Rumours continue regarding the anticipated announcement expected later this week by Led Zeppelin.
All signs point to the band revealing plans to release their December 2007 show at London's O2 Arena this fall.
The reunion marked the first full-length by the band concert since the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, with his son, Jason, featured behind the kit.
Now, UK tabloid The Sun reports that a source has revealed some inside news, including the planned release date.
“Jimmy [Page] has been in the studio making sure everything is perfect,” a source tells The Sun. “The band want it to remain true to their exceptionally high standards. It’s coming out on November 22 as part of a simultaneous global release.”
The unnamed source’s November 22nd release date would be unusual for a new entertainment product since it’s a Thursday – music is traditionally released on Mondays in Europe and Tuesdays in North America – so if the rumor is correct, it suggests that Zeppelin would issue their new package on a single, stand-alone date which coincides with the U.S. Thanksgiving Day holiday.
