Classic Albums Live

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin I

Remember when you used to listen to an entire album from start to finish? When flipping the vinyl was a cherished ritual of music appreciation? Arts Commons Presents and Classic Albums Live do.   

Led Zeppelin took the rock & roll made popular by The Beatles and infused the genre with psychedelic blues and an edge that influenced generations of hard rock and heavy metal musicians. Zeppelin’s debut album made waves in the landscape of late 60s, early 70s music, the rare case when every song is a masterpiece. From Robert Plant's classic howl on Babe I’m Gonna Leave You to Jimmy Page’s ecstatic guitar on Communication Breakdown, it was unlike anything that had come before and still stands alone for its boldness. Join Arts Commons Presents and Classic Albums Live for Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin Ia night of classic rock from the band that started it all. 

Classic Albums Live is a listening party that evokes your love for your favourite albums – live and in person. Founded by Craig Martin in 2003, Classic Albums Live recreates each album note for note, cut for cut, with some of Canada’s best musicians. After three seasons of bringing Classic  Albums Live to Calgary music lovers, Arts Commons Presents once again brings you back in time to hear your favourite songs just like new. 

Due to changes in the COVID-19 pandemic, this performance will be proceeding with increased health and safety measures.

“I love this record. I love what it means sonically and historically.  This is the record that changed guitar rock forever.”
