A rumor has been circulating online that Led Zeppelin’s historic set at London’s O2 Arena for the Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert in December 2007 may soon be released as a double DVD and double CD package and be out by Christmas.
A report on Belgian classic rock radio station site rtbf.be (via FindingZoso) siting sources at Warner Music claiming that ‘Led Zeppelin: Live at London’s O2 Arena’ will be released in November. That posting has since been removed.
Others have mnentioned a possibilty of some Led Zeppelin activity in the past, with ‘That Metal Show’ co-hosts Eddie Trunk tweeting a few months back, “Heard from a very reliable source backstage at AEROSMITH show that there will be some sort of LED ZEPPELIN activity around Christmas.”
Drummer Jason Bonham, who took part in the reunion, told the Mark & Brian Show of Los Angeles radio station KLOS in December 2010 in regards to the possibility of the concert being released on DVD, “Nothing is official, as yet. I only know that because Robert had said that he’d watched it. I really do hope that it eventually will see the light of day. It’s just nice to know that Robert had seen it, so I knew something, but it was nice that he rang up and said, ‘Wow, it sounded great.’ Fingers crossed, everybody…fingers crossed.”
Tickets for the one-night only show were more valuable than gold, with an estimated nine million people millions applying online for one of the 18,000 seats inside the O2. Let’s hope their is truth to this. We’ll keep you updated as information on a possible release date becomes available.
