Tribute acts are a wonderful way for a musician to pay homage to their idols, as well as a way for the audience to experience the works of a superstar who they may never get a chance to see live.

Tribute acts across the UK range from those who are sadly deceased, bands or artists that no longer perform, or superstars that are just too expensive for some of us to go and see.
