LED Zep­pelin plan on re­unit­ing, they have a funny way of say­ing it. Dur­ing a news con­fer­ence this week to pro­mote their 2007 re­union concert film, Cel­e­bra­tion Day, the band be­came un­com­fort­able with a ques­tion about ‘‘an­tic­i­pat­ing some­thing big­ger for the band’’. ‘‘We’ve been think­ing about all sorts of things, and then we can’t re­mem­ber what we were think­ing about,’’ singer Robert Plant said testily. He then re­ferred to the re­porter by the pe­jo­ra­tive term ‘‘sch­muck’’. The band fielded ques­tions about a pos­si­ble re­union throughout the news con­fer­ence, of­ten re­spond­ing with stoic si­lence. At one point, gui­tarist Jimmy Page men­tioned that the re­union concert was five years ago and that if there was a chance they were re­unit­ing, you would have heard. ‘‘Seems pretty un­likely, doesn’t it?’’ Page said. The film cov­ers the band’s 2007 re­union concert at Lon­don’s 02 Arena. Orig­i­nal mem­bers Plant, Page, and John Paul Jones, as well as the son of the late John Bon­ham, played a one­time trib­ute concert in hon­our of At­lantic records founder Ah­met Erte­gun. screens at Event Cine­mas Robina and Birch Car­roll & Coyle Cine­mas Pa­cific Fair on Wed­nes­day at 7pm. Visit ledzep­pelin.com for de­tails. The CD and DVD will be re­leased on Novem­ber 16.

Don’t men­tion the re­union: Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.
