After the tragic death of their drummer John Bonham in 1980, Led Zeppelin could not be persuaded to reform and play again. That is until 2007, when, on 10th December, vocallist Robert Plant, Guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones reunited for a one-off show at London's O2 arena. John Bonham's son, Jason joined the band on drums, and together they delivered the show the fans thought they would never see. More than 20 million people applied for just 18,000 tickets, which broke the world record for the most over-subcribed gig in history.  

This historical gig was held as a tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. The performance was filmed and the footage put together for cinematic release, featuring 16 classic songs, and directed by long-time Led Zeppelin collaborator Dick Carruthers, 'Celebration Day' captures every moment of the incredible event in stunning high defination and surround sound. 

The film of Celebration Day will see a worldwide theatrical release on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17. Celebration Day will then be available in multiple video and audio formats on November 19 from Swan Song/Atlantic Records.
