Every year impresario Michael Dorf assembles an eclectic lineup to honor a musical legend or band at Carnegie Hall in New York City. The 2018 honorees will be iconic rockers Led Zeppelin. Dorf has announced The Music Of Led Zeppelin, which will be held on March 7.
The initial lineup for the event will be revealed soon. Look for 21 musical acts to cover some of Led Zeppelin’s most-beloved songs and perhaps deep cuts. March’s concert will be Dorf’s 15th annual tribute concert held at Carnegie Hall, with 100% of the net proceeds given to music education organizations for underprivileged youth. Michael Dorf previously announced that over 1.3 million net dollars has been raised by the series through early 2017. Past benefits honored the music of Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, David Byrne, Paul Simon, Prince, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, R.E.M., Neil Young, The Rolling Stones and others.
VIP Packages are available via MusicOf.org. Look for general admission tickets to go on sale soon.
