Info for Celebration Day

Recorded at Led Zeppelin's historic 2007 concert at London's O2 in memory of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, this album sees the first full reunion of the surviving members of Led Zeppelin in 27 years. With Jason Bonham filling in for his father, the late, great John Bonham, on drums, Celebration Day features 16 classics from the Led Zeppelin catalog, including 'Stairway to Heaven,' 'Whole Lotta Love,' and 'Kashmir.'

The scramble for tickets for this December 2007 Ahmet Ertegun tribute show virtually caused the Internet to crash. Money on the table for a subsequent reunion tour ran into hundreds of millions.

Such facts are evidence, like it’s needed, of the intensity of interest in Led Zeppelin 30 years after they split. There had been desultory one-off reunions, but this O2 Arena show was the full monty. And now, for the best part of 20 million applicants who missed out on tickets for Greenwich, here is the official souvenir.

Available in a variety of varyingly priced packages, Celebration Day is an opportunity to witness the power and the glory of Led Zeppelin, quite possibly for the last time, and they certainly don’t disappoint. “There are certain songs that have to be played,” Robert Plant admits here, before a shrieking ride through one of the best back catalogues in rock.

There’s a scorched-earth take on Dazed and Confused, then the band harnesses its considerable energy on Ramble On, Black Dog and Rock and Roll. By the time they get to Whole Lotta Love you could swim home on the testosterone.

But there was always more to Led Zeppelin than amps that went up to 11. You think you’d groan, but Stairway to Heaven is curiously affecting (“Hey Ahmet,” grins Plant afterwards, “we did it”), while Kashmir has the relentless drive and authority of an invading army. In My Time of Dying and Nobody’s Fault but Mine display Plant’s strengths as a singer, and the band’s empathy with the music which so inspired them. Truth be told, some of the Jimmy Page solos go on longer than The Archers, but to hear that potency harnessed and unleashed is undeniably impressive. Surprisingly, the star of the show is the drummer, young Jason Bonham. The sheer physicality of his playing is awesome and exhausting.

Following their split, Led Zeppelin have always been protective of their legacy. Celebration Day is a fitting addition to their history. Experienced in conjunction with Barney Hoskyns’ eye-opening new biography, Trampled Under Foot, this is a powerful reminder of just what made Zeppelin fly. Now, do excuse me… I think I can hear Valhalla calling… (Patrick Humphries, BBC Reviews)

LED ZEPPELIN
John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant came together in 1968 as LED ZEPPELIN. Over the next decade, the band would become one of the most influential, innovative and successful groups in modern music, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide. Their songs are some of the most celebrated in rock 'n' roll history that, to this day, resonate with fans young and old around the globe. Still, no matter how many times you may have listened to their music, you've never heard Led Zeppelin like this before.

With the release of HighRes-Remaster editions of LED ZEPPELIN, Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin III, the band will launch an extensive reissue program of all nine of its studio albums in chronological order, each remastered by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page.

The LED ZEPPELIN legend began in January of 1969 with the group's eponymous debut. From the opening salvo of "Good Times Bad Times," on through to "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You," "Communication Breakdown," and "Dazed And Confused," the album introduced the band's unmistakable sound and left an indelible mark on the music landscape. LED ZEPPELIN has been certified diamond by the RIAA for sales over 10 million and was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2004.

The band wrote and recorded nearly all of Led Zeppelin II while touring relentlessly to support its debut album. Incredibly, the album was released just seven months after Led Zeppelin in October of 1969. Led Zeppelin II features some of the band's most beloved tracks including "Ramble On" and "Heartbreaker" as well as "Whole Lotta Love," considered by many to be one of the greatest rock 'n' roll songs of all time. The album is certified diamond by the RIAA with sales of over 12 million copies.

Following the whirlwind success of their first two albums and near constant touring, Page and Plant took to the now famous Bron-Yr-Aur cottage in Wales in 1970 to start the early composition of Led Zeppelin III. They later convened with Bonham and Jones for rehearsals before entering London's Olympic Studios to begin recording in May 1970. Fueled by classic tracks such as "Immigrant Song" and "Since I've Been Loving You," the album soared to the top of charts worldwide upon its release in October of 1970 and has since been certified 6x platinum.

LED ZEPPELIN continues to be honored for its pivotal role in music history. The band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and a year later was awarded with the Polar Music Prize in Stockholm. Founding members Jones, Page and Plant - along with Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham - took the stage at London's O2 Arena in 2007 to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, a dear friend and Atlantic Records' founder. The band was honored for its lifetime contribution to American culture at the Kennedy Center Honors in 2012. In January of 2014, the band won their first ever Grammy award as Celebration Day, which captured their live performance at the Ertegun tribute concert, was named Best Rock Album
