LED ZEPPELIN: Celebration Day



   Once upon a time there was a Rock band called Led Zeppelin which happens to be one of the greatest Rock bands, period!
This great band was split up in 1980 after the death of their drummer John Bohnam. Since then, from time to time rumors were spreading around about a reunion, about a new record, about live shows etc… But unfortunately they were never true…
   A few years ago a new rumor came out and spread out quickly like a fire: Led Zeppelin will make a reunion for one and only concert, in order to honor the memory of Ahmet Ertegun, the Atlantic Records’ boss that recently had passed… Net profit from the tickets would  go to the ‘Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund’, which provides scholarships for gifted children.
This live show would  be held in the Q2 Arena in London.  A new site was opened for the needs of the concert, and everyone who wanted could register for a ticket and waiting to see if he/she would be one of the lucky ones. Because the tickets would be given after lottery.
The result? Almost 10.000.000 applications for about 20.000 tickets!
These 20.000 VERY lucky ticket owners travelled from all over the world to London, and on the night of 10th December 2007 watched an unforgettable show, leaving the rest 9.980.000 of us wondering for life how it would be like to be there that night.
   The concert it was a magnet not only for the fans, but for the celebrities as well. Many showed up in the Q2 Arena with David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Kate Moss, members of Oasis and Genesis, Steve Winwood (Traffic)  and Marilyn Manson being some of them…
   And now, almost 5 years later, this concert is going to be on the cinemas! Like the first time with ‘The Song Remains the Same’ (1976), ‘Celebration Day’ will be on the cinemas on the 17th of October.
But to which cinemas? That is a question that I don’t have an answer to give.
