k.d. lang and Get The Led Out
The Music Hall, the landmark Victorian theatre in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has just announced two additions to its lineup in the Intimately Yours concert series for this summer: Get the Led Out, the “American Led Zeppelin” on Saturday June 4, 2011 at 8pm, and a return visit by k.d. lang with her new band, the Siss Boom Bang, on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 7:30pm. Tickets to both shows go on sale to Music Hall members noon Tuesday March 15, and to the public at noon Tuesday March 29.
According to Patricia Lynch, Music Hall executive director, “We constantly hear from our patrons that they so appreciate the diversity of programming at The Music Hall. We’ve been watching as Get the Led Out has sold out shows across the country – receiving critical and audience acclaim for their precision in re-creating the Led Zeppelin recorded catalogue. We knew there was an audience here for that level of talent. And, speaking of talent, when k. d. lang appeared here last time, the audience was simply enthralled. Two great shows that are clearly about the diversity here. Don’t miss out – get your tickets now!”
About k. d. lang
Multi-Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter, returns to The Music Hall touring with her new band, The Siss Boom Bang, in support of their soon to be released CD, Sing It Loud, her first record made entirely with a band of her own since the pair of albums with the Reclines that launched her groundbreaking career more than 20 years ago. She has appeared alongside luminaries such as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett. She is renowned for her live shows, prompting the New York Times’ Stephen Holden to observe: “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.”
About Get the Led Out
At sold out shows around the nation, Get the Led Out recreates the mythic career of the legendary British supergroup, Led Zeppelin. The attention to detail and nuance by these six accomplished musicians drive a two hour set of blues-soaked, groove-driven rock anthems, capturing the essence of the band’s hallowed discography.
