Led Zeppelin held a press conference in London this afternoon to launch their Celebration Day movie/DVD. Classic Rock was there – and we recorded the conference for posterity.
Zep will release the movie of their 2007 reunion show under the title Celebration Day on DVD and as a cinema feature.
The 2hr4min production will play in selected theatres across the world on October 17 following premieres in London, New York, Los Angeles and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings are available via LedZeppelin.com.
Celebration Day will then go on sale in video and audio formats on November 19.
Over 20 million people applied for 18,000 tickets when Led Zeppelin announced they’d play London’s O2 Arena to celebrate the life of Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun.
Drummer John Bonham’s son Jason performed with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, leading to plans for further shows together, which then ground to a halt when frontman Plant decided not to remain involved.
Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones were all present at this afternoon’s press conference at the posh 8 Northumberland Avenue Hotel in Charing Cross, London. Listen to the events unfold below. Read a full transcript of the conversation and see a clip from the movie.
