Celebration Day is a live concert film by English rock band Led Zeppelin, recorded at the 2007 Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert at The O2 in London.


In 2007, a benefit concert to commemorate the life of former Atlantic Records music president Ahmet Ertegun was staged with a reunited Led Zeppelin as the headline act.[1] They performed several of their most well-known songs to a record attendance and recorded a professional document of the show with the prospect of a future Blue-Ray/DVD release.[2] Along with illicit bootleg recordings there were rumours circulating that the Blue-Ray/DVD would become available, but in the following months, guitarist and producer Jimmy Page said that release wasn't definite and that mixing required some time to work on.[3] No new information was forthcoming until 9 September 2012, when the band updated their official Facebook page with a countdown, which lead to speculation that some recording was ready for release. It was finally revealed that a cinematic film of the concert would be screened in preview at Berlin, London, Los Angeles, New York City, and Tokyo on 12 October 2012 before a general on 17 October 2012.[4]
