AXS TV to honor 50 years of Led Zeppelin with Tuesday tributes in September

AXS TV proudly celebrates Led Zeppelin’s 50th-anniversary milestone with a month-long programming lineup dedicated to the iconic British rockers this September. Coverage includes an electrifying list of classic concerts, insightful interviews and captivating documentaries every Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, starting Sept. 4. A Saturday Stack marathon on Sept. 29 will close out the special event.

Led Zeppelin played their first gig on Sept. 7, 1968, under a different name and that show unwittingly spawned what was to become one of the biggest rock bands in music history. AXS TV’s Tuesday night tributes begin on Sept. 4 with the critically-acclaimed 2008 rock doc “It Might Get Loud” which features guitar guru Jimmy Page discussing his legendary trade. The groundbreaking 1976 concert film “Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same” follows on Sept. 11. The film features a rare inside look at the band via concert footage and unique fantasy sequences spotlighting individual band members.

“It Might Get Loud” returns for an encore on Sept. 18 then iconic frontman Robert Plant sits down with award-winning newsman Dan Rather to discuss his childhood, musical influences and prolific career on “The Big Interview” on Sept. 25. Plant gives a rare glimpse of moments that shaped his legacy as one of the biggest rock stars on the planet in his candid conversation with Rather.

The month-long celebration closes out on Sept. 29 with a day-long “Saturday Stack” marathon which starts at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT by following Robert Plant to Chicago in “Robert Plant & The Strange Sensation.” A Robert Plant “Big Interview” reprisal follows at 2 p.m. ET, along with more documentaries and concert films as listed below.
