Until recently, classic rock albums could only be recreated by musical groups with the express written consent of Major League Baseball. Celebrate music and a recent legal victory with today's Groupon to NJPAC Zeppelin Fest, Friday, April 22 at 8 p.m. at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Prudential Hall in Newark. Choose from three seating options:

- For $12, you get a third-tier ticket (a $25 value).
- For $5, you get a fourth-tier ticket (a $10 value).
For more than a decade, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center has attracted diverse performers and audiences to its celebrations of music and dance. The first half of NJPAC Zeppelin Fest will recreate the British blues-rockers' 1973 album Houses of the Holy and 1969 classic Led Zeppelin II, opening uninitiated ears to timeless tunes, such as "Whole Lotta Love" and "The Song Remains the Same," while expanding original Zeppelin fans' appreciations of their favorite songs. Afterwards, the concert will include a set of other Led Zeppelin hits. All songs will be performed using every instrument on the original recordings, including a mandolin with strings composed of Robert Plant's hair, circa 1975.
Ticketholders are invited to enjoy free preshow entertainment provided by The Duo in Prudential Hall lobby, performing classic blues cuts from the 1920s and 1930s.

Inside Prudential Hall, 2,700 seats fill the multitiered auditorium where ballets, symphony orchestras, and Broadway shows flourish beneath radiant lights and a domed ceiling.
