Page-Plant concert movie playing one day this month; Reunion's 10th anniversary heralded with 'Unledded' in theaters Oct. 26

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

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the television premiere of Unledded, MTV's special reuniting Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. The 1994 show contained musical segments filmed two months earlier in England, Wales and Morocco, with Eastern-influenced remakes of Led Zeppelin songs such as "No Quarter" and "Nobody's Fault but Mine." Page and Plant enjoyed additional support from four musicians from Marrakech, an Egyptian ensemble and the London Metropolitan Orchestra.

Home video and CD releases captured their performances, but Unledded has never been released on DVD or screened inside a movie theater. All that changes this month to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's reunion. The Unledded DVD was released earlier this week in the United Kingdom. The U.S. release will be Tuesday, Oct. 26, along with a reissue of the No Quarter album including songs previously not included on CD.

But the big news is the theatrical premiere of Unledded in 44 selected cities across the United States that day. According to promotional material, "These original performances have now been personally re-mixed by Jimmy Page and are brought to you -- one night only -- in 5.1 surround audio."
