Let's have a party; DVD to receive premiere screening treatment

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

Get ready for the ultimate rock experience: the chance to hang out with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin and celebrate the band's landmark live DVD and CD sets.

On May 27, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones will premiere these long-awaited releases at New York's Loews 34th Street Theatre. The red carpet screening will feature two hours of rare and spectacular Led Zeppelin live concert footage taken from their upcoming five-hour DVD set. The screening will be followed by an exclusive, invitation-only VIP party with members of Led Zeppelin.

And you could be there! One lucky winner plus three of his or her friends will get to attend that VIP screening and exclusive VIP party. The contest, which ends May 18, is airing at radio stations and Web sites in more than 125 cities, so check local listings for dates and times. One additional screen at the theater will be reserved for second-prize winners, who can win tickets by listening to New York's Q 104.3 FM. Click here for contest rules and to enter.
