Best Concert Video. Ever.
on October 19, 2017
I have many videos of Led Zep concerts from the 70s as well as many critically acclaimed concert videos such as the Last Waltz, and I cherish this video much more than any of them. First and foremost the high definition video and lossless audio quality is incomparably better. Second, and more importantly for me, the recording is very moving. Knowing the story of the band and the journey to get there to that stage on that day, it really adds to the experience to see the joy on everyone's faces as they play. It was obviously an emotional experience for all of them to have Jason Bonham there, and that emotion is palpable. Jason Bonham's own gratitude is obvious and touching. Adding to all this is the fact that, despite the length of time since they had last performed together, they really nailed it. The musicianship is more professional than in their glory years, and invested with so much more feeling that my wife and I find ourselves going back to this BluRay over and over again.
The Guinness Book of World Records says that 20 million people applied to buy tickets for this one show, setting an all-time record. Purchase the Celebration Day video in BluRay, watch it on a decent home theatre system with the volume turned up, and I promise you will see why.
