Led Zeppelin's "Celebration Day" Film to Make US TV Debut on AXS TV Next Month

Atlantic/SwanSong/Warner MusicLed Zeppelin fans who are AXS TV subscribers will have extra reason to celebrate this Thanksgiving, as the network will be hosting the U.S. television premiere of the band's 2012 concert film, Celebration Day.  The movie, which documents the legendary British band's historic December 2007 reunion show in London, will debut on Sunday, November 24 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

In addition, AXS TV will show encore screenings of the flick at the same time each night through Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 28.  Celebration Day features Led Zeppelin's three surviving original members -- singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones -- teaming up with late drummer John Bonham's son, Jason, for a memorable career-spanning 16-song set.  Only 18,000 fans were lucky enough to attend the one-off gig, which was held at the O2 Arena.

"Led Zeppelin is such an integral part of the musical landscape and evolution of rock 'n' roll," says AXS TV founder Mark Cuban in a statement.  "Making such a landmark performance accessible to millions of households is one of the ways AXS TV intends to bring music back to television."
