Celebration Day will air four times on Labor Day
AXS TV celebrates the 47th anniversary of Led Zeppelin’s first live show this Labor Day, Sepember 7th, with “Whole Lotta Love,” a nine-hour television event dedicated to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. Jason Bonham, musician and son of Led Zeppelin’s late drummer John Bonham, will host as AXS TV airs the acclaimed concert film Celebration Day four times in succession starting at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT.
Bonham, who performs with Led Zeppelin as their drummer in the film, will guide viewers through the day with stories about his dad, playing with the band, and his behind-the-scenes experience about the group.
Released in theatres in 2012, Celebration Day features Led Zeppelin as they hit the O2 Arena in London to celebrate the reunion of surviving members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones. Led Zeppelin performs “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock and Roll,” “Kashmir” and the signature song that solidified them in rock history, “Stairway to Heaven.” The concert will encore at 1:15 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. ET and 5:45 p.m. ET.
“It’s a great privilege and an honor to be even in the same breath as my father,” said Bonham. “To get a chance to play with these peers, with the band as well, you’re gonna see what was truly one of the greatest days of my life.”
