Led Zepplin: The Song Remains the Same [Blu-ray, HD DVD Box Art] UPDATE: This story just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Though the official word Warner was that this release has been postponed (and indeed it has been pulled down by several major retailers, including Amazon and DVD Empire), other retailers report receiving stock from their distributors and some lucky consumers have already got their hands on the discs. We've contacted Warner for clarification and will update this post with more details as they come in.

It looks like fans of Led Zeppelin's 'The Song Remains the Same' may have to wait a while longer for the concert classic to hit high-def disc.

subsequently pushed back the next-gen editions of 'The Song Remains the Same' to today, December 11. On Monday, however, the studio confirmed to retailers that the title has been delayed yet again -- this time without a new release date.

Warner didn't provide any official reason for the latest delay, but a studio rep has not issued any statement that the title has been permanently cancelled, and so we expect to get a new release date sometime in the new year.

At press time, it wasn't clear whether any of the specs or features might change between now and the disc's eventual release date, but we'll certainly keep you posted.

For now, we've moved 'Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same' to the "Release Dates Postponed" section of our Blu-ray Release Schedule and HD DVD Release Schedule.

You can discuss the delay in the dedicated threads we've set up for the the title in our Forums area -- click the following links to discuss the 'Song Remains the Same' Blu-ray release and the 'Song Remains the Same' HD DVD release.
