When Led Zeppelin came together in December of 2007 to perform a one-night-only reunion concert at London's O2 Arena in tribute of their 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 what fans had hoped would kick off a reunion tour would instead become a part of the Led Zeppelin mythos.
Omniverse Vision is set to release Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day, a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band's signature blues-infused rock 'n' roll, on 1,500 screens worldwide for a one-night-only encore performance on Wednesday, October 17, 2012. Fans in 40 territories around the globe will now be able to experience the legendary 2007 reunion concert from a front-row vantage. 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 from their iconic catalogue. The set list includes:
1. Good Times Bad Times
2. Ramble On
3. Black Dog
4. In My Time Of Dying
5. For Your Life
