Dread Zeppelin tickets - Dread Zeppelin tour dates

Dread Zeppelin Tour

Going out to see a cover band or a tribute band is always a good time listening to some of the classics from any of your favorite bands without actually seeing them perform, but it's a rarity that a tribute band is actually an amazing band in their own right. Dread Zeppelin has made quite a name for itself over the past two decades as a tribute band that is well worth your time. One of the most unique bands around, this is the kind of show that you'll want to bring your friends and family to, as you'll be having a great time in no time once the members take to the stage! Now is the perfect chance to head out and catch Dread Zeppelin at one of their upcoming shows, so do yourself a favor and grab your tickets from StubHub so that you can see them perform live!


About The Band

With the group officially forming in 1999, Dread Zeppelin decided to take their ample amounts of talent and love for classic music groups and artists such as Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley, Bob Marley, and others by putting on the best shows around. And the group definitely has a draw and appeal to bring in the crowds of people, as the group has more than just talent and skill to gain the attention of the public. Fronted by a 300 pound Elvis impersonator that goes by the name of Tortelvis, the group has made a name for itself as a wild cover band that performs with a rock reggae style. It was after their first singles were released to rave reviews and success that they signed to a label and released their debut album, "Un-Led-Ed", in 1990. The band has gone on to release fifteen more full length albums that span a wide array of artists and style but still keep the same talent, style, and tongue-in-cheek humor that made them a success from the start.


Breakthrough Album/Song

A tough call to make, Dread Zeppelin made a huge impression on the music scene with two initial singles and then a huge splash with their debut album, both more than worthy of a mention. Their first two singles came in 1989 in the form of their own version of two Led Zeppelin singles, the insanely popular "Immigrant Song" and the B-side "Hey Hey What Can I Do". This release was ridiculously popular and became a huge success, warranting a massive repress of the vinyl that sold very well. It was after this release that they dropped a few more singles and were signed to the IRS label in 1990, prompting them to release their debut album, "Un-Led-Ed", that same year. The result was a large success, gaining praise from all over but most famously from original Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant, who actually claimed to prefer their version of "Your Time Is Gonna Come" to the original.


Dread Zeppelin Trivia

Before recruiting Tortelvis, the 300 pound Elvis impersonator front man of the group, the group known as Dread Zeppelin used to be a completely different kind of band. Known as "The Prime Movers", this group was a semi-popular band from the mid to late 80's and found moderate success in the UK with a slew of singles. In fact, one of their songs was actually included in a movie in the 80's by Michael Mann called "Manhunter". This was all well and good, but upon the dissolution of the band in 1989 the core members began recruiting for a new band and just so happened to find Greg Tortell (Tortelvis) when he supposedly rammed a milk float into the back of their car. This strange incident of coincidental happenstance was the beginning of what would be a long and fruitful career for the group and Tortelvis, as they continue to find success on stages all across the country to this day.
