Been A Long Time Since…Well, You Know
Fathom Events have announced the dates and theaters for the limited theatrical run of Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day, a concert film recorded when former Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones reunited for a one-off gig at London’s O2 Arena on December 10, 2007.
It was the first full show the threesome had played since the Zeppelin played the Eissporthalle in Berlin, Germany on July 7, 1980, the final show of their Tour Over Europe and the last before drummer John Bonham died on September 25, 1980. While the three have played together on rare occasions since then — including at Live Aid in 1985, and when they jammed at the 1995 Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony — the O2 show was their first full gig since 1980.
The screenings will be held on October 17 and 18.

If you’re busy those night, however, don’t sweat it too much, as the concert will be released on CD, DVD, and Blu-ray on November 19.
