The title pretty much says it all. I've only ever been able to find mobile phone/digital camera footage, though I haven't looked extensively or anything.

There WAS a minute or two pro-shot multi-angle footage shown on I think BBC News or some outlet like that at the time. Can't recall what song though

Black Dog.

Apparently the whole show was filmed, but don't hold your breath waiting for a DVD release.

Led Zeppelin hate their fans (or don't care for them at least)

I have seen this sentiment (band does not care about the fans) being expressed a lot of fans of queen (right here n QZ), Prince and now Led Zep. Every time the context is the official releases from the band. Just an observation.

In the past 15 years, Page has released concert material from 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 75 and 79. Why should Zeppelin fans hate him?

Or better yet, what does he owe them?

I always thought it'd be Plant holding it up. The bastard.

TRW: "Or better yet, what does he owe them?"

Essentially, an artist doesn't owe his fans anything, although if it weren't for the fans, they wouldn't attain commercial success. I don't like the word 'owe', and I would never want an artist to spend their career doing the exact same thing, just to appease their fans. But they should still care about their fans. How they express their caring for their fans is subjective, and varies among artists, however any artist who takes a 'who gives a fuck about the fans?' attitude doesn't deserve any fans.

For the record, I think that Page does care about the fans. If anything, he may care too much as he's done basically nothing of value in the past 30 years.

Zebonka: "I always thought it'd be Plant holding it up. The bastard."

It most certainly is. Personally, I'm not too concerned. As much as I love Zeppelin, I'm adoring Plant's solo career at the moment (Band of Joy is one of my favourite albums, and it's just one of several terrific albums he's made in in the past 2 decades). I just need him to visit Australia!!!

I enjoyed No Quarter: PLant & Page unledded.

Me too, :D, however other than that (and that was basically Zeppelin material), what has he done? Not much.

Have to take your word on that. With CDs on Amazon so cheap, I'm currently ploughing through a whole bunch of music I missed out on first time around, but Plant is closer to the end of the alphabet than the start so it will be a while before I get there!

Amazon is great, although since it doesn't accept Paypal, I personally mostly use eBay or Borders.

Regarding Plant, the way to look at it is this. In 1993 he made Fate of Nations, which was a really good album. Almost everything he's done since (including FoN) is amazing, or at least really good. That, Dreamland, Mighty Rearranger, Raising Sand, and Band of Joy are all great, with Band of Joy & Mighty Rearranger being arguably the best (in that order).

However, everything he's done before FoN (apart from Led Zeppelin) is a waste of time, with his 80's albums sounding very much like 80's albums. Unless you're a completist, they aren't worth your money.

It's interesting as prior to hearing Band of Joy, I wans't a big fan of either Plant or Zeppelin. However, upon hearing it, I fell in love with it, and I started listening to Zeppelin again, and I fell in love with Zeppelin. I since bought all the other albums I mentioned, and I also bought my first Zeppelin studio album (III).

While I don't consider Plant to be as good a vocalist as Freddie (which I only bring up because Plant's often ranked higher), I think he's extraordinary not in just in terms of what he did with Zeppelin, but also in terms of how he was able to adapt as he's gotten older, and he sounds better than ever. With Zeppelin, while magnificent, he wasn't flawless (there were times when he sounded too much like a little girl), and while he's not necessarily better than he was with Zeppelin, IMO he's a little less flawed.

I'm a massive fan of both Zeppelin-Plant and current/post-Zeppelin Plant, and I thank the musical gods for both, however I really recommend that you skip some letters, and go out and get some Plant (at least Band of Joy, followed by Mighty Rearranger.) :D

I'm at Beatles, BB King and Clapton at the moment, but I might just skip a few letters on your recommendation :)

Didn't this get shown in cinemas a week or two after Hungarian Rhapsody? I'm sure there was some sort of Zep thing on at cinemas, and talk of an official release of it.

I hope they've been light on the overdubs. A lot of what I've heard of the gig was fine. Kashmir was pretty cooking, as far as I recall.

Don't eat them yet Bob lol, I'm not actually sure if it WAS the 02 show that went out at cinemas. Would be pretty awesome if it did get a release though.....

absoluitely
in fact quote from Jimmy Page (Mojo - dec 2012 issue) re a possible tour or record:
"well if jason, john paul jones and i were playing afterwards then, sure, we were willing to go beyond the element of the O2. But we couldn't do anything that was a led zeppelin reunion unless the singer was there. quite clearly we're there, but he's not, so what's the point of playing games with it?"
and:-
"hey listen, if i was going out on my own i'd do led zeppelin material, but i'd do yardbirds too, but if we had come up with some kind of conccotion with the three remaining members we wouldn't call it led zeppelin would we?"

there's also a certain reverence and respect in that last sentence. commendable
