Led Zeppelin Event Coming To Movie Theaters

(hennemusic) A compilation of live Led Zeppelin performances will be screened in US theaters on March 30th as the legendary band continued their extensive reissues series with last week's expanded reissue of their 1975 release, "Physical Graffiti." The second evening in the Fathom Events Classic Music Series - the first featured the premiere of "Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014" last week - will deliver footage of Led Zeppelin live performances from two previously released sources: 1976's "The Song Remains The Same" concert film and the 2003 "Led Zeppelin" DVD. Fathom Events have pulled clips of the band at London's Royal Albert Hall in January 1970, their July 1973 shows at New York's Madison Square Garden, their five-night run at London's Earl's Court in May 1975, and their two performances at England's Knebworth Festival in August 1979.

Aerosmith Members Wants To Play Entire Classic Album Live

(Gibson) At least one member of Aerosmith would relish the prospect of performing one of the band's classic albums in its entirety at a concert as a special treat to fans. "I've wanted to do that for a long time," says Brad Whitford, speaking recently to Gibson.com. "We attempted to do it once, but it didn't work out-the band didn't feel strongly enough about the way the audience was responding to it. But I think that idea might be worthy of a special treatment, maybe in smaller theaters around the country." Whitford went on to suggest the band could perform 1975's Toys in the Attic and 1976's Rocks back to back, playing the songs in the same sequence as they appear on the albums. "We could also bring in some of our favorite friends and artists to join us-someone like Slash, for instance," he added. "That would really be fun."

Older Artists Selling More Music?

(Classic Rock) Music appears to be becoming an old person's game as it has been revealed that the average age of the ten best-selling artists of last year was 38. Only four of them, all pop acts, were aged 25 or under in 2014, with three in their 30s and one each in their 50s, 60s and even 70s. The balance was heavily swayed by rock bands - AC/DC were the fifth best-selling band of the year, with an average age of 60, while Pink Floyd, at number seven, averaged 70 years old. And 'king of pop' Michael Jackson, at number six, would have been 56 if he hadn't died in 2009. The information, sourced from the IFPI Global Record Artist Chart, was revealed by Music Business Worldwide, who comment: "Thought pop was music made for teenagers, by teenagers? Not any more."
