LED ZEP­PELIN

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSICREVIEWS -

★★★★ For a cer­tain gen­er­a­tion, the ref­or­ma­tion of Led Zep­pelin is akin to win­ning the lottery or hav­ing their dreams come true. That’s ex­actly what hap­pened in Lon­don al­most five years ago, on the night of De­cem­ber 7th, at the city’s O Arena, when the

2 re­main­ing mem­bers of the iconic British rock band (Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones) got to­gether to play a trib­ute show for At­lantic Records boss Ah­met Erte­gun. Twenty mil­lion fans ap­plied for 18,000 tick­ets? You had to be there, for sure. But if for 19,982,000 rea­sons you weren’t, then cel­e­brate the com­ing of Cel­e­bra­tion Day, which is a lux­u­ri­ous in-your-sweaty-face live CD/DVD ex­pe­ri­ence that re­ally proves just how good a band this bunch of old pros are. Or is it “were”? There are no signs of a con­tin­u­a­tion. Yet. ledzep­pelin.com
