Zep Reunion DVD
The band give the nod to live comeback DVD18 June 2008 - The mighty Led Zeppelin scooped the MOJO Best Live Act Award (16 June) for their one and only comeback gig in November 2007 - and have said it's likely that the DVD of the 02 Arena show will be released.
Firstly, guitarist Jimmy Page responded: "I hope so one day, yeah,” and later bassist John Paul Jones gave further confirmation, saying: “Yeah, I should think one day the DVD will come out, but there is no hurry to do it."
As to why there might be a delay, Jones explained: "It was a special occasion you know and we really wanted that just to be it really."
There has been much speculation as to whether Led Zeppelin will play any more shows in the future, which the band were swift in denying.
The latest rumours were that Jimmy Page mentioned a future tour to a newspaper after a recent Foo Fighters’ gig at Wembley (June 7) where Page and Jones appeared on stage with Dave Grohl’s band.
However, the prospect of a forthcoming tour was once again quashed by Jones’ firm response.
He told 6 Music: "Nobody spoke to the Daily Telegraph after the Foo Fighters’ show, sorry Daily Telegraph."
"Yeah I should think one day the DVD will come out."

The band were thrilled to receive the Best Live Act MOJO.
"It’s a lot of fun playing live shows, I really enjoy playing live," explained Jimmy Page, proving he has not lost his love of performing with Led Zeppelin.
He went on to explain how playing live with the band adds a whole new dimension for him, saying:
"It’s two different worlds, for me it is, for some other people it isn’t. They need to replicate exactly what they’ve done in the studio, but for me it has always been a question of having the license to be able to stretch the numbers out and put new colours into them. It’s a vehicle to be able to do that, it’s not restrictive."
