The Album: Led Zeppelin IV

Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, often referred to simply as Led Zeppelin IV, was released on November 8, 1971. Produced by the band’s guitarist Jimmy Page and recorded between December 1970 and February 1971, primarily at the country house Headley Grange, the album is a masterclass in rock music. It features iconic tracks such as the eight-minute epic “Stairway to Heaven,” “Going to California,” “Black Dog,” and “Rock and Roll.”

ARC will perform Led Zeppelin IV in its entirety, bringing every note and nuance of the album to life. The concert will start with the full album played from start to finish, capturing the essence of the original recording. Following this, ARC will dive into a second set filled with fan favorites and classics from Led Zeppelin’s extensive catalogue, promising an unforgettable night of rock.

Each performance has showcased their ability to not only play these classic albums but to breathe new life into them, offering audiences a fresh yet faithful experience.
