Led Zeppelin concert film to screen in Atlanta theaters

 

[I'm on with my rock 'n' roll pal Kaedy Kiely at 97.1 The River every Wednesday at 6:50 and 7:50 a.m. to talk about the latest rock news. Tune in to see what's up!]

Led Zeppelin fans have plenty to celebrate in the next few months with the November release of “Celebration Day,” a live CD-DVD of the band’s concert at London’s O2 Arena in 2007.

But first, the concert film gets a nationwide bow on Oct. 17-18. “Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. both evenings at Discover Mills 18 in Lawrenceville and Hollywood 24 in Atlanta.

Tickets are on sale now at www.fathomevents.com for $15.

The recorded version of the show will be available Nov. 19 in multiple formats – standard 1 DVD/2 CD, vinyl, digital, music-only Blu-ray audio – and include songs “Ramble On,” Black Dog,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Misty Mountain Hop” and a little rock tune called “Stairway to Heaven.”

The band has also been selected as a recipient of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors. Jimmy Page recently stated that he, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones plan to attend the Dec. 2 ceremony in D.C.

I remember going to the midnight movies at Phipps Plaza in the early 80s, getting baked in the parking lot and seeing The Song Remains the Same movie. Awesome times!

LOL. I’m betting we crossed paths a few times then! Going to the midnight movie, getting baked and going to waffle house afterward was a weekend tradition for us in the early 80’s. And you are correct — those WERE awesome times!!!!!!

Saw Zep at the old stadium around 1974 and it wasn’t all that. Still, I don’ t mind if they find a way to “monetize” (i.e., cash in) their legacy.

Ha! I saw the Song Remains at Phipps midnight movies too, though I think it was earlier than the 80’s. I did the same, except the WH part! Snuck beers into the theatre too.

Saw them in the flesh at the Omni in ‘77. I will definitely go see this film.

Thanks for the “head’s” up Melissa!

Love Love Love Led Zeppelin…. Have seen them 5 times. Best was at the Knebworth Outdoor Festival in England in 1979. So great, and hey they played alot more than 3 songs.!
Robert Plant is the best. Even with Alison Krauss.
Biggest fight ever got into with my Parents was not letting me miss my High School Graduation so I could go see Zeppelin at Fulton County Stadium in 1974.
