Led Zeppelin Make Appearance at ‘Celebration Day’ Screening, Won’t Rule Out Future Shows
Earlier today, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin made a rare public appearance at the first screening of their upcoming film, Celebration Day, which chronicles their 2007 reunion show at London’s 02 Arena.
Taking questions from press after the screening, the band were asked from numerous angles if they would ever consider playing together again. In typically evasive fashion, Jimmy Page merely asked, “Can I just ask you all if you enjoyed the film?” When asked the same question, Robert Plant answered, “That would be kiss and tell.”
Celebration Day will see a limited theatrical release on 1,500 screens on October 17, while a physical release of “multiple video and audio formats” is due out November 19 via Swan Song/Atlantic Records.
Watch the official Celebration Day trailer, followed by the band’s performance of “Black Dog” from the DVD:
Over the past 20 years, Brad Tolinski, editorial director of Guitar World, Revolver and Guitar Aficionado magazines, has interviewed guitarist Jimmy Page more than any other journalist in the world. Those interviews have led to a new book, Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page (Crown Publishing), which will be published October 23. Click here for more info.
