The White – An Evening Of Led Zeppelin
Formed by Michael White in 1977, ‘The White’ were the first musical group to be known as a ‘tribute band’. The White has performed over 8000 shows worldwide to over a million fans.
In 1983, Michael met with Robert Plant while Robert was on tour. Plant was familiar with The White and actually wore a ‘The White’ T-shirt on stage at one of his shows and posed wearing it in Cream magazine. Plant changed the course of White’s life connecting him with the head of Atlantic records. As a result, White signed a $350,000 recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1985.
