Following an uber successful bout of dates in January as well as various one-off shows throughout the year, LED ZEPPELIN 2 — the ultimate Led Zeppelin tribute band fronted by Yakuza’s Bruce Lamont — will embark on another journey this Fall. The tour is set to commence on September 5 in Toledo, Ohio and roll through nine cities, including two nights in Allston, Massachusetts, with additional dates to be added soon.
Comments Lamont: “We’re super stoked to hit the East Coast this Fall. We have some songs we’re gonna debut for the first time and other surprises. See you out there!”

Crowned “…the best Zep band going anywhere,” by Time Out New York and, “…the closest thing to seeing the real Led Zeppelin,” by The Dallas Observer, LED ZEPPELIN 2 brings you the excitement of the original legends “In Concert” by reenacting the onstage interaction that earned Led Zeppelin their monolithic status. Rather than a “greatest hits” show, you get to experience Zeppelin as Zeppelin would have played live themselves.
LZ2 have been selling-out venues across the U.S. since 2010 and continue to draw rave reviews for a “spot-on” Zeppelin show, playing deep cuts and classic tracks from the entire catalog, and occasionally entire Led Zeppelin performances from specific shows and sets from the band’s storied history.
“There are a lot of Zep tributes out there, but this one’s our favorite, not least because its members fully immerse themselves in the musicianship and style of the four classic-rock heavyweights. That Yakuza howler Bruce Lamont does a mean Robert Plant is icing on the cake.” — Time Out Chicago
“…these imitators get the Led out in a way your battered copy of Physical Graffiti never will, right down to the unearthly tones of guitarist Paul Kamp’s bowed Les Paul solos. Sure, purists are still holding out for the real deal’s tour, but even if that happens, it’s doubtful that Robert Plant can wail the opening lines of ‘Black Dog’ as well as his LED ZEPPELIN 2 counterpart, Bruce Lamont,” — The Onion
“The band is on its way out of the minor leagues, and is now playing bigger venues for a generation of fans too young to have ever experienced the genuine article.” — The New Yorker
“…such authentic raw flair, the entire crowd bought it, no questions lingering… It was nasty… hard to believe how balls-out fantastic they are.” — Atlanta’s Backstage Beat
