The Music of Led Zeppelin & Three Dog Night - 2 New Rock Concerts Announced!
Omaha, NE— The Omaha Symphony is thrilled to announce the addition of two new Special Concerts, Three Dog Night and The Song Remains the Same: The Music of Led Zeppelin—one to the current season and one to the recently announced 2010/11 lineup. Both performances will take place at the Holland Performing Arts Center at 8 p.m. The Led Zeppelin performance is set for Friday, June 11, 2010. Three Dog Night will play with the orchestra on Saturday, February 19, 2011.
The addition of this popular programming makes sense considering recent sales trends. “The success of the Symphony Rocks season over the past two years has helped to expand our audiences. Whether it is a "Music of" concert or an original artist with the orchestra, audiences have embraced the concerts in this series,” said Lex Poppens, vice president of marketing for the Omaha Symphony.
The Song Remains the Same: The Music of Led Zeppelin combines the power of legendary hits and live orchestra. Audiences can expect to hear hits like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Kashmir,” and “Black Dog,” and enjoy an evening of hard rock and electric energy. Tickets for this show will go on sale, starting Friday, April 23.
Three Dog Night—the 1970s radio sensation—will bring its popular rocks hits to the Holland. Audiences will enjoy upbeat classics like “Joy To The World, “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” and “Old Fashioned Love Song”. This incredible live band performed to a sold out crowd during the symphony’s 2002/03 season. Season ticket holders can purchase these now; they’ll go on sale to single ticket buyers in August.
