Zep Reunion Nov 26 '07

Well looks like it's gonna happen, the reunion that's been
talked about for eons, but for 1 night only. Oh well
i'm glad the boys are gonna do it :) dancing days are here
again for sure. Lets hope that it's also a pay per view
since so many fans will not be able to attend this event.
A DVD would be nice too.


The surviving members of LED ZEPPELIN have confirmed
they 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.

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 the 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.

The bill also includes PETE TOWNSHEND, BILL WYMAN &
THE RHYTHM KINGS, FOREIGNER and PAOLO NUTINI.

Founding members Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant
(vocals) and John Paul Jones (bass) will be joined by
Jason Bonham, son of the late John Bonham, on drums.

Commented Robert Plant: "During the ZEPPELIN years,
Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and
accord. For us he WAS Atlantic Records and remained a
close friend and conspirator — this performance stands
alone as our tribute to the work and the life of our
long-standing friend."

ZEPPELIN reformed for Live Aid in 1985 with Phil
Collins on drums. Page and Plant have played together
sporadically since then. A further — brief —
reformation occurred at Atlantic Records' 40th
anniversary bash in New York in 1988 with Jason Bonham
on drums.

Three weeks prior to ZEP's O2 show, Jimmy Page will be
honoured as the Living Legend at the Classic Rock Roll
Of Honour, Classic Rock magazine’s third annual award
show. This year the awards will take place on Monday,
November 5 at London’s prestigious Landmark Hotel.

ZEPPELIN's O2 show is being organised by legendary
promoter Harvey Goldsmith.

I sure do hope that a DVD will become available. The reality is that if they don't release a DVD or have the event up on pay per view, the majority of Zeppelin fans will only hear about this great occurence
