The essence of Zeppelin comes to Victoria

From high energy electric classics to beautiful acoustic works, Led Zepagain resurrects original Led Zeppelin

Led Zepagain brings Led Zeppelin back to life at the Upstairs Cabaret Oct. 13.

From high energy electric classics to beautiful acoustic works, Led Zepagain resurrects original Led Zeppelin front man Jimmy Page’s soaring guitar leads, John Paul Jones’ brilliant keyboard passages, John Bonham’s trademark pounding rhythms and signature Robert Plant vocals.

Led Zepagain will take Victoria back to the hey day of hair bands with its show at the Upstairs Cabaret, 5 Bastion Square, Oct. 13.

As you experience immortal classics Stairway to Heaven, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Black Dog, you’ll believe Page is right; Led Zepagain is “as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal.”

Taking on the role of Page is Christian Nesmith, son of famous Monkee Michael Nesmith.

After watching Page perform in Zeppelin’s live concert movie The Song Remains the Same, Nesmith settled his focus on guitar. An avid student of Page from age 13, his intense application of the tone and style of the master has made Nesmith a guitar master.
