Administrators sam_webmaster Posted August 17, 2015 Administrators Share Posted August 17, 2015 AXS TV to Salute Led Zeppelin on Labor Day with Multiple Screenings of "Celebration Day"August 17, 2015 This Labor Day will be a Led Zeppelin “Celebration Day” over at AXS TV, as the high-def network is planning to pay tribute to the band on the 47th anniversary of its first concert with a special block of programming. AXS TV will play the British rock legends’ 2012 concert film Celebration Day four times back to back on Monday, September 7, starting at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT. Serving as host of the special will be Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, who stepped in for his dad at the band’s 2007 reunion show in London that was filmed for the Celebration Day movie. Jason will share stories about growing up with his famous father, and about his experiences playing with the group at the historic concert. Celebration Day documents Led Zeppelin’s December 10, 2007, reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena. It features singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones, along with Jason, ripping through a set of the band’s classic songs, including “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock and Roll,” “Kashmir” and the epic “Stairway to Heaven.” The show was organized as part of a tribute to late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. “It’s a great privilege and an honor to be even in the same breath as my father,” says Jason. “To get a chance to play with these peers, with the band as well, you’re gonna see what was truly one of the greatest days of my life.” After the 11 a.m. ET screening, AXS TV will air Celebration Day again at 1:15 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. ET and 5:45 p.m. ET. Led Zeppelin’s very first concert took place on September 7, 1968, in Gladsaxe, Denmark, although the band was actually still billing itself as The Yardbirds at the time. http://www.classichitsandoldies.com/v2/65030/ Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
