Led Zeppelin Reunion?

Posted 22 Sep 2012 in Featured, General News, Music, News, Performance

Led Zeppelin, one of the most influential bands of all time have reunited….ok…I know that is kind of misleading but the surviving members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones did get back together to hold a press conference to talk about their upcoming DVD entitled Celebration Day. 

Led Zeppelin Celebration Day

Celebration Day was filmed back in 2007 as the mighty Led Zeppelin got back together to perform at the O2 Arena in London.  Celebration Day was performed in memory of Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records.  Ertegun was the one who signed Led Zeppelin to his label in 1968 and was known to mention that signing the future legends was his finest signing. Ummm yeah….that’s a pretty good band to bring to your label.

The DVD is scheduled to be released November 16th to the masses of Led Zep fans who have been dying for anything from the band for years.  So even tho many were disappointed that Led Zeppelin didn’t call the press conference to announce a new tour at least we’ll have some new concert footage to watch and listen to.  It’s also pretty cool to see Jason Bonham, the son of original drummer John Bonham, pound the drums with his dad’s famous group.

Plant, Page and Jones wouldn’t give in to the endless questions from the media regarding if they had any plans to go on tour or at least do a few one-off shows.  After years of hearing that particular question asked in a zillion different ways the members of Led Zeppelin have been able to hone their skills on how to avoid answering and still manage to have some fun with the media.  Billboard reported that one media member asked the band “Will you do it again” (referring to a tour).  Plant was quick to respond “With you?”

Its good to see that they have a sense of humor about touring….or not touring, even if the announcement of a Led Zeppelin reunion tour would send millions of fans into a frenzy.  Could you imagine what the audience at a 2012 Zeppelin show would look like?  You’d have multiple generations of people in the crowd….and everyone would be loving it!

Over the last few years Jimmy Page seems to be the most active and public member of the reclusive group.  He and John Paul Jones showed up when the Foo Fighters played Wembley a few years back.  More recently you can see Page showing off the skills that made him one of the most popular rock guitarists of all time in the film It Might Get Loud which chronicles an extremely cool day of discussion and technique between Jimmy Page, Jack White and The Edge.  You should definitely check out both the Foo Fighters Wembley Stadium gig as well as It Might Get Loud.  In both films you can see that Page still really loves music and everything involved with creating it.

The track listing for Celebration Day runs through 16 incredible Led Zeppelin tunes.  We can’t wait to see this one hit the shelves.

1 Good Times Bad Times
2 Ramble On
3 Black Dog
4 In My Time of Dying
5 For Your Life
6 Trampled Under Foot

For now we’ll leave you with the Celebration Day trailer.  Enjoy!

    I totally agree Rhonda! I’ve seen most of the ‘Legends of Music’ but one of the groups that I never had the chance to see was Led Zeppelin. Hopefully they will hit the road. I’d travel to see them.
