In late 2007, it was announced that on December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin would take the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for their friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.  The 18,000 tickets were made available by raffle – over twenty million people applied to buy tickets.

What followed was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly  became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 17 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love”, “Rock And Roll”, “Kashmir”, and “Stairway To Heaven.” A film of the show, “Celebration Day”, is now available on DVD and Blu-ray and includes the entire concert in HD video and in 5.1, 48/24 hi-resolution audio surround sound. “Celebration Day” is an incredible document of the now legendary concert, which has been described as possibly the greatest rock and roll concert ever.  I personally ordered the 3 LP set, it will also be available on CD.
