I Have Eight Free Tickets to the Pageant This Weekend: Win Them
[Update: We have winners! Ken Jennings will be attending Friday night and Shanna Kiel gets the Saturday ones. Pick them up at the box office before the show. Enjoy!]
St. Louis' favorite Led Zeppelin tribute band, Celebration Day, is playing back-to-back shows at the Pageant this weekend on Friday and Saturday. Somehow, I wound up with four tickets to each night -- and you can win them!
To win, tell us what you'd name your Led Zeppelin tribute band and we'll pick our favorites. You can post a reply in the comments or through our Facebook or Twitter pages. Make sure you provide a way to get ahold of you. We're going to give these out in sets of four (one set for Friday and one for Saturday), so remember to let us know which day you prefer.
We named Celebration Day the Best Tribute Band in St. Louis in 2011. Here's what we had to say about the band then:
St. Louis is a town with an unwavering dedication to classic rock; if the phrase "KSHE Classic" means anything to you, you know what we mean. So it's no surprise that tribute bands dedicated to re-creating the work of rock & roll behemoths have become big business in town. El Monstero's annual Pink Floyd spectacular regularly sells out multiple nights at the Pageant, but Celebration Day's tribute to Led Zeppelin is proving to be big business as well. With a crew of local scene vets (including three El Monstero players), Celebration Day goes deep with the mystical, muscular hard rock that Led Zep perfected. And since Robert Plant has his heart set on genteel Americana these days, this is as close as we're gonna get to true Zep enlightenment.
