IT'S A big week for music at the Palace Theatre in Paignton, with three big shows taking to the stage over the next few days.

On the bill is one of the biggest stars of the Sixties and Seventies plus two top tribute acts.

Tonight's the night for the 'World's Greatest Michael Jackson Tribute Concert', which has been selling out in venues up and down the country and is being described as 'the hottest tribute show in Europe'.

Fronted by one of the USA's leading Michael Jackson tribute artists, along with a live band and dance troupe, this production features spectacular costume changes, mesmerising routines and all your favourite hits including the early Jackson 5 classics and mega hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal.

Tomorrow the stage belongs to Whole Lotta Led, who are now considered to be one of the greatest tributes to Led Zeppelin around.

Generally playing two-and-a-half hour sets and more than 100 concerts a year, their enthusiasm on stage is unequalled.

They don't try to reproduce what the Classic Led Zeppelin line-up looked like, because they say it's all about the music.

Tuesday night sees Georgie Fame on stage in person, visiting the Palace once again.

Throughout his 40-year career, Georgie has recorded more than 20 albums and 14 hit singles.

He is equally at home in the company of jazz groups and big bands, orchestras, rock groups and his own band, The Blue Flames.

As a sideman, he has recorded with artists including Gene Vincent, Prince Buster, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Joan Armatrading, Andy Fairweather-Low, Bill Wyman and Van Morrison.
