They can still do it...2007's London O2 Arena appearance by Zeppelin was probably their last and, in my very humble opinion, their best. 14 songs over a two hour period only prove what a gift that Led Zeppelin is to the rock and roll genre...from the opening beats of Good Times Bad Times to the finale Rock and Roll, they show why they are considered the BEST rock and roll band of all time...Jimmy Page works the guitars, Page can still hit the high notes, John Paul Jones is rock solid on bass and keyboards and Jason Bonham channels his dad. I've seen many of the films they've released over their lifespan and this is, by far, their best effort. A MUST SEE for all you Zeppelin fans out there and for those of you who have only heard their studio stuff, you have to see this to understand just how BIG these guys are...

I never saw Zeppelin live, since I was 14 when John Bonham died. But I've seen Plant solo and Jimmy Page (ARMS & Firm), and Page with Plant a number of times over the years. Plant's voice was fading, and Page's playing appeared really impaired. I thought I was going to see a shadow of what they once were. Not so!. Plant's voice and Page's playing were incredible. Plant said they were too old to tour again, and didn't have the energy that they had as young men. Didn't look that way to me. They are 5 years older now, so why not do a limited tour with plenty of rest. They could simulcast each as well, so everyone can see it. Again, incredible concert! Plus for a true Zep fan, their set list didn't include just the hits.

What a thrill to see Page, Plant, and Jones on stage again, with Bonham's son. A great performance - unbelievable how good they were on stage.I was worried that 30 years would show in the performance, but if it did, it was only in the sense that they were better. Tons of energy. Plant is still a golden god, just a little more grizzled. Led Zep had a few unfortunate public performances since Bonham's death, but this concert makes up for that in spades. The movie was a celebration, but also a farewell to an era, and I was both thrilled and a little melancholy that it was likely their final hurrah. But it's the best hurrah they could have offered.

Being a Led-head since 1969 my wife and I were very excited to see this movie - it did not disappoint! Songs performed were a best-of their whole catalog, (incl. SWTH...yuk) The concert was done in 2007 thus was tamer than "Song Remains the Same" and the DVD collection that Jimmy Page released a few years ago, but still a great performance. The Sound was loud enough to rock with, but not bone crushing loud... *but* the surround sound was very light and did not have the echos and reverb (or crowd ambiance) I expected. For gearheads, Page did not have *all* of his guitars (only 3 Les Pauls and the double-SG), and his amp backline was limited to 4 Oranges, 2 Plexis, and 2 Petersbergs (Russian semi-marshal clones); however he did have a modern Thermin and a monster custom pedalboard! My normally sedate wife swooned, "Jimmy is *the* Guitar God""!

Amazing performance by one of the greatest rock bands known around the world. This will be out on DVD soon, but DO NOT miss the chance to see this on the big screen with a few of your closest friends. Throughout the movie I kept thinking that these guys could really have made a fortune if they had just toured one more time, but when it was all done I realized that it will never happen again and what this film represents is their final gift to the true diehard fans.
