Five years after they reunited at the O2 Arena in London, millions of Led Zeppelin‘s fans who didn’t get to see the historic show may soon be able to enjoy the set (legally) for the first time, as a double DVD, double CD package will reportedly be out by Christmas.

‘That Metal Show’ co-hosts Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine have both recently publicly alluded to something big coming from the Zeppelin camp this holiday season, and now we may know what it is. A report on Belgian site rtbf.be (via FindingZoso) claims ‘Led Zeppelin: Live at London’s O2 Arena’ will be released in November.

Tickets for the one-night only show were more valuable than gold, with millions hoping to land one of just 18,000 seats inside the arena. There’s been rumors of a commercial release for years, with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones admitting in 2008 that they weren’t in a hurry to put something out.  ”It was a special occasion you know and we really wanted that just to be it really,” Jones said (quote via Led-Zeppelin.org). A release seemed all but certain early in 2011.

Page, Robert Plant, Jones and John Bonham’s son Jason opened the Dec. 10 show with ‘Good Times, Bad Times’ and spent two hours playing hits. ‘Black Dog,’ ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven’ were highlights with the band not shying away from the longer, more difficult tunes. They closed the show with ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Rock and Roll’ as an encore.

Fan and critical reviews were overwhelmingly positive. The show was arranged to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund. Ertegun was the founder of Atlantic Records. “We did it, Ahmet,” Plant said after singing ‘Stairway to Heaven” (quote via the BBC).
