Well Hello again HotBloggas!
We’re back home again for a while – a little haven of tranquility amidst the raging torrents of tour schedules – and the opportunity arises to compose ones thoughts a little, and put finger to keyboard.
The Olympics are well underway and a record medal haul looks on the cards for team GB. The dedication, application and indeed, perspiration of our noble athletes should be inspiration to us all to stretch ourselves just that bit further, in order that we may be the best we possibly can. This is something that Hats off to Led Zeppelin aspire to. There isn’t a bridge too far, a mountain too high or valley too low that we wouldn’t say ‘Sod this for a game of soldiers – anyone fancy a pint?’ Our dedication to drinking is of Olympic proportions!
But I am in jest, Dear Reader. Hats off to Led Zeppelin are committed to bringing you the best evening’s entertainment you could have (that’s legal, anyway). We do this for a living, so we have to devote all our working day to it, and most of our evenings off, too! That’s why we are currently in training for our most ambitious project yet, more of which in a moment. Everyone in the band has vowed to undertake a fitness regime that would floor a rugby team! Kevin has to walk a quarter of a mile every day to the Jolly Farmer’s and back, while Peter runs to the tobacconist 3 times a week. Jack lifts weights (well, pints actually – but they’re heavy!) and Simon has four children.
So you see – we are deadly serious about getting fit.
Anyway, enough of these banal ramblings – here’s the news…
Recent dates have seen your favourite Led Zeppelin Tribute band take the message to Swindon, Eastbourne, Nuneaton and Leeds; and judging by the copious posts on our social network sites, it seems the boys did well! As always we thank you for your continuing support. We know that without your contribution this could never happen. (And we wouldn’t want to leave you with some of our competitors, would we?)
Anyway, the next couple of weeks will see us preparing for the launch of the HotLedZeppelin 2012 tour! This is when we get to show off lots of new material, new merchandise and fresh underwear for Dirty Jack. (We can already hear the sighs of relief from some of you front row goblins!) There’s one further warm up date in Basingstoke (Pure Bar) on the 10th, before the official opening ceremony at The Stables, Milton Keynes on 18th August. We believe that tickets are selling extremely well, so don’t delay in ordering yours! As our dear friend Gay Randy says ‘Oooh I’d better get me arse in gear. I don’t wanna miss that!’ No Randy, you certainly don’t!
After that, dear HotBloggas, we will commence a gargantuan schlep all over the country. So to find out your nearest opportunity to catch the band in action, go to www.hatsofftoledzeppelin.co.uk where you’ll find all sorts of fab things HotLedZep related.

See YOU on tour …
