A few weeks ago, Train revealed that they’d recorded their version of Led Zeppelin’s classic album Led Zeppelin II in its entirety, and then performed it live on their annual fan cruise. They also hinted that they might do it again on dry land. Now it’s happening.
The band has joined the lineup for the 2016 Mountain Jam festival in Hunter Mountain, New York, announcing they’ll perform the entire Led Zeppelin II album on Thursday, June 2, the first night of the four-day event.
In a statement, Train said, “Wanting to honor our favorite band, we decided to record our favorite Led Zeppelin record. Being able to perform it live is the ultimate feeling for us as fans.”
Train has performed Zeppelin II songs such as “Ramble On” and “What Is and What Should Never Be” on and off in concert for years, since singer Pat Monahan is able to hit the notes Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant does in the originals. However, this is the first time fans will also get to hear Train do an entire Zeppelin set, which will also include classics like “Whole Lotta Love,” “Thank You,” “Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid,” “The Lemon Song,” and “Moby Dick.”
