After putting out teasers all week, Led Zeppelin have finally officially announced that they will be releasing a film version of their 2007 reunion gig.

Titled Celebration Day, the film will feature footage from the band's reunion gig in aid of the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

Performing at the London's O2 Arena, the band's founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham - the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a two-hour set, which included classics 'Whole Lotta Love,' 'Rock And Roll,' 'Kashmir,' and 'Stairway To Heaven'.

As many as 20 million people applied for tickets to the gig on December 10, 2007 - the band’s first headline show in 27 years – but only 18,000 were lucky enough to win in the lottery.

Celebration Day will show in cinemas from October 17, following premieres on September 13. The film will then get a general DVD release on November 19.

The tracklisting for Celebration Day is as follows:

'Good Times Bad Times'
'Ramble On'
'Black Dog'
'In My Time Of Dying'
'For Your Life'
'Trampled Under Foot'
'Nobody’s Fault But Mine'
'No Quarter'
'Since I’ve Been Loving You'
'Dazed And Confused'
'Stairway To Heaven'
'The Song Remains The Same'
'Misty Mountain Hop'
'Whole Lotta Love'
'Rock And Roll'

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has previously ruled out another reunion of the band, saying in a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone: "I've gone so far somewhere else that I almost can't relate to it... It's a bit of a pain in the pisser to be honest. Who cares? I know people care, but think about it from my angle - soon, I'm going to need help crossing the street."
