Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day” – One Night Only at the Ziegfeld in NYC.

You’d think after meeting Morrissey, my night would not get any better (or hell, the decade for that matter), but it did.  Thanks to a tip (much obliged, Joe!) I found out that Led Zeppelin was in New York to attend the premiere of their concert film “Celebration Day” at the Ziegfeld Theatre, which is footage of their one off 2007 reunion gig.  Knowing (and I was right) that the band would be utterly mobbed, I still decided to stick around to see them in person because how often do you get to see Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones in the same place at the same time?  Not very often!  Unfortunately, all the members of Led Zeppelin were surrounded by bodyguards and ran straight to their cars, so these are possibly the worst quality photos I’ve ever posted, but what can ya do?

Also spotted at the premiere were artist Jeff Koons, Paul Stanley from Kiss, Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joan Jett and Stevie Nicks.  Whoa!  What a night!

See them after the jump.

Again, these photos are pretty bad, but it was dark and the band did not stop moving, so I view it as “this is better than nothing.”
