Zeppelin to release concert film

Dancing days are here again for Led Zeppelin fans.

Nearly five years after the British blues-rockers reunited for a one-off show in London -- and five days after the band began a cryptic countdown on their website -- a concert film of the legendary gig is finally seeing the light of day.

Titled Celebration Day, the movie will premiere in theatres on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with various audio and video configurations available on Nov. 19, according to a press release.

The two-hour-plus film documents the Dec. 10, 2007 reunion concert by singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones, with drummer Jason Bonham filling the shoes of his late father John Bonham. The band's first headlining gig in 27 years was part of a tribute concert for deceased Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. Some 20 million people applied for 18,000 tickets to the reunion show, which was held at London's O2 Arena and attended by VIPs like Mick Jagger.

Speaking of reunions, Zeppelin have also been selected as recipients of the this year's Kennedy Center Honours, so at least some of the surviving members should be in the house for the Dec. 2 ceremony in D.C. That alone should be enough to get the reunion-tour rumour mill churning again, despite Plant's consistent and clearly stated lack of enthusiasm for a large-scale comeback.

1. Good Times Bad Times
