Led Zeppelin Announce 2007 Reunion Concert Theatrical Release

After a week of cautious pessimism, masters and forbears of hard rock (and music in general) Led Zeppelin, have announced a cinema release of their fabled 2007 one-off reunion at London’s O2 Arena. The film will be entitled Celebration Day, and will by flying to screens after a worldwide release on October 17th, roughly five years after the event took place.

 

Screening in over 40 territories, on 1,500 screens, to a hell of a lot of fans wishing they could be there live, and should do something to satisfy the 19,982,000 people who applied for tickets in 2007, but didn’t make it. That’s half of England, or all of Beijing – the kind of statistics that make you glad that people still appreciate amazing music (but terrible for anyone organising seating).

The news comes after the band’s posting of a tantalizing, week-long countdown on their official Facebook page, consisting of stylised numbers, videos of screaming crowds and more than one instance of me wetting myself as I tried really hard not to get too excited.

A tour was speculated, but most knew that this was almost entirely out of the question. Speaking on the idea, frontman Robert Plant has stated: “It’s a bit of a pain in the pisser, to be honest. Who cares? I know people care, but think about it from my angle. Soon I’m going to need help crossing the street.”

We’ll take that as a ‘no’ then.

The concert will be released in audio format in November, with the following tracklist:

1. Good Times Bad Times

2. Ramble On

3. Black Dog

4. In My Time Of Dying

5. For Your Life

6. Trampled Under Foot

7. Nobody’s Fault But Mine

8. No Quarter

9. Since I’ve Been Loving You

10. Dazed And Confused

16. Rock And Roll
