The heavily rumored LED ZEPPELIN live CD/DVD from 2007 is apparently not only coming to DVD, but also movie theaters.
The band has been counting down to an official announcement, which is expected on Thursday, regarding the release of the set.
London's The Sun — which is hardly the most reputable resource for rock release schedules — posted that the concert, which was captured during ZEPPELIN's reunion show on December 10, 2007 at London's O2 Arena, will be released on CD, DVD, and Blu-ray disc on November 22.
Cineplex has revealed its plans to premiere the new package, "Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day", in its theaters on October 17.
Here's the Cineplex description:
"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."
Cineplex lists three dates for the screening on its web site: October 17, 19 and 25.
Yesterday (September 11), LED ZEPPELIN posted the audio introduction from "Good Times, Bad Times" in a YouTube post on its official LED ZEPPELIN Facebook page. The tune served as the opening number for the 2007 one-off reunion.
Jason Bonham, who has officially drummed with LED ZEPPELIN several times, beginning with the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert in 1988, told The Pulse Of Radio at the time that he never assumed that the job of taking over for his father was automatically his. "I had to work at it, really prove that I could do it, and not just say, 'Hey, I'm John Bonham's son, I should be doing it,'" he said. "You've got to earn this, 'cause there's a million drummers out there that would love to cut your throat right now and take over.'"

God dammit, can't we get a fuckin' reunion tour! I would love to see that shit at the Silver Bowl in Las Vegas, I know that it would sell out in seconds, but I would pretty much do anything to experience a live Led Zepplin gig. I'd probably quit my job and follow them around the country, gettin' weird...probably never wear clothes again.
They just said on the news that no less then Bill Clinton tried to get Zep to play for the 121212 concert and they refused. If they wouldn't do that, bye bye Zep .... cr****
If Bill Clinton can't get them to reunite, then who can?!
Seriously sounds like one of the strangest scenarios on Earth: Two rich guys call a guy who was a president to go and talk to some guys who played in a band some 40-50 years ago to get back together.
They just sound like old guys who don't want to do it anymore. Robert Plant is busy at hippie festivals living his golden years with women in their 20s.
noy happeneng fesa, akk if them are dtung
They're my favorite band of all time, but I don't think they will ever reunite again. Especially not for Coachella. But of I'm wrong however, I will be willing to wager a bet....that only pertains to them headlining Coachella in the future.
Does Plant even have the capability of singing these songs anymore?
Vol reminds me of Cloud 9. What ever happened to that dude ? cr****
oh lord, YES!
"Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page both played in The Yardbirds. When Page started Led Zeppelin with Robert Plant, the band was first known as The New Yardbirds. Now it might be Beck’s turn to work with Plant -- he told a Miami radio station they may do something together next year.
Beck says he recently met Plant at a wedding, and Plant suggested they talk. Beck says, “That’s something to look forward to next year.”
Beck is getting ready to start a tour with Brian Wilson on September 27th in Hollywood, Florida, and Plant has hinted at possibly working with Led Zeppelin next year. "
