Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day Only In Theaters Oct. 17

Posted October 15, 2012 in

Celebration Day is the opportunity I’ve waited for since falling in love with Led Zeppelin back in high school: a chance to see them live! Holy mother of love, Jimmy fuckin’ Page! The mere fact that you get to see guitar god Jimmy Page do what he does best is alone enough to see the film! With all surviving members but one, late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham who is succeeded by his son, Jason Bonham, the band takes to the stage at London’s O2 arena back in December 2007. The concert film features a sixteen-track set list of the Hall of Famer’s most popular songs, as well as some of their most profound tracks. The set list included infamous tracks like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Dazed and Confused” and my personal favorite, “Rock and Roll.” Some of the more somber tracks that helped even out the concert were “The Song Remains the Same,” “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” and “In My Time of Dying.” Only available on the big screen for one day, Oct. 17, the two-hour film directed by concert veteran Dan Carruthers, Celebration Day is the last chance to see Led Zeppelin live, since there’s no hint of a reunion tour anytime soon. As a huge fan, Celebration Day was absolutely brilliant, and getting to hear them that loud on the big silver screen made me feel like I was there. As a younger fan, I never had the opportunity to see the band live, and getting to experience Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page together is something I’ll never forget!
