Led Zeppelin Cryptically Hints At The Release Of 2007 O2 Reunion Show
Led Zeppelin fans may receive a long-awaited Christmas present this year, or at least that is what a pair of cryptic messages from the band alluded yesterday.
As Led Zeppelin’s 2007 reunion show at London’s O2 Arena nears its fifth anniversary, the band may finally be preparing to release what was the most in demand concert of the last decade. Scrawled in the same font used for the Houses of the Holy album, the band posted an undefined “five” on their facebook page. Jimmy Page’s manager, Peter Mensch, tweeted a more-direct message stating, “It’s almost here. I’ve seen it and heard it. Almost 5 years to the day.”
Originally a part of a tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, the December 17th, 2007 show was the band’s first since 1988. The 17-song set included an Otis Rush cover and many staples from the band’s career, including their first-ever complete performance of “Ramble On” as a band. The release of this concert as a DVD or a live album would likely be the biggest of the year and you may count Long After Dark as being among the first in line.

Led Zeppelin recently posted a “four” on their facebook page in the same Houses of the Holy font that they had used a day earlier. While the release of a DVD being the most likely outcome, the antagonizingly-cryptic message is vintage Led Zeppelin. Does the “four” represent something greater? Dare I say reunion or new album?
