Led Zeppelin's 'Celebration Day' live show to be aired on BBC2

Led Zeppelin have confirmed that a recording their 2007 live show at London's 02 Arena will air on BBC2 next month.

An hour-long version of the concert captured for the band's Celebration Day DVD will be shown on BBC2 on December 8 at 10:45pm. The live album version of the show recently entered the Official Album Chart at number two, one place behind Rihanna's 'Unapologetic'.

Performing at the London's O2 Arena, the band's founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham - the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a two-hour set, which included classics 'Whole Lotta Love,' 'Rock And Roll,' 'Kashmir,' and 'Stairway To Heaven'.

As many as 20 million people applied for tickets to the gig on December 10, 2007 - the band’s first headline show in 27 years – but only 18,000 were lucky enough to win in the lottery.

Celebration Day was given a general DVD release on November 19.

The tracklisting for Celebration Day is as follows:

'Good Times Bad Times'
'Ramble On'
'Black Dog'
'In My Time Of Dying'
'For Your Life'
'Trampled Under Foot'
'Nobody’s Fault But Mine'
