Full-Album Performances of Beatles and Zeppelin Classics Headline Season 8 of ‘World’s Greatest Tribute Bands’
The long-running AXS series The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands returns next month for an eighth season filled with appearances from some of the soundalike circuit’s most uncanny acts — and full-album performances of classic LPs like the Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Led Zeppelin‘s IV.
“Some of our most popular episodes have featured tribute artists performing a classic album in its entirety, so this season, we’ve brought that idea back with the incredible Led Zepagain and The Fab Four taking on two huge albums in the season premiere and finale,” enthuses host and producer Katie Daryl in the new season’s press release. “This season I am also excited to introduce seven new, hand-picked tributes who really impressed me with their sound and musicianship, and I am sure music fans will love.”
In addition to the full-album bookend episodes, this run of World’s Greatest Tribute Bands features appearances from tribute acts dedicated to a range of artists that includes Metallica, ZZ Top and the Allman Brothers Band. Free tickets to tapings, held at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, are now available; check out a complete list of tribute bands and performance dates below.
