Classic Albums Live | Led Zeppelin: Houses of the Holy

Thursday, 19 October 2023 - Recorded at the pinnacle of Led Zeppelin’s career, Houses of the Holy is an incomparable musical feat that taps into the spiritual core of the rock concert experience. Recognized on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, Led Zeppelin’s experimental album blends blues, funk, reggae, and doo-wop to create a work that transcends traditional rock and roll. It is the first of the band’s albums to be comprised entirely of original material, despite being their fifth studio album, with lyrics inspired by the band’s world travel. In their celebrated format, witness the Classic Albums Live band of all-star musicians from Canada and the U.S. recreate Houses of the Holy in perfect detail – note for note, cut for cut – before playing more chart-topping hits from Led Zeppelin’s repertoire. Featuring hits including “D’yer Mak’er” and “The Song Remains the Same,” this is the ultimate Classic Albums Live experience with Arts Commons Presents – a transformative live celebration of one of the world’s greatest rock bands on the epic Jack Singer Concert Hall stage at Arts Commons. - Event Details
