Led Zeppelin Announces The Coming Of 'Celebration Day'
As expected, Led Zeppelin's December 10th, 2007 reunion show at London's O2 Arena -- now named Celebration Day -- will be released on CD, DVD, Blu-ray disc -- with a one-night only theatrical run planned. Vintage Vinyl News reported that the film will get premiere showings in New York, Los Angeles, London, and other major cities -- with some featuring members of the band. A screening of "over 1,500 screens in over 40 territories" is set for October 17th. The CD/DVD/Blue-ray discs of Celebration Day will be released on November 19th through Swan Song/Atlantic Records.
 
Paul Rodgers, who performed at the show as one of Zeppelin's opening acts, told us that he credits the band for giving Bad Company the break they desperately needed in the early '70s: "I'm a huge fan of Zeppelin and of Jimmy Page, and I'm also very grateful; to them, because it was their management -- Pete Grant -- that took us on board, and it was their decision for that to happen, 'cause Swan Song was their company. So I was always grateful to them for giving us that fantastic opportunity, really. And I think a lot of the initial interest for Bad Company was 'This is Led Zeppelin approved -- let's check it out.' Y'know, so there was a certain. . . there was definitely a lot of cache for that."
 
Todd Rundgren who performed at Britain's legendary Knebworth festival along with Zeppelin back in 1979, said that he doesn't blame Robert Plant for shying away from another reunion and trying to duplicate his vocals from 35 or 40 years ago: "Robert Plant will probably always have a gig somewhere. And the only reason for him to reunite with the Led Zeppelin thing is because it would just be huge money involved, I guess. But he has an opportunity to play music that he feels like. Some music that he may feel actually more akin to than what he's, I guess 'obligated' to do (laughs) at this point with Led Zeppelin. Everything that he did after he left Led Zeppelin was an octave lower (than the Zeppelin songs). (Laughs) And now he's got to go back and sing and scream at the top of his lungs."
