THE BAND’S WEBSITE HAS RECEIVED OVER 1.7 MILLIONS HITS
IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS
Led Zeppelin’s website has been getting 100,000 hits a day from fans - 46,000 searches for local show times and 4,000 requests - to bring the band’s historic 2007 reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena to a screen near them
(Los Angeles) Following the worldwide success of LED ZEPPELIN: CELEBRATION DAY, the cinema concert event which presented live footage of the band’s 2007 reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena, there has been an enormous response from fans – 1.7 million fans have visited the fan’s website. The film was screened in 15,000 cinemas around the world for a strictly limited engagement on Wednesday, October 17, 2012. Fans who were unable to attend the original tribute concert for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun in 2007, when more than 20 million fans applied for the 18,000 available tickets in a worldwide lottery, finally had the opportunity to see it as if they had front row tickets. The film earned $2 million in a single night and was a phenomenal success.
Omniverse Vision, the UK-based distribution company that released Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day, a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ‘n’ roll, has been working with online marketing specialist Distrify to track the response from fans online via an interactive platform on the Led Zeppelin website. With 100,000 hits a day, including 46,000 searches for show times and 4,000 requests for local screenings, Distrify has been able to compile the information needed for Omniverse Vision executives to agree to schedule encore performances in select markets to meet the demands of Led Zeppelin’s fans. There has been overwhelming interest in additional screenings from the U.S., the UK, Japan, Brazil, Canada, Italy, Germany, France, Mexico and Australia.
For younger fans, this film may be the first time that they will see founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, along with Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, together on stage. For older fans, this might be their last chance to see these iconic rockers perform 16 songs from their iconic catalogue. The band made it all too clear in press conferences announcing Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day that there were no plans for a reunion tour. The set list for the cinema concert event includes:
1. Good Times Bad Times
2. Ramble On
3. Black Dog
4. In My Time Of Dying
5. For Your Life
6. Trampled Under Foot
7. Nobody’s Fault But Mine
8. No Quarter
9. Since I’ve Been Loving You
10. Dazed And Confused
11. Stairway To Heaven
12. The Song Remains The Same
13. Misty Mountain Hop
15. Whole Lotta Love
16. Rock And Roll
Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day will be presented in high definition with surround sound in movie theatres for an encore performance on Tuesday, November 13. Tickets are limited. For a list of theatres and show times, please refer to the Led Zeppelin website.
Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day will then be available in multiple video and audio formats on November 19, 2012 from Swan Song/Atlantic Records.
Led Zeppelin has also been selected as one of the recipients of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors. The band is set to receive the Honors at the annual gala on December 2, 2012 in Washington, DC.
"It’s just four guys playing their heart out, as Jimmy Page attested during today’s press conference:
'In every rehearsal leading up to (the reunion concert), Jason [Bonham] really played his heart out.
We all played our hearts out, to be honest.'"
“The viewer is witness to full-on Led Zep sonic fury. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones’ performances, combined with Jason Bonham’s powerhouse drumming,
just leap from the screen. Stellar 14-camera cinematography takes you onstage with the band, so every glance, wink and nod gives witness to their chemistry as the set unfolds.
This is a film that needs to be seriously watched, digested and enjoyed over and over again. Younger fans
that weren’t alive when the group was in its prime can see and experience what a magnificent band Led Zeppelin actually was.”
