DBJ Posted December 17, 2007 Share Posted December 17, 2007 Everybody is looking for Zeppelin to tour, but even if they decide to do so there are a lot of obstacles to over come to get there, especially in the near term. Robert Plant appears to be pretty busy for at least through summer, it looks like it might be awhile before they can even plan anything. I therefore propose the following stopgap measure: Hold one more one off concert at perhaps Madison Square Gardens. Film that show and broadcast it Live via satellite to Movie theaters equipped with digital movie projection equipment. You could charge like $50 bucks to people who see the show via theaters and perhaps the theater could offer merchandise. This will allow them to reach an enormous fan base with very little commitment in terms of time. This would also Put Led Zeppelin on the cutting edge of media. They can continue their pioneering heritage. This would be a very high profile historical event, Eclipsing Elvis' Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite. Led Zeppelin Likes to set records: If the 20 million people who signed up for tickets went to see this in theaters and paid $50. That would be $1 Billion dollars in sales in 1 day not to mention merchandise. Plus, getting people to go to their local movie theater in far less of a commitment than making arrangements to visit another country. The number could exceed 20 million. Led Zeppelin would not only be making music history, they would make box office movie history as well. How many movies break $1 billion in one day The concert could start with a 30 minute lag time, and in the middle the band could take a 30 minute intermission break , then return to the stage to finish the show. The theaters could omit the intermission, or shorten it, and finish out the show live. This way the concert could be longer than o2. This could pioneer and open up a whole new way of promoting concerts. I think that seeing the show in a theater is almost as good as seeing them live . If the concert is a success they could hold an encore viewing the following week for like $25 bucks. ( I personally would go twice.) This could be done to keep the momentum going until they have time to commit to a proper tour. IF this is successful perhaps they could do this often. Imagine instead of getting to see them the one time they come to your town (if they come to your town). Or instead of the hassle of having to following them around, you could just see this weeks show at your local theater. besides aren't all this big new fancy theaters looking for ways to increase their revenue.
