In the 70’s, the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin shot some of their concert footages in New York’s Madison Square Garden and turned them into a concert film called The Song Remains the Same.
The film was premiered 41 years ago today in New York City where a specially equipped quadraphonic sound system was set up in the cinema. The film performed well at the box office, grossing an estimated $10 million by the next year. However, critics viewed the film negatively.
The film did receive a cult following especially to the fans of the band. It became a favorite at late-night movie houses, and its subsequent release on video and then DVD has ensured a growing base of fans.
When the movie was premiered during a charity night back in 1976. it raised about $25,000 for the Save the Children fund. Watch a clip of the movie below.
