Los Angeles, Sept., 2012) – On December 10, 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 two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin.

Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalog including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery.

The film of Celebration Day will see a worldwide theatrical release by Omniverse Vision on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on October 17.
The theatrical screenings will follow premieres in London, Los Angeles, New York, and other major cities. Tickets for the public screenings will be available on September 13 via

The Keith Emerson Band, Three Fates Project
Release Date: October 30th 2012
Three Fates Project

The Keith Emerson Band • Münchner Rundfunkorchester
Keith Emerson • Marc Bonilla • Terje Mikkelsen
Three Fates Project is unlike any previous album by keyboard legend Keith Emerson and pre-eminent rock guitarist and composer Marc Bonilla. It is a unique and dynamic inseparable hybrid of orchestral and rock unlike any that's ever been heard before.

Keith’s music has taken yet another step in a new direction with this album. Keith is truly a modern day composer, which is why Alberto Ginastera and Aaron Copland thought so highly of him - they recognized him as one of their kind.

The album contains both orchestral re-workings of ELP classics such as “Tarkus,” “The Endless Enigma,” “Abaddon's Bolero,” as well as Aaron Copland's “Fanfare For The Common Man,” Alberto Ginastera's “Malambo” and "American Matador" from Marc Bonilla’s second solo album, as well as brand new compositions: Emerson’s “After All Of This” and Marc Bonilla’s “Walking Distance,” and “The Mourning Sun.”
The album was recorded in Munich and Los Angeles over a nine- month period starting in the summer of 2011. It features the 70-piece Münchner Rundfunkorchester, conducted by world-reknown Maestro, Terje Mikkelsen, who has been often referred to as "of of the few conductors with a rock 'n roll soul" and the Keith Emerson Band with veteran Emerson bassist, Travis Davis, and drummer, Troy Luccketta, from the multi-platinum band, Tesla.
