Led Zeppelin rocks ‘Imiloa
Buckle up! The high octane sounds of Led Zeppelin returns to the ‘Imiloa’s Planetarium at 7 p.m. Friday. Ticketing is $10 for non-members, and $8 for members.
The Led Zeppelin show features immersive fulldome video graphics with the combination of Led Zeppelin classics pumping through the ‘Imiloa planetarium’s 10,000 watt 5.1 surround sound system.
“Led Zeppelin fans young and old will love this fulldome Led Zeppelin experience,” said Christopher Phillips, planetarium staffer. “This show brings in the high energy fueled rock ‘n roll of Led Zeppelin like ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ ‘Immigrant Song,’ ‘Kashmir,’ ‘Black Dog,’ ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ and other greats set to immersive CGI effects in a dome environment.”
From surrealistic environments to mood-provoking abstract art, this show puts both a modern and nostalgic spin on the music of one of the best rock bands ever played in planetarium shows. Way beyond “HD,” the fulldome animation created for Led Zeppelin is one of the highest resolution ever made for a digital dome music show.
This show will play on selected Friday nights. Tickets may be purchased at the ‘Imiloa front desk or by calling 969-9703 during regular business hours.
‘Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawaii is located at 600 ‘Imiloa Place in Hilo, off Komohana and Nowelo streets at the UH-Hilo Science and Technology Park. For more information, go to www.imiloahawaii.org, or call 969-9700.
