Led Zeppelin to release O2 concert DVD?

Led Zeppelin to release O2 concert DVD?

The internet has been hit with speculation after Led Zeppelin posted a cryptic status update on their official Facebook page on Saturday [September 8], the day after a Led Zeppelin Twitter account launched.

Fans have been speculating what the picture of the word 'five' - written in same typeface as the Led Zeppelin logo for the Houses Of The Holy album – means, with many guessing that it could be a reference to an up-coming release of their 2007 O2 reunion concert on DVD.

A Twitter account also went live on Friday [September 7], with a simple "Hello".

The "Five" was Tweeted on Saturday [September 8] and "Four" yesterday [Sunday 9], suggesting a countdown is in progress.

The band reunited to play the Ahmet Ertegun concert in December 2007 at the O2 arena in London, but a DVD of the much sought after gig has never been released.

This theory was given extra credence yesterday afternoon when Peter Mensch, who is manager of Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, posted on Twitter:

"it's almost here. I've seen it and heard it. almost 5 years to the day."

Previously, on July 9, Mensch ‏had Tweeted:

"today, Moulder continues with his stellar mixing of the O2 show. it's been 5 years coming and it's almost here."
