For fans who came of age after drummer John Bonham died in 1980, Led Zeppelin can never be experienced live the way it was intended. That's where the planetarium came in.  In 2010 the Hylton Planetarium lured fans into a world normally reserved for star-gazing, where employees beamed laser animations onto a dome ceiling while tunes from bands such as Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and U2 played on the planetarium dome. It wasn't quite the same thing as being at a concert, but it was a step up from lying on the shag carpet in the basement listening to headphones.
