Pilot, brspled and other old boarders met up for a meal before the show. Quite a few of us met up the night before after collecting our wristbands n tickets. They were fabulous gatherings of people from around the world. And we are all still friends in real life.

Wow, nice to get a call out on this forum! I haven't posted in forever but wanted to say 'hi' to Pilot, Paul, Helen, Celia and all the other friends I met on this magical day. The night before at the Worlds End was epic, and yes I remember trying to find Helen at Canary Wharf! You all are memorialized in the artwork I had created to remember this event as I have the picture we took at TGIF @ Canary Wharf in the frame. Paul has seen it since he visited me in Chicago on his Tour of America last year. You are all very special people and I feel honored to have shared this event with all of you!

I was in Canary wharf again on sunday *( 10 yrs to the day) and saw 2 of the boots stores. There was still no sign of Helen.

Although she is due to arrive in the UK today.

Really? Please send her my warmest regards when you next speak to her.

Dear mods

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

That whole weekend leading up to the show was so much fun. Starting when I stepped off the plane and the immigration agent asked how long I was staying. When I replied I was going home on Dec. 11 he asked in a dry tone if I was there for the Led Zeppelin concert. The gatherings the night before the concert, even the long wait to pick up ticket and wristband and then wait again in the merchandise line just built up the buzz and anticipation. Finally, standing in the crowd on the arena floor witnessing such a wonderful show.

Truly, a spectacular adventure. Still hard to believe it was ten years ago.

Happy 11 years gone everybody! Time sure flies.

As is my custom, I watched the Celebration Day DVD last night.

 

(I know there's been a thread in the Master Forum for the last couple of months about the relative merits of the concert but I'm just reminiscing on it's anniversary)

Ollie: What are you doing?
Stan: There's somebody knocking on the phone.
Ollie: See? That's levity.
Stan: Hello, Mr. Levity?
Ollie: Answer the door! "Mr. Levity". Mmph!

One of my favorites is the haunted ship.  When the drunk falls in the paint. Where they gather the crew by bringing those eggs into the bar.  Funny as hell.

Twelve years gone today.

To put it in perspective...

Led Zeppelin's entire existence as a band was 12 years...1968-1980.

Live Aid was five years after Led Zeppelin's 1980 Euro Tour and Bonham's death. The Atlantic Records 40th anniversary reunion was three years after Live Aid, eight years after 1980.

The first Page & Plant tour was in 1995, seven years after the Atlantic 40th and 15 years after 1980. 

The O2 was nine years after the last Page & Plant tour in 1998 and 18 years since 1980.

It has now been 12 years since the O2, 21 YEARS since the 1998 Page/Plant tour (arguably Page's finest sustained performances since the mid-70s), 34 years since Live Aid, and 39 years since 1980.

And yet, people still cling to the hope of a reunion tour.
