Led Zeppelin fans can finally relive the band’s 2007 reunion concert
One of Led Zeppelin‘s acclaimed concert films is coming to a personal screen near you.
“Celebration Day,” the live document of the band’s 2007 historic performance, will stream exclusively on YouTube for three days beginning Saturday.
After a nearly 30-year hiatus, the surviving founding members of Led Zeppelin reunited to play London’s O2 arena on Dec. 10, 2007, for a wildly anticipated show.
Millions of people applied for tickets through a worldwide lottery to witness Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, the son of late drummer John Bonham, perform a tribute concert for their friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, who died in 2006.
Spanning 16 songs over more than two hours, the show included performances of the group’s hits “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” “Black Dog” and “Stairway To Heaven.” The film and audio were released in 2012 and won the band a Grammy for best rock album in 2014. Its rendition of “Kashmir” featured on the album was a nominee for best rock performance at the Grammys that same year.
Led Zeppelin formed in London in 1968 and became one of the most influential and successful rock groups in modern music, selling hundreds of millions of albums. It disbanded in 1980 not long after John Bonham’s death.
“Celebration Day” premieres at noon Pacific on Saturday and will be available until June 2 on Led Zeppelin’s official YouTube channel.
