Led Zeppelin to Release ‘Celebration Day’ in Six Different Formats
Prior to this morning's press conference to discuss the 'Celebration Day' DVD release, the remaining members of Led Zeppelin revealed the legendary 2007 London show will be released in six different formats. Depending on your budget and how you hope to re-live the concert, there is something for everyone.
The standard edition is a one DVD or Blu-ray and two CD set, but the deluxe edition includes bonus video from rehearsals and news footage from the BBC. There is also a music-only CD set and a music-only Blu-ray that features high-resolution HD sound but no video.
Fans of vinyl can also purchase the 16-song set on three LPs, and the whole thing can also be downloaded at digital retailers.
The package is available for pre-order today, and will be released in all its configurations on Nov. 19. In addition, Omniverse Vision has arranged a theatrical screening of the concert for Oct. 17 on 1,500 movie screens in 40 cities worldwide. Tickets and details about those screenings are available at LedZeppelin.com.
The December 2007 concert was Led Zeppelin's first full-scale reunion (of surviving members) in 27 years. The 16 songs performed were essentially a greatest hits package including hits Robert Plant and Jimmy Page refused to play during their tours in their Plant/Page tours.
