Led Zeppelin Took Two Years to Watch O2 Arena Concert
On the 27th December 2007 one of the greatest UK rock
bands of all time reunited for a one-off tribute concert in honour
of Ahmet Ertegün at The O2 Arena in London.
Considered one of the biggest reunion shows of all time, the gig
still holds the world record for the 'Highest Demand for
Tickets for One Music Concert,' according to the Guinness Book
However, whilst many of us have wated the best part of five years
for an official DVD announcement, Led Zeppelin's
Jimmy Page has revealed it took two years before he,
Robert Plant & John Paul Jones got together
to watch the footage.
Speaking to NME at the
London premiere of Celebration Day, Page
"It was important that if we were going to do [a reunion] at
all, that we went out there and did it properly. We put a lot of
time and effort into it so that it would be what you're going to
see now, which is just one show - that's all we did, no warm-up
gigs, no follow-up. It wasn't designed to be a film at all. That's
why it's taken a little while to come out, because we didn't even
look at it for two years after we'd done it, so we could be a bit
more objective about it."
Celebration Day will be screened in cinemas from
October 17. It will then receive a general DVD release on November
19. A deluxe edition will also include footage of the Shepperton
rehearsals, as well as BBC news footage.
