It's been nearly 50 years since Led Zeppelin gave its first proper performance. Once hailed “the biggest band in the world,” the progenitor of hard rock has continued to shape the future of rock ’n’ roll long after its disbandment following drummer John Bonham’s death in 1980. To celebrate the anniversary, swagger will meet sophistication when the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will take on the many hits of Zeppelin. With “Stairway to Heaven,” “Kashmir,” “Black Dog,” and “Immigrant Song,” the DSO will look to conductor Brent Havens, who will be joined by a full rock band (fronted by Randy Jackson of Zebra) to bring Led Zeppelin’s classic catalog to new heights.
