Led Zeppelin's press conference to launch their new concert film Celebration Day has surfaced online – scroll down and click to watch the Q&A session in fill.

Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones - the surviving members of the legendary rock band - made a rare public appearance yesterday (September 21) to discuss the movie, which is a concert film of their 2007 show at the London's 02 Arena, and answered questions from the assembled press after screening the flick at the Odeon West End.

But when pressed on the possibility of coming together again for more shows, the band remained evasive. When asked if the 02 show had excited them enough to regroup once more, Jimmy Page answered, "Can I just ask you all if you enjoyed the film?"

When the journalist in question retorted by asking if he could have his question answered, Robert Plant replied, "That would be kiss and tell", and the band also completely dodged a question regarding "how crazy" the amount of money put on the table with regards to any future shows was.

Elsewhere in the Q&A session, asked whether they was any new music that has caught their attention, Plant declared that, "Mumford and Sons excite me, because they do have drama and they do have optimism, and they turn a crowd upside down."

The DVD release comes five years after their legendary 02 performance, which saw them reunite to honour late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. Asked why it had taken so long for the concert to get an official release, bass player John Paul Jones joked: "Five years is five minutes in Zeppelin time!"

The surviving members praised the performance at the show and in rehearsals of Jason Bonham - the son of their late drummer John Bonham, for a two-hour set, with Plant describing his knowledge of past Zeppelin performances as "encyclopaedic".

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

Celebration Day will screen in cinemas from October 17, following premieres on September 13. The film will then get a general DVD release on November 19. A deluxe edition will also include footage of the Shepperton rehearsals, as well as BBC news footage.

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'
'Kashmir'
'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."
