City Slang: DSO to pay tribute to Led Zeppelin



On Friday, January 17 and Saturday, January 18, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will pay tribute to British hard rock legends Led Zeppelin.

Brent Havens will be the conductor and Randy Jackson the vocalist. We’re guessing that’s not the Randy Jackson of the Jacksons, or even of America Idol.

They say, “The rock. The sound. The music of Led Zeppelin. A special tribute performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, backed by a full rock band. Hit after “Stairway to Heaven” hit from one of music’s most powerful super-groups.”

Doors are at 8 p.m. and tickets start at $19.
