoth homage to Led Zeppelin will celebrate and recreate the music from one of the most influential bands that have walked the Earth.
This year the show amps up their line-up to fourteen artists, including Jimmy Cupples (The Voice); Steve Balbi (Noiseworks); Simon Meli (The Widowbirds); Dallas Frasca and Natasha Stuart. These electrifying guest vocalists will join an exceptional powerhouse band including Gordon Rytmeister (drums), Greg Royal (bass), Stuart Fraser (Noiseworks – guitars), Robert Woolf (keyboards), Tony Azzopardi (percussion), Adrian Keating (violin), Rachel Thompson (viola), and Charlotte Roberts (cello) under the creative direction of Joseph Calderazzo (guitars), to bring it on home.
Timeless classics including ‘Stairway To Heaven’, ‘Black Dog’, ‘Kashmir’, ‘Battle of Evermore’ and ‘Immigrant Song’ will be performed amongst a collection of other hits and rarities from the band’s infamous career.
Universally recognised as one of the world’s most influential bands, Led Zeppelin produced nine studio albums, three live albums, sold a staggering 200+ million albums worldwide, toured the globe and influenced music and fans for generations to come. Released on 28th March 1973, their fifth studio album Houses of the Holy featured defining songs such as D’yer Mak’er and The Ocean. Certified eleven times platinum by the RIAA, and ranked in the Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of all time list, Houses of the Holy was seen as a stylistic turning point in the lifespan of Led Zeppelin.
The continued success and longevity of WHOLE LOTTA LOVE is owed not only to the devotion of the fans, but also to the dedication and passion of the performers. Coming together under the direction of Joseph Calderazzo, WHOLE LOTTA LOVE delivers an authentic Led Zeppelin experience like no other.
