Special screenings to take place across the UK on 'reunion' night
Vue Cinemas are organising for a special evening of [b]Led Zeppelin[/b] live footage to be screened this Monday (December 10), as the band take to the stage at the O2 Arena for their ‘reunion’ show.
As previously reported, Led Zeppelin’s performance at the O2 will not be filmed or broadcast. Only the lucky 20, 000 ticket holders will be able to see their one-off performance.
However, fans needn’t have a totally non-Led Zep night, live performances from throughout Led Zep’s career will be broadcast at cinemas including the Greenwich O2 where the concert is taking place to as far away as the Edinburgh Ocean cinema, in conjunction with Warner Music.
The special collation of footage includes the band playing live in the 1970s, including from the Royal Albert Hall in ’70, the band’s five-night residency of Earl’s Court in 1975 and Knebworth in ’79.
The screenings will be in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, and the sound and colour in the images have been restored – under the personal supervision of Jimmy Page and director Dick Carruthers.
The Vue are selling tickets for the screenings through their website, here: www.myvue.com
The Led Zeppelin screenings are to take place at the following Vue cinemas:
Birmingham Star City
Bristol Longwell Green
Thurrock Lakeside Shopping Centre
Dublin Liffey Valley Shopping Centre[/b]
