Led Zeppelin movie to play at Gwinnett theater

LAWRENCEVILLE -- In December 2007, Led Zeppelin reunited in London to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, Atlantic Records founder and friend of the band. This concert will be shown in U.S. movie theaters at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17 and 18.

National CineMedia Fathom Events and Omniverse Vision presents "Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day," which will be shown in the Gwinnett area at Discover Mills, located at 5900 Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville.

The band's first headlining concert in 27 years gathered attention as 20 million people applied for tickets. Despite this, only 18,000 tickets were given out for the concert.

"Thousands of fans missed their chance to see them live in 2007," said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. "This is their opportunity to experience the rock n' roll reunion of the century in the comfort of their local movie theater."

The show will feature founding members of Led Zeppelin: John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Jason Bonham, the son of the band's late drummer John Bonham. The band will showcase 16 songs from its career such as "Whole Lotta Love," "Rock and Roll," "Kashmir," "Stairway to Heaven" and other signature works.

On Nov. 19, Swan Song/Atlantic Records will release "Celebration Day" in multiple video and audio formats.
