sources close to the situation say that Led Zeppelin owns the rights to the concert, and that the band's management requested the removal of any clips of the event.

In these cases I often wonder if the band thesmelves really care, or if it's just the legal eagles looking to protect 'Teh Int3ll3ctual Propertyz'. It's not like Zeppelin is short on money. And it's not like these clips will cut into the DVD sales ... the thing is going to sell millions of copies for ****'s sakes and if anything such clips only increase anticipation (I know it did for me).

On the other hand, maybe they don't want the ****** recording quality of most of these clips to taint the quality of the performances themselves. In other words they don't want the material out there in a ****** format, and that's fair enough I would say. Releasing a few high-quality previews on the official Zeppelin site or WMG's site would go a long way in undercutting crummy pirated footage.

On a somewhat cheerier note, I wonder if a portion of the DVD sales will go to whatever charity the concert was supposed to benefit.

It's not totally unexpected that the clips would get pulled offline.  Zeppelin's late manager, Peter Grant, was incredibly protective of the band and their rights.  He was even known for going into record shops and personally confiscating Zep bootlegs back in the day.  This seems like the modern embodiment of the way he did business and represented the band.

The cell phone videos aren't going to eat into DVD sales by a longshot.  I think the band's concern is more about the quality of the sounds and images and their desire to give the fans a proper presentation...and to get paid.

Actually I was surprised they stayed up as long as they did. Maybe they wanted to wait for everyone to post what they were going to, before they bothered sending out the warning.

 :o First time seeing those clips. That version of Dazed And Confused is amazing. Can't wait for the DVD.

According to Gigwise.com, rock legends Led Zeppelin have confirmed that their recent reunion concert in London will be released on DVD.
Guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones revealed the news while speaking at an awards ceremony in London. However, Jones also said that the band is in no hurry to release the DVD.
Over a million people tried to register for tickets to the band’s reunion show at the O2 Arena in December 2007. Apporximately 18,000 lucky fans watched the concert.

I was wondering when this was going to happen.  You had to figure that it would.  Especially in light of the rumored tour offers that were thrown their way, and apparently Plant shot it down.

Interesting news, although I haven't seen more information regarding the above mentioned information.  All sorts of speculation regarding the material that would be included as well as a release date have yet to be stated (unless I've missed it).

The unofficial dvd will have to do for now.  I finally ordered and received the new Led Zeppelin book "Sonic Boom" today which can be ordered at  http://www.enzepplopedia.com/  Who would've known that Led Zeppelin once performed a concert in which they shared a concert bill with a band called the "Ladybirds" in which the women played their instruments topless!  :o  For those interested there is an image of the women playing topless on page 107.  Although the image in the ad is only a couple of inches you'll get the idea!  ;D

Please refrain from any comments rearranging the words I typed above into strange sexual connotations!  :P

The most disappointing news since Paul Rodgers joined Queen.
