Led Zep film coming to theaters

Staff report

“Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day,” the concert film of a two-hour-plus show the band staged five years ago, will open Wednesday in the U.S. for a limited run.

It will be shown in northeast Ohio at the following locations: Cinemark Tinseltown, 4720 Mega St. NW, North Canton; Cinemark at Valley View, 6001 Canal Road, Valley View; and Southpark Mall cinema, Strongsville.

There are no Youngstown theaters showing the film.

The one-time reunion concert was at London’s O2 Arena in December 2007. It was in tribute of the band’s friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

More than 20 million fans applied for the 18,000 available tickets in a worldwide lottery. It was the first headline show for the band in 27 years, and it gave fans false hope that it would kick off a reunion tour.

Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, along with Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, perform 16 songs. The set list includes “Dazed and Confused,” “Stairway to Heaven,” “The Song Remains the Same,” “Whole Lotta Love” and “Rock and Roll.”

“Celebration Day” will be released on video and audio formats on Nov. 19.
