Led Zeppelin to stream Celebration Day reunion concert

Led Zeppelin will stream their 2007 reunion concert film, “Celebration Day”, online for a limited-time, starting this weekend.

Premiering Saturday, May 30 at 8PM GMT | 3PM ET | 12PM PST, the video will be streamed in its entirely for three days only on the official Led Zeppelin YouTube channel.

“Celebration Day” captures a reunited Led Zeppelin in concert at London’s O2 Arena on December 10, 2007, when they headlined a tribute concert for friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

The rare live appearance – which featured Jason Bonham behind the drums in place of his late father John – saw 20 million people apply for tickets through a worldwide lottery to the band’s first headline show in 27 years, which took place before 18,000 ticket holders at the London venue.

“Celebration Day” won Led Zeppelin a 2014 Grammy Award in the Best Rock Album category, while a second nomination – for “Kashmir” in the Best Rock Performance category – lost out “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons.
