Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page will introduce music from his brand new remasters of 'Led Zeppelin', 'II' and 'III' tonight (May 21).

Page will present music live from the L'Olympia Theatre in Paris at 7.30pm (BST), which is where the companion audio for 'Led Zeppelin' was recorded 45 years ago. Click below to watch the live broadcast.

This will be followed by a question and answer session drawn from questions submitted by fans across the world. Finally, the brand new video for 'Whole Lotta Love' will receive its world premiere to wrap up the night.

Meanwhile Zeppelin look set to face legal action over claims that their 1971 song 'Stairway To Heaven' copied a 1968 track by a band called Spirit.

Lawyer Francis Alexander Molofiy is attempting to block the forthcoming re-release of 'Led Zeppelin IV', stating that his client – the late Randy California, who played guitar in Spirit – should be given a writing credit on the track, as it resembles Spirit's 1968 song 'Taurus'. He has said he will be seeking a copyright infringement lawsuit.

Mark Andes of Spirit says Led Zeppelin would have heard 'Taurus' when the two bands were on tour together in the late 1960s. "It would typically come after a big forceful number and always got a good response. They would have seen it in that context," he said. Speaking about the time lapse between the alleged plagiarism and legal action, he added: "The clarity seems to be a present-day clarity, not at the time of infringement. I can't explain it. It is fairly blatant, and note for note. It would just be nice if the Led Zeppelin guys gave Randy a little nod. That would be lovely." California's family stated that they waited so long to take legal action as they could not previously afford it.
