    Bugger! No word yet from Ticketmaster, even though it seems it was announced 2 days ago. Actually not holding my breath - he was to tour here in 2012 (and I had a ticket then too) and it was cancelled without rescheduling "due to unforseen circumstances". Leaves me just with the Foo Fighters that weekend... I'll live

    Nah, not having a go Xolo1974. That's the beauty of opinions - everyone's is different and valid. I had determined that those prices are acceptable to me (my point) - I can't make that decision for anybody else. The "sad" comment was referring to on principle you wouldn't pay that much for a such a show, now matter how good it might be. The $45 tribute band I expect was a great night. I've seen such bands too but I'm expecting that the JBLZE production (and staging costs, no doubt) will be at another level - I'll let you know in 5 weeks.
  8. Happy 10th anniversary Ahmet Tribute! (I've waited and waited... it's now 2pm here but the rest of the world's coming around. And I do know it's still 15 hours or so til the time!) I've Celebration Day-ed by having it on in the car at midnight, coming home from a show, watching the DVD and wearing my t-shirt playing guitar in the band at church this morning

    Ten Years Gone

    Dear mods Just wondering why it was thought better to move this thread to 'News', which it really isn't?

    Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience (Tour)

    Kind of sad. Really what anybody would pay indicates the value of that experience to them. You previously thought this was "value". That's a pub tribute band with no "connection"! There is an Australian set-up, CCEntertainment, which does an annual 'Led Zeppelin Celebration' called 'Whole Lotta Love' - 4 alternating vocalists, 9 piece band, generally filling smaller theatres. Don't try to act as Led Zeppelin. Musically superb. I think last time I saw them it was about $70AUD. Easily worth double that. I'm not anti pubs. Amongst the best shows I saw this year were free in pubs or $15-20AUD in small rooms. I also paid the most I ever have for a concert ticket (last week in a 12000 seat arena). $406AUD for a pommy bass player playing tunes from his earlier bands - and well and truly got my money's worth. I'd have to dig back to Queen in 1976 or the O2 Arena 10/12/2007 show (which to attend, cost me nearly 10x the amount last week) for a show which I'd say might have been"better". Needless to say, I'm looking forward to JBLZE in Sydney, am OK with the price and don't care whose not there!

    As you also said on the Australian fans page... If he's getting this sort of message from his homeland, why would he bother?

    Xolo1974, Jason's show is also in Perth on 30 Jan. Will be pretty special, I reckon.

    Hey zeppatic. I'll be in Sydney for both JBLZE and RP (Tues show).

    BIG bump! Who's still around? Been busy this week - and it's only Wednesday! Have got myself tix for Jason's Led Zep Experience at the State Theatre in Jan and Robert + SSS at the SOH in March Two out of four ain't bad, merely months after the 10th anniversary... Twilight zone thing is (even though they were pick a section or price category, not specific seat) they're the same row number and seat numbers differ by just one.
  15. Another year! Per tradition (well, at least since year 5) I've put C' Day DVD on and relived the night. My other enjoyable LZ experience this year (utilizing the USB audio input on my upgraded vehicle and having loaded a "high rotation" drive) was twice on long trips listening to the studio tracks in order from GTBT to I'm Gonna Crawl. Very rewarding!
  16. Doesn't time Know what I'm going to watch tonight!

    Anybody else going to see Robert Plant / SSS shows? Taking my 13y.o. to the Sydney Ent Cent on March 28. (And he's coming to Deep Purple next week - wish my parent's had been like that!)

    LED ZEPPELIN - CELEBRATION DAY (official announcement)

    ANOTHER SPOILER WARNING - in case you do not want to read this until it's in your hot little hands. Jason's contribution to the booklet in the DVD package (just beautiful)...
  21. Moved it to here: http://forums.ledzeppelin.com/index.php?/topic/18330-led-zeppelin-celebration-day-official-announcement/page__pid__630469__st__600#entry630469
  22. So, it's Friday lunchime here. Today, 16th, being our Australian release date (don't ask me why). Didn't pre-order because shipping would take til Monday and had to duck and and get it NOW. Unfortunately only the 2CD/DVD; DVD/2CD (see explanation later) and Blu-ray/2CD available - but I couldn't wait! (Have to get the Shepparton version later, maybe with Blu-ray as I guess I'll get a player at some stage). At A$22.95 for the DVD/2CD is a bargain anyway. Would you believe I teared up when I saw them all on the stand and when I was handed the package after paying and again when the CD got to to the first chorus of Ramble On in the car on the way back to work (which was the point in the concert that this feeling of "this was so worth the effort" swept over me). CD goes straight into BOM BOM - BOM BOM of GTBT and I'd started it so loud (vs. the movie) that I nearly jumped out of my skin Sounds great. I'd recommend what I got in the DVD/2CD format, just because the booklet is physically bigger that the 2CD/DVD in its CD sized case.

    [TBL] Celebration Day Bonus DVD Review.

    Bloke at JB HiFi Tuggerah said probably end of next week. No T-shirt packs today either.
  24. Did it once from end to end during a long car trip. Amazing experience actually. It was Easter 2009 several weeks after I'd randomly in a music shop seen the remastered studios as a quite cheap special. All except Physical Graffiti, which curiously was the only one I had on CD already! My vinyl collection was fair but incomplete, other bits had been on cassette - ha ha! About time I did it again

    Led Zeppelin: CELEBRATION DAY (Global Press/Media Coverage)

    Ignorant journalist moment This thread http://forums.ledzeppelin.com/index.php?/topic/18318-led-zeppelin-to-receive-kennedy-center-honor/ seems to explains it. As I read it, Jimmy, Robert and JPJ sit in the box with the President and watch other performers - as yet unannounced - play tribute versions of their songs.
