Tribute band bring a ‘Whole Lotta Love’ to the Empire

A Led Zeppelin tribute band will be bringing a ‘Whole Lotta Love’ to the Thwaites Empire Theatre on Friday, 5th February.

Mothership, described in the press as one of the ‘most-authentic-sounding’ Led Zeppelin tribute bands in the UK, kick off their brand new multi-media tour at the theatre based on Aqueduct Road, Blackburn.

The centrepiece of the show is two and a half hours of classic Led Zeppelin, including hits such as Black Dog, Kashmir, Achilles Last Stand, Rain Song and a Whole Lotta Love.

The band, who have been performing together for over six years, don’t rely on wigs and pantomime mimicry but rather emphasise the quality of the music.

Audiences can expect a show with a difference as the band have combined forces with Vesbim Media to produce a multi-media event, which will include projected images, video lasers, an elaborate light show and the voices of Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.

Classic Rock Magazine stated Mothership give a “CD-quality performance” in one of their most recent publications.

Following the first performance at the Empire, the tribute band will begin their European tour, which is spread across Holland, Belgium and Germany.

Guitarist, David Crilly, said: “This is the most exciting period in the band’s history to date. We have some changes in personnel who have added drive and energy to the band. The inclusion of keyboard player, Toni Hughes, means we can recreate the depth and range of sounds to make these performances really special.”

Mothership perform at the Empire on Friday, 5th February, 2016 at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the show cost £12. Book here or call the booking office 01254 685500 Monday to Friday 10am – 12.30pm.
