Over the course of a few days in mid-November, we can expect mammoth live albums/DVDs dropping from hard rock titans Led Zeppelin and AC/DC (their first in decades).

On 10 December 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a 2 hour tour de force of blues rock ‘n’ roll.

Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John, to perform 16 songs.

20 million people applied for tickets to the band’s first headline show in 27 years. Only 18 000 witnessed the spectacle (winners of a worldwide ticket lottery).

The film of the Celebration Day concert will be screened internationally on 17 October. Tickets are available at ledzeppelin.com.

Huntress Thompson

In the vacuum between dark and light, Siouxsie Sioux and Emmylou Harris, Amelie and Travis Bickle, Huntress Thompson is an idiot lost, and reporting from the field. If you’re after irrational rants about cupcakes and Johnny Cash (and you probably aren’t), she’s grumpy, but she’s your girl.
