Led Zeppelin O2 Arena show comes to DVD!

At long last, Led Zeppelin’s 2007 reunion show at London’s O2 Arena is being released! It’ll be screened in cinemas in October and will arrive as a home release in November.

I’m really stoked about this one. Robert Plant is one of my favourite singers. But not just any Robert Plant: specifically 1990s-and-onwards Plant, when his voice seemed to take on even more gravity and gravel.

Here’s the press release:

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 ofLed 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 catalog including landmark tracks Whole Lotta LoveRock And RollKashmir, 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.

The film of Celebration Day will see a worldwide theatrical release by Omniverse Vision on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17. The theatrical screenings will follow premieres in London, Los Angeles, New York, Sydney and other major cities. Tickets will be available on September 13 via ledzeppelin.com

Celebration Day will then be available in multiple video and audio formats on November 16 from Swan Song/Atlantic Records. Specific product details will be announced soon.

Led Zeppelin has also been selected as one of the recipients of the 2012 Kennedy Centre Honours. The band is set to receive the Honours at the annual gala on December 2 in Washington, DC.
