Fans of 70s and 80s music are in for a treat tomorrow.

There are two high-class tribute acts in town bashing out the music of Led Zeppelin and Queen.

Hats Off To Led Zeppelin will rock the rafters at Lowther Pavillion in Lytham and apparently these impersonators are a cut above most – winners of this year’s National Tribute Awards.

They are even co-managed by Warren Grant, son of legendary Led Zeppelin manager Peter Grant, who said after seeing the tribute band live: “You guys really did the band justice!”

If you fancy dusting off your flares and joining in the fun, tickets are £17.50 and available from or the box office on 01253 794 221.

Meanwhile, if the music of the late, great Freddie Mercury and Queen is more your bag, the place to be is the Opera House in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Formed in 2000 after Gary Mullen (performing as Mercury) won ITV’s Stars In Their Eyes grand final with a record vote, he and his band are said to deliver the look, the sound, the pomp and the showmanship of one of the greatest live bands of all time.

Over the last decade One Night of Queen has toured non-stop around the world, performing at theatres, arenas and festivals to sell-out crowds in Germany, France, Holland, USA, New Zealand and South Africa. They have also twice performed at the BBC Proms In The Park event in front of 45,000 fans in Hyde Park.

All of which means tonight should be pretty good. Tickets are £17.50, the show starts at 7.30pm and more details are available at or by calling 0870 380 1111.
