It was the most talked about reunion in decades. While only 18,000 of 9 million applicants were able to get tickets for the Led Zeppelin reunion at the 02 arena, London, in 2007, a Belgian radio station is suggesting that fans may be able to relive the gig on their home cinema systems. As Led-Zeppelin.com reports, Belgian Radio station Classic 21 was on Wednesday morning reporting that DVD, Blu-Ray and CD versions of the gig would be released in November of this year:
The famous Led Zeppelin concert in London at the O2 Arena in 2007 double DVD released in November.
According to Warner Music, a double DVD, accompanied by two CDs, the resume legendary concert which took place in 2007 at the 02 Arena, where 9 million people had tried to buy 18,000 tickets available.
No complete set had been given since 1979. Among the crowd, there were Paul McCartney, Noel and Liam Gallagher, David Gilmour, Arctic Monkeys, Kate Moss and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters.
However, as Led-Zeppelin.com notes, the news is strictly a rumor. Neither Warner Music, or the management of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones have confirmed the release.
The last official DVD release from Led Zeppelin (the imaginatively titled Led Zeppelin DVD) has proved to be one of the most successful music home video releases of all time. The set, which came out in 2003, was last month certified 13x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, having sold 1.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. That release comprised footage of the band’s 1970 Royal Albert Hall, 1973 Madison Square Garden, 1975 Earl’s Court and 1979 Knebworth concerts.
Whether the rumored release proves to be true or not, fans can in the mean time satisfy their Led Zeppelin urges with the wealth of fan-shot footage from the show that has appeared on Youtube:
