Wonder Twin powers activate, in the form of legendary rock stars, shape of the world-class Columbus Commons.

The sounds of Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd are set to rock the house at Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion at the Columbus Commons, and you are going to want to capture the screaming good time.

Right around the corner on July 7, the Columbus Symphony, yes the symphony, will perform The Music of Led Zeppelin at the Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion.

Amplified by a full rock band and accompanied by singer Randy Jackson’s screaming vocals, creator Brent Havens guest conducts the orchestra as it captures Led Zeppelin’s “sheer blast and power” riff-for-riff while churning out new musical colors.

“My concept for The Music of Led Zeppelin was to take the music as close to the originals as we could and then add some colors to enhance what Zep had done,” said Havens. “The wonderful thing with an orchestra is that you have an entire palette to call upon. The band is reproducing what Led Zeppelin did on the albums, verbatim, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music a richness, a whole different feel, a whole different sense of power.”
