So the waiting is over.
We’ve held our breath as the countdown has continued.
And now it’s official.
Led Zeppelin’s 2007 reunion gig at London’s 02 Arena is finally to be released on DVD.
But first there’ll be special screenings in selected cinemas around the world.
The film of Celebration Day has a worldwide theatrical release by Omniverse Vision on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17.
The theatrical screenings will follow premieres in London, Los Angeles, New York, and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings are available from today via www.ledzeppelin.com

It was on December 10, 2007 that Zeppelin took the stage at the 02 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.
Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, son of late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalogue.
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.
