Led Zeppelin Concert Film to Get U.S. TV Debut
Led Zeppelin’s 2012 concert film, Celebration Day, is coming to the small screen. AXS TV has announced that the network will hold the U.S. television premiere of Led Zeppelin’s 2012 concert film, Celebration Day, the week of Thanksgiving.
The movie, which follows the band’s famed December 2007 reunion show in London, will premiere at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday, Nov. 24. Encore broadcasts will play every night of the week at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from Monday, Nov. 25, through Thursday, Nov. 28, Thanksgiving evening.
“Led Zeppelin is such an integral part of the musical landscape and evolution of rock ‘n’ roll,” AXS TV founder Mark Cuban said in a statement. “Making such a landmark performance accessible to millions of households is one of the ways AXS TV intends to bring music back to television.”
Celebration Day brings together surviving Led Zeppelin members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones with late drummer John Bonham’s son, Jason.
