Led Zeppelin is among the greats receiving a special salute at this year’s Kennedy Center Honors gala. Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson and drummer Jason Bonham, the son of Zeppelin’s late drummer John Bonham, rock the Kennedy Center Opera House to pay tribute to the band with a performance of the classic “Stairway To Heaven.” Lenny Kravitz, the Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, and Jack Black also contribute to the Zeppelin salute.
Bonnie Raitt and Jeff Beck are also on hand, joining Morgan Freeman, Tracy Chapman, and Gary Clark, Jr. in honoring blues great Buddy Guy.
Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Ray Romano, and Jimmy Kimmel are among those who pay tribute to David Letterman.
Robert De Niro helps recognize Dustin Hoffman.
The concert event was taped in Washington, DC earlier this month to cap off two days of festivities recognizing the Honorees. The guests of honor watched the show with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama from the Presidential Box. Highlights from the 35th annual Kennedy Center Honors will air as a special on CBS tonight.
