Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin: Sell Out Tours To Box Office Smash?


A Led Zeppelin film featuring their one off reunion concert at London’s 02 arena is set for a cinematic release, reports The Associated Press.

The gig, performed in 2007 as a tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, was enjoyed by around 18,000 dedicated fans, who were lucky enough to see the band’s last live headline act, but for those who didn’t make it – and there were about 20 million that wanted to – there’s now a chance to see previously unseen footage on the big screen. The band announced that Celebration Day will get a worldwide theatrical release on October 17th, followed by "multiple video and audio" formats on November 19th. Speculation had been rife amongst fans given that a countdown appeared on the band’s Facebook page, but, to many fans consternation, a full reunion is not on the cards. They’ll just have to make do with the film.

Following their initial split in 1980 – the death of drummer John Bonham being the reason – the band’s reputation took a nosedive before Jimmy Page spearheaded a two-decade period of reissues and re-masters to remind the public how important they are to rock music. This will be the third incarnation of Led Zeppelin’s on screen presence; in 2003 the band released a 2-disc DVD chronicling their live career, and in 2007 a DVD of their concert film The Song Remains the Same became available.
