Led Zeppelin set for reunion concert at O2 Arena London

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin is set to play a reunion concert at the O2 Arena in London on - New Date: December 10th, 2007 (pushed back from the original date of November 26, 2007 due to Jimmy Page fracturing his finger). Apparently over 25 million people registered for the ballot which was initially going to close on September 17th, but has now been extended until midday Wednesday September 19, 2007 due to crashed servers and high demand. Successful applicants will be notified 01 October 2007. Tickets are £125.00 + booking fee.

Led Zeppelin band members showing up for the gig at the O2 Arena include singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, and bassist John Paul Jones. This will be their first performance together in 19 years. Jason Bonham will replace his late father John Bonham on drums. This should be a major treat for all Led Zeppelin fans, and if you can't get a ticket, then hopefully there will be suitable at home viewing options.

Along with Led Zeppelin, other bands and artists set to play include Pete Townshend, Foreigner, Paolo Nutini and Bill Wyman And The Rhythm Kings.

The show is a tribute concert to the late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records and is being held to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which pays for university scholarships in the UK, US and Turkey. Ahmet Ertegun was a close friend and conspirator to Led Zeppelin.
