Grammy Nominations 2017
Led Zeppelin Coming to Theaters, Kennedy Center
Led Zeppelin is coming to a movie theater near you. Then a record store. The iconic British rock 'n' roll band will release its 2007 "Celebration Day" reunion as a concert film on Oct. 13, then will put out the show on multiple video and audio formats on Nov. 19.
Original members Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page were joined onstage by Jason Bonham, son of the late drummer John Bonham, for the tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.
The two-hour concert included "Stairway to Heaven," ''Kashmir" and "Dazed and Confused" among its 19 songs. It was the band's first headlining show in 27 years.
The film will be shown in 1,500 theaters around the world. Tickets are available at the band's website.
In December, the band will join Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman and David Letterman, and three others, as recipients of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors, the nation's highest honor for those who have influenced American culture through the arts.
The band, which has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, issued a joint statement saying America was the first place to embrace their music.
"We owe a large debt to the vitality and variety of the music of the American people," they wrote.
The honor comes with a dinner with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and a reception hosted by President Barack Obama. The honorees will be saluted by fellow artists Dec. 2 in a show to be broadcast Dec. 26 on CBS.
