IT’S OFFICIAL: LED ZEPPELIN WILL REUNITE FOR ONE-OFF GIG IN LONDON
You heard it here first at MetalSucks last week, and now Blabbermouth has confirmed it: the surviving members of Led Zeppelin will reform for a special show at London’s 22,000-capacity O2 arena on Monday, November 26 as part of a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who died last December. As suspected, Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, will play drums. The bill also includes Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman & The Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.
Tickets cost £125 each (approximately $254) and will be allocated on a lottery basis through the Ahmettribute.com web site. Names will be chosen at random. There will be seating and standing tickets and fans will be able to express a preference at the web site. Due to expected unprecedented demand, tickets will be limited to two per successful applicants per household. Tickets will not be available from any other source. Please do not take adverts or publicise any company who claims to have tickets. They will not be given any.
Profits will benefit the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which provides scholarships to universities in the United States, United Kingdom and Ertegun’s homeland, Turkey.
