Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

Kind of sad. Really what anybody would pay indicates the value of that experience to them. You previously thought this was "value".

That's a pub tribute band with no "connection"! There is an Australian set-up, CCEntertainment, which does an annual 'Led Zeppelin Celebration' called 'Whole Lotta Love' - 4 alternating vocalists, 9 piece band, generally filling smaller theatres. Don't try to act as Led Zeppelin. Musically superb. I think last time I saw them it was about $70AUD. Easily worth double that.

I'm not anti pubs. Amongst the best shows I saw this year were free in pubs or $15-20AUD in small rooms.

I also paid the most I ever have for a concert ticket (last week in a 12000 seat arena). $406AUD for a pommy bass player playing tunes from his earlier bands - and well and truly got my money's worth. I'd have to dig back to Queen in 1976 or the O2 Arena 10/12/2007 show (which to attend, cost me nearly 10x the amount last week) for a show which I'd say might have been"better".

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to JBLZE in Sydney, am OK with the price and don't care whose not there!

 

 

I’ve re-read your post and can’t for the life of me figure out the point your making, or whether or not you’re having a go at me. 😂

Nah, not having a go Xolo1974. That's the beauty of opinions - everyone's is different and valid. I had determined that those prices are acceptable to me (my point) - I can't make that decision for anybody else. The "sad" comment was referring to on principle you wouldn't pay that much for a such a show, now matter how good it might be. The $45 tribute band I expect was a great night. I've seen such bands too but I'm expecting that the JBLZE production (and staging costs, no doubt) will be at another level - I'll let you know in 5 weeks.

Bugger!

No word yet from Ticketmaster, even though it seems it was announced 2 days ago. Actually not holding my breath - he was to tour here in 2012 (and I had a ticket then too) and it was cancelled without rescheduling "due to unforseen circumstances".

Leaves me just with the Foo Fighters that weekend... I'll live :)

From this site..

https://www.jblzedownunder.com/

It still says in the blurb under the poster "Late Jan/Feb" - which are the dates. Ticketmaster have this Feb date (Feb 1st in Bris which I have 2 tickets already) as well as the new May dates. So maybe additional shows???

I cannot see anywhere on the site I quote above stating it's been postponed or moved.

At least the reacheduled dates are better than his last proposed Australian tour a few years ago that was cancelled. I had airfares booked for & had to lose.

The Ticketmaster site is showing the rescheduled dates now as well
