Whole Lotta Led will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the birth of Led Zeppelin with a show that will include songs from all of their studio albums, ranging from their beautiful acoustic songs to the huge anthems we have come to know and love. In August 1968, four young musicians convened in a small rehearsal room in London and performed an old Johnny Burnette song, Train Kept A-Rollin’. That was the birth of Led Zeppelin. Little did Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Robert Plant or John Bonham realise at the time what the future held for them but soon they were the biggest band in the world.
