16 Songs, 1 Hour 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It seemed impossible at the time, yet here's the proof that history was made. In 2007, as part of a benefit tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, Led Zeppelin reformed to play more than two hours of epic rock 'n' roll. Celebration Day captures Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham (son of original drummer John Bonham) as they find the heart and soul in songs like "Ramble On," "Black Dog," and "Whole Lotta Love." The mammoth power that comes through on "Kashmir" and "Dazed and Confused" explains why this sold-out, one-off performance was one of the decade's most feted musical events. To list every classic drum break, song, solo, and lyric performed is practically superfluous. Just let it be known that for students of rock 'n' roll, school is back in session.

The closest we'll ever get...don't anger the Gods

In response to all the "critics"...are you serious? Are you actually going to judge this live show based upon sound quality, distortion levels, the lack of John Bonham (I don't think they could do much about that one), or anything else? Is there any true musician out there who does not understand the importance of these songs, this band, and this legacy? This show was performed after about 3 weeks of practicing, and it sounds better than the vast majority of the nonsense that is typically on any of the "rock" stations these days. Without Zeppelin, what would we be listening to? Who amongst you can seriously judge this show and say that it's anything less than spectacular? And if so, take a good long look in the mirror. These guys took over the rock and roll scene in a time when rock and roll was battle-tested. It was sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll, and not the garbage that followed for decades. This was a war of the worlds, and Zeppelin came out victorious. And nearly every single one of their songs has stood the test of time. What band worth a ticket charge has not covered a Zeppelin song at one time or another? And be careful and do your research before you hastilly respond. This is as close as we'll ever get to entering the pearly gates of rock n' roll heaven - this is not an album, it's a teaching method that we should pass down to our children. We won't ever find anything like this again, and you can bet the farm on that statement. Well, well, well...so I can die easy...

I was at the O2 - rest assured this will not disappoint!

Had the tremendous good fortune to attend the live show in London. It was far and away the best concert experience imaginable (and I've been to my fair share). The energy on the floor was unbelievable, seconded only by the performance. Everyone will enjoy this, and I always hoped they would release the film and track one day! Honestly, I very much doubt we'll see another performance quite like it.

His awesomeness, Lemmy ,

The final sighting of the great Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin was the ultimate rock band, ever. They lasted throughout the 1970's and had so many great songs. Great setlist, but I would have liked The Ocean, Thank You, When the Levee breaks, etc. I can't complain, its Zeppelin. Bonzo would have been proud. Thank you, Jimmy, Robert, John Paul Jones, John and Jason Bonham for making such great music. RIP John Bonham 1948-1980. This is for you.
