    Okay, this is NOT about bootlegs. This is supposed to be an official release. Of course, I heard about it from a German site that reviews Zep boots...

    Anyway, German music press and HMV in the UK have reported that a three- or four-DVD set of live Zep is scheduled for official release either November of this year or March 2003, depending on who you ask. I know all of this sounds pretty vague, but apparently HMV was taking pre-orders at one point. This set is supposed to include such gems as the '71 Royal Albert Hall show, Earl's Court '75, and the '79 Knebworth show.

    Man, would that be cool. No way would I pass up remastered, DVD-quality versions of those shows. Hell, they can even add in footage of old men climbing mountains and hippie lead singers riding horses if they want.

    Does anyone know anything more about this?

    There's really nothing to update. Some UK websites were offering pre-orders on it, but there wasn't even anything confirmed, and they dropped the links. But what is known is that Jimmy Page is working on it himself, and that there should be an accompanying CD release along with it, perhaps that might even come out first. But I wouldn't expect anything until 2003, which makes me sad but my wallet happy. [​IMG]

    Jimmy Page was in LA working on this set last month. When I met Robert Plant at The Who concert he told me this himself.

    Robert Plant is starting to look a lot like my Great Aunt Bertha.

    As long as it comes out, I don't care if it's 2002 or 3. I've waited this long, I can wait a bit longer.

    Still getting mileage out of my "Song Remains The Same" CDs...

    Thanks for the info and links! Now, why didn't I find that thread when I searched? Oh, well.

    Yeah, I saw Robert open for the Who here in Columbus. Great show, but the man is getting a little saggy about the jowls.

    The Tight but Loose website mentions a Japanese release date of a 2-disc CD on November 27th followed by the DVD in 2003. If Jimmy's running the show the DVD should be awesome.Hopefully Plant will look more like a "Golden God" and not like your Aunt Bertha[​IMG]

    Yes, TBL also mentioned that WEA said December 17 here in the US, but didn't make it clear if they were talking CD and/or DVD. Well, it's the right company and the date is a Tuesday, so let's hope there's some truth to this.

    Let's be clear about this though - there ain't no way that a Zeppelin release would come out first someplace other than the US. Page would be working with Warner on the DVD, and Atlantic on the CD, in the US. Everybody involved knows the US is where the money is to be made on this one (especially considering the success in the US of not just Zeppelin, but also DVD). Not saying that it HAS to come out in the US before anywhere else, but the US will be among the first to have it.

    But I'm sure WB/WEA want to get this out by Christmas, which makes me wonder if the fact that the rumored release date is also the last release date before Christmas, means this isn't more than just wishful thinking. Hope not.

    Will there be a region 1 release?

    I would be quite disappointed if there wasn't.

    On a Led Zeppelin message board, someone posted that the box set is coming out May 27th (yes, a Tuesday), and that it is being released by Image. [​IMG] This is in league with what Plant said. If you want to read the discussion, it's here. Here are the details:

    Well the rumored contents do sound awesome...but I too am inclined to take this news with a huge grain of salt. Oh well, I've waited this long for anything Live Zep related, I can wait a bit longer for confirmation (or denial) of those rumors. Do hope that Page gets around to releasing some more live stuff though.
