Beloved Led Zeppelin tribute band Celebration Day plays a pair of shows at the Pageant this weekend. Saturday's installment is already sold out, and we've got tickets to Friday's with your name on them.
We named Celebration Day the Best Tribute Band in St. Louis in 2011, saying:
St. Louis is a town with an unwavering dedication to classic rock; if the phrase "KSHE Classic" means anything to you, you know what we mean. So it's no surprise that tribute bands dedicated to re-creating the work of rock & roll behemoths have become big business in town. El Monstero's annual Pink Floyd spectacular regularly sells out multiple nights at the Pageant, but Celebration Day's tribute to Led Zeppelin is proving to be big business as well. With a crew of local scene vets (including three El Monstero players), Celebration Day goes deep with the mystical, muscular hard rock that Led Zep perfected. And since Robert Plant has his heart set on genteel Americana these days, this is as close as we're gonna get to true Zep enlightenment.
