CLARKSTON (WWJ) –Imagine listening to the powerful hits of Led Zeppelin, such as “Stairway to Heaven” and “Black Dog,” performed by a 50-piece orchestra AND a full rock band.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to experience “The Music Of Led Zeppelin: A Rock Symphony,” tonight’s your chance. For the seventh time in the past eight years, this musical extravaganza will be performed at the DTE Energy Music Theatre. In addition to the legendary music of Led Zeppelin, the rock symphony will feature a stunning, state-of-the-art light show.
