On December 10, 2007, founding Led Zeppelin members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant, joined by late Zep drummer John Bonham’s son Jason, headlined a concert at London’s O2 Arena in tribute to their dear friend, Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

Those screenings will follow premieres in London, Los Angeles, New York, and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings are available beginning today, September 13, via ledzeppelin.com. Celebration Day will then be available in multiple video and audio formats on November 19.
