LED ZEPPELIN 2 To Kick Off First Shows of 2012!

LED ZEPPELIN 2 — the ultimate Led Zeppelin tribute band fronted by Yakuza’s Bruce Lamont — will embark on another round of tour dates this Friday. The short run will commence with two consecutive (and SOLD OUT) nights at Chicago’s House Of Blues where the band will play a 1971 and 1975 Zep sets.

As an extra treat for fans, the band recorded a cover of the Yardbirds’ “Happenings Ten Years Time Ago” from 1966. It’s one of the few Yardbirds tunes to feature both Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck on twin lead guitars as well John Paul Jones on bass. Led Zeppelin never played this song live thus Lamont and his cohorts reworked the track LZ2 style with session bassist Scott Lucas from Local H.

LED ZEPPELIN 2 brings you the excitement of Led Zeppelin “In Concert” by re-enacting the live improvisation and onstage interaction that earned Led Zeppelin their legendary status. Rather than a “greatest hits” show, you get to experience Zeppelin as Zeppelin would have played live in front of an audience. LZ2 sold-out venues across the U.S. in 2010 and the early part of 2011 and continue to draw rave reviews for a “spot-on” Zeppelin show, playing deep cuts and classic tracks from the entire catalog, and occasionally entire Led Zeppelin performances from specific shows and sets from the band’s storied history.
