Led Zeppelin reunion? Well not quite. However it was announced today that the legendary British rock gods will be releasing a concert film of the one-off reunion show they did perform back in 2007.
The film, which is set to be titled Celebration Day, captures the band’s set from a tribute concert for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun that took place at the O2 Arena in London five years ago.
The concert was the first performance by Led Zeppelin in 27 years and featured founding members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones, along with drummer Jason Bonham, son of late Zep drummer Jon Bonham. The band performed 16 songs that night including such rock classics as “Stairway to Heaven,” “Dazed and Confused,” and “Whole Lotta Love.”
While there were only 18,000 tickets available for the O2 performance, more than 20 million people applied; making it the most over-subscribed concert in the history of rock.
Celebration Day, which was directed by notable rock documentarian Dick Carruthers, hits theaters on October 17 and will play on some 1500 screens in 40 different territories. Premiers are set for London, Los Angeles, and New York among other cities.
The film will be made available across additional audio and video formats on November 19.
