Led Zep reform
12th Sep 2007 | 15:21
Rumours of a Led Zeppelin reformation were confirmed today, as the band annnounced they're to reunite and play a show at the O2 arena on Monday, 26 November. Jason Bonham, son of original drummer John, will warm the drumstool.
Tickets for the event will be restricted to two per household and will be available by ballot. They'll cost a princely £125 each, and to be in with a chance, fans will need to register here. The show will be a tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records, who died last December.
The bill will also fature Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman & The Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini, who was the last artist that Ertegun signed before his death.
Led Zeppelin formally split in 1980, after Bonham's death from alcoholism. Despite Page and Plant collaborating together, the band have performed very few reunion gigs, and the last time they took to the stage together was following their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, 12 years ago.
The band of evermore? Or does this come a few years too late? We're excited about it anyway, though we don't rate our chances of getting tickets. Let us know your reaction at firstname.lastname@example.org...
