Music can soothe a fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one reserved ticket to the WMMR Halloween Creep Show: Starring Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience at the Tower Theatre on Saturday, October 29, at 8 p.m. (up to a $30.93 value, including ticketing fees). Reserved seating is located in the loge and orchestra sections.
Jason Bonham, heir to the mighty drum throne of Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham, honors the power and legacy of his father’s music with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. Born with the genetic predisposition to make thunder weep with the twirl of a drumstick, Jason has valiantly banged the skins along with his dad’s Zepmates on the band's ninth album and at subsequent reunion shows. While the band blows the minds of lifetime Led zealots and born-too-late fans, the stage erupts in a phantasmagoria of archival video unearthed from Led Zeppelin’s storied Netflix queue.
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
