Led Zeppelin’s 2007 Reunion Show Coming To The Big Screen

Written by Marc Zanotti on September 13, 2012

The clock struck ‘1’ about 10 hours ago on Led Zeppelin’s Facebook page, meaning the mysterious countdown has reached its conclusion. Around 5 hours ago, Zep posted a YouTube clip of the band’s 1970 number Celebration Day, and according to Blabbermouth, it’s all for the impending release of Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day.

Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day is a live CD/DVD captured during the band’s reunion gig in 2007, which was part of a tribute concert to the band’s close friend, Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. Blabbermouth has reported that London’s The Sun, who often quote unidentified sources, have suggested a release date of November 22, 2012 for the CD, DVD and Blue-ray.

However, what is for certain is that Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day will be coming to the big screen thanks to Canadian company Cineplex, who plan to premiere the live recording on October 17 and replay the film on October 19 and October 25.

Here’s what Cineplex have written about the screening;

On December 10, 2007, LED ZEPPELIN took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ‘n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of LED ZEPPELIN.

Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalogue, including landmark tracks ‘Whole Lotta Love’, ‘Rock and Roll’, ‘Kashmir’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven’.

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.

Now, for the first time, fans in over 40 territories worldwide will be able to get a front row seat to experience this historic event in glorious high definition and incredible surround sound. Experience it on the big screen for a strictly limited period only.

There is no word yet if Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day will have a cinematic release in Australia.
