Led Zeppelin Members Attend "Celebration Day" Screening in London; No Comment About Future Reunions

Dave J Hogan/Getty ImagesLed Zeppelin's three surviving members gathered in London on Friday for a special screening of Celebration Day, the new concert film showcasing the band's December 2007 reunion concert at the O2 Arena in the U.K. capital.  After the film was shown, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones participated in a Q&A with the media.  Not surprisingly, they were asked if they would consider performing together again, but the rock legends side-stepped the question.

Page answered the query with a question of his own, "Can I just ask you all if you enjoyed the film?"  Plant added that answering the reunion question "would be kiss and tell."

Page also took time to praise the performance of drummer Jason Bonham, who filled in for his late father, founding Zeppelin member John Bonham, at the 2007 concert.  "[Jason was] absolutely monumental," Page declared.  "Nobody else could have done it."

Celebration Day will be screened in about 1,500 cinemas on October 17 after gala premieres are held in several locations, including London, New York City and Los Angeles.  On November 19, the concert will get a retail release in multiple video and audio formats.

Details have just been revealed about the different versions of Celebration Day that will be available. They include:

  • standard one-DVD/two-CD and one-Blu-ray/two-CD sets.
  • deluxe two-DVD/two-CD and one-Blu-ray/two-DVD/two-CD sets offering exclusive bonus footage.
  • an audio-only two-CD set.
  • a high-fidelity audio-only edition on a Blu-ray disc.
  • a three-LP, audiophile-quality vinyl set.
  • a digital download of the concert audio.
