Led Zeppelin to attend Celebration Day premieres

Led Zeppelin members will be attending two special premiere screenings of their new film, “Celebration Day.”

The movie, which documents the band’s 2007 concert at London’s O2 Arena, will make its U.S. debut at the historic Ziegfeld Theater in New York’s theater district on October 9.

Prior to the premiere, founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant will be joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a press conference at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

“Celebration Day” will then have its U.K. premiere at London’s legendary Hammersmith Apollo on October 12. Jones, Page, and Plant will also be attendance for this special event and a limited number of tickets will be made available to fans for £20.

Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena on December 10, 2007 to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin.

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.

“Celebration Day” will see a worldwide theatrical release on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17 before it goes on sale November 19.

Check out a preview clip of “Black Dog” from the DVD here.
