Could Led Zeppelin's Historic O2 Performance Finally be Making Its way to DVD?

Could Led Zeppelin's Historic O2 Performance Finally be Making Its way to DVD?

On a cold December night in 2007, arguably the greatest rock band ever to grace the planet reformed for one night only for a very special show at the O2 Arena in London.

The show was for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert, held in memory of music exec Ahmet Ertegun, and the band was obviously Led Zeppelin.

Now, 5 years after that iconic performance the millions of Led Zep fans worldwide who never got the chance to see the historic showcase may soon be able to, reports Ultimate Classic Rock.

The co-hosts of 'That Metal Show', Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine recently disclosed that they knew something big was coming from the Led Zep camp this year, and now it would appear that something is a DVD & CD release of the show. However the site that first broke the news, Belgian classic rock radio station RTBF has removed the original post from their website.

There's been rumours regarding a commercial release for years, but both Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones have admittid that they weren't in any kind of hurry to put something out, 

"It was a special occasion you know and we really wanted that just to be it really," Jones said (quote via Led-Zeppelin.org).

The reunion marked the first full-length by the band concert since the death of drummerJohn Bonham in 1980, with his son, Jason, featured behind the kit.
