Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin Announce Release Of Reunion Concert Movie


The legendary British rockers Led Zeppelin will be releasing a movie, called 'Celebration Day,' based on their 2007 reunion gig. The news was announced by the Cineworld cinema chain, Reuters reports. The movie will hit cinemas on October 17, 2012 and the band are thought to be preparing a statement, for release later on today (September 13, 2012). Celebration Day is directed by DICk Carruthers and documents the long-awaited reunion gig that Led Zeppelin embarked upon back in 2007.
Led Zeppelin originally split in 1980, following the death of their drummer John Bonham. Fans of the band had been pleading for a reunion for years, but to no avail. There had been fleeting reunions, but nothing substantial. In 2007, the band's singer, Robert Plant and guitarist, Jimmy Page along with the bass player John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham (John's son) made a triumphant return to the live stage, at London's O2 Arena, to play a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records.
The concert is described as "the most over-subscribed in history": a staggering 20 million people applied for just 18,000 tickets "It's a unique opportunity to savor what is likely to be Led Zeppelin's final performance," a statement from Cineworld read. The film is likely to feature footage of the sixteen songs that the band played that night, including some of their biggest global hits, 'A Whole Lotta Love' and 'Stairway To Heaven.'
