I've a whole lotta love for this wonderful concert - 93%
1 April 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

In 1995, I was taken to my first live music experience at the tender age of 14. Robert Plant & Jimmy Page were touring and my Dad took me off to the Birmingham NEC to see revisit classic Led Zeppelin tracks. It was incredible and remains one of the defining moments of my life, proud to say that I was there and wearing the T-shirt. Knowing I had no chance of getting tickets to their much-anticipated reunion in 2007, I had to settle for watching it on TV. And I'll let you into a little secret - ejecting the Blu-Ray, my ears were ringing that happy vibe they were nineteen years ago. Personally, Led Zeppelin isn't just one of the best bands in history but one of the most important and this gig, possibly their last, remains a fine epitaph to the originators of heavy metal.

The concert in question was at London's O2 arena in front of 20'000 to commemorate Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun who died in 2006. Led Zeppelin closed the gig, who still holds the record for the most number of ticket requests for a single concert (20 million). Vocalist Plant, axe-man Page and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones were joined on stage by the late John Bonham's son (Jason) on the drums and worked through a set consisting of hits from their extensive back catalogue including "Kashmir", "Black Dog", the epic "In My Time Of Dying" and their most cherished number, "Stairway To Heaven".

Even if hard rock isn't your thing, the impact of Led Zeppelin on music cannot be underestimated. With "Celebration Day", they were as close to their triumphant best as my generation are ever likely to see. Jason Bonham is a revelation, smashing the drums with just as much energy as his father while the rest of the group perform as though they never went away. Obviously, they're not as young as they used to be - Plant has lost something of his menacingly sexual swagger he used to possess but can still hold audiences in the palm of his hand. Who cares if you've already heard the songs before because Led Zeppelin are a band that demand to be heard live and in this format, they remain unstoppable. In an odd way, it felt like a privilege watching these genuine rock gods play some of the most recognisable tunes ever. I grew up listening to Zeppelin thanks to my father and if nostalgia has clouded my judgement then so be it. My ears were ringing long after the curtain had fallen, much like they were in 1995, and if that is a measure of how good a concert is then that is good enough for me.
