GET THE LED OUT RETURNS LIVE IN CONCERT AT TAMPA THEATRE

Tickets Go On Sale Friday, Dec. 12 for the Thursday, April 2 Show 

TAMPA, Fla. (Dec. 9, 2014) – Tampa Theatre and Soulshine Music are proud to announce that Get The Led Out – dubbed by media as “The American Led Zeppelin” – is returning to Tampa for another live performance on the Theatre’s historic stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 2, 2015.

Tickets are $28.50 & $38 (plus applicable service fees) and will go on sale at noon Friday, Dec. 12 at the Tampa Theatre Box Office, located at 711 N. Franklin Street in downtown Tampa, and online at www.TampaTheatre.org

From the bombastic and epic to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) captures the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brings it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before. With the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-creates the songs in all their depth and glory with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. Without wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants: a high energy Zeppelin concert with an honest, heart-thumping intensity.

The 2+ hour set spans the career of the legendary British supergroup, with a strong focus on the early years. They also touch on the deeper cuts that were seldom, if ever, heard in concert and include a special “acoustic set” with Zep favorites such as “Tangerine” and “Battle of Evermore” performed in their original instrumentation with guest singer Diana DeSantis. Their approach to performing this hallowed catalogue is not unlike a classical performance. “Led Zeppelin are sort of the classical composers of the rock era,” says lead vocalist Paul Sinclair. “I believe that 100 years from now, they will be looked at as the Bach or Beethoven of our time. As cliché as it sounds, their music is timeless.”
