Mage Music 20: Let's Celebrate!

The O2 concert is coming!

To me, any day I can listen to music of Led Zeppelin – or, more specifically, Jimmy Page – is a Celebration Day, but I've been really, really happy with the news that finally the 2007 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert, featuring a reunited Led Zeppelin (with Bonzo’s son, Jason Bonham, on drums) will be available in movie theaters in October and on DVD in November.

The movie opens on six continents (apparently not in Antarctica) on October 17, 2012 and you can check to see where online at the official Led Zeppelin website. Some locations are already offering tickets – I’m sure that getting them early is a good idea because although there are 1500 theaters world-wide showing Celebration Day, there are millions of Led Zeppelin fans. Just like the O2 show, there will likely be folks who want to get in who won’t be able to get a ticket. Me – well, the nearest theater is a couple hundred miles away so I might have to wait for the DVD.

The DVD (and other formats) is scheduled for release November 19.  I hope I can order in advance.  I'm thinking I might need to order multiple copies, because... well, just because.

Till October – or November – there’s the Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day DVD/movie trailer to tide you over and to whet your appetite.

I’ll be posting info as it I learn of it on a page of its own here on the Mage Music blog that I've created just for that purpose (check out the tab at the top of this page) so it’ll be easy for you to find.  Plus I've posted some stills from the movie trailer.  You might want to bookmark the page.  Heck, it's my own blog and I've bookmarked the page!  CLICK HERE

Future post: I'll be returning to regularly scheduled programming next weekend, I promise!  Meanwhile, use the links below to listen to the studio versions of the setlist for the O2 concert.

  1. Why not give the person who did the stills some credit. A friend's Zeppelin tribute page did these stills, before you posted them here. Rip off. Disgusting.

  2. I'm sorry, I should have been more specific about the images - I captured the stills myself directly from the Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day video. I did not take stills from a Zeppelin tribute page or anyone's website. Given how brief the video is, there are only a limited number of frames suitable for capturing stills from, so naturally everyone who captures them will end up with them looking the same, the only difference being the cropping.

    So I did NOT rip off your friend's Zeppelin tribute page.

    Normally I wouldn't even capture stills from a video, except that in this case the video is a promotion for the movie and the purpose of the stills I created is to promote the movie.

    Thank you for your comments, though. No one likes their images ripped off. I will also change my blog page to make sure it is clear how I obtained those images.
