We’re down to “1″ on Led Zeppelin’s much-buzzed about Facebook countdown that started at “5″ on Saturday leading us to believe that the announcement of the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the group’s 2007 reunion show will take place within 24 hours. That hasn’t stopped those around the music industry and LZ fans from trying to scoop the band.
Yesterday, Britain’s The Sun newspaper reported that the video release will take place on November 22nd. A source for the paper says, “Jimmy [Page] has been in the studio making sure everything is perfect. The band want it to remain true to their exceptionally high standards.” Today, intrepid fans came across a listing for a one-night-only broadcast of “Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day,” with a description of the 2007 reunion show, that will hit theaters on October 17th. We think at this point it’s fait accompli that tomorrow’s announcement will be about the release of the reunion show. Hopefully they’ll share video and/or audio of a full song to whet our appetite.
