Ledd Zepp have reformed after nearly six years and will perform at Motherwell Concert Hall on Saturday, February 28.

‘The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Tribute’ recreate the band’s triumphant 2007 reunion concert at the O2 Arena in London.

Guitarist Jack Nimmo said: “We didn’t intend to be away for so long, but after we’d done all the theatres and clubs we decided to give it a rest for a few months.

“However, we all had other projects and the months turned into years and suddenly we were more than five years down the line.

“A promoter approached us and asked if we would get back together to recreate the Celebration Day show from the O2 show and it sounded like a great idea.

“Something like 20 million people applied for tickets to see Led Zeppelin, including ourselves, so there was no way they’d all get to see it so this is a chance to relive it.

“There were other bands involved on the night so Led Zeppelin only did 90 minutes so we do follow the same set list for the first hour and the last half hour and in between do some favourites like Moby Dick, Heartbreaker and Communication Breakdown they didn’t get to.

“Although we have been away for a while it’s just like riding a bike, we did a show in Langholm last month to try it out and things are coming together nicely.

“We are glad Led Zeppelin reformed as we’re as old, if not older than them, so allows us to act our age and not have to pretend to be 20 any more.

“As we’re all local so performing in Motherwell is ideal and we are anticipating a great atmosphere.”

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets costing £16 are available by calling 01698 403120 or visit Culture NL
