Report: Led Zeppelin To Release 2007 Reunion Gig In November
Industry sources are saying that a Led Zeppelin double-CD / double-DVD of their 2007 reunion show in London will be released in November and titled, Led Zeppelin: Live At London's O2 Arena. On Friday (September 7th), the band posted "hello" on it's Facebook page, followed on Saturday by "Five" in the band's classic font, followed on Sunday by "Four" -- leading some fans to believe that an official announcement is coming on Wednesday (September 12th).
With the entire rock world going insane with "Zeppelin" fever in the weeks and months following the reunion show, Robert Plant -- who was the lone hold-out on any future Zeppelin gigs -- was asked how he stayed calm with all the excitement centered around the band: "Well, I don't think anybody actually asked that question, to be perfectly frank -- apart from the media. So, here I am, just doing what I do."
Jason Bonham, the son of late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who was behind the kit for the performance at London's O2 Arena, told us he's eager to own some sort of document of the event: "I know it probably was recorded, I mean there was cameras there and everything, but I'm not too sure of what the process is there. Me, personally, I'd love to get a, y'know, a version of it that I could -- you know, stay with me forever. It'll be there forever in my mind, but to get a chance to watch it back is sometimes only when you realize what you've done."
Back in 2008, Jimmy Page spoke about the O2 gig to Uncut, saying, "It was recorded, but we didn't go in with the express purpose of making a DVD to come out at Christmas, or whatever. We haven't seen the images or investigated the multi-tracks. It's feasible that it might come out at some distant point, but it'll be a massive job to embark on."
