A slight hope for Led Zeppelin's reunion has come brighter as concert promoters held up an advertisement for tickets and travel packages costing as high as 369 pounds. The show that is to take place in London's O2 arena this autumn is rumored to be the band's first reunion gig since 1988.
Rumors may spread but Harvey Goldsmith warned people not to be led into thinking this is the real Led Zeppelin event. He said, "There have been at least four events advertised which I suspect either don't exist or where no tickets are on sale or indeed dates finalized."
"There are NO packages or tickets for some the events advertised at all, nor do some of the events even exist," he continued. "We are concerned that the public will be fleeced. The bottom line is that unless official adverts have appeared for concerts, tickets are not on sale. Do not buy from unauthorized sources."
This Is London reported that a cheaper package from the Premier Entertainments company, including a night in a four-star hotel, is available for 269 pounds. If yet a reunion will happen, an official announcement will be held anytime soon.
It's expected that the late John Bonham's son Jason will join the three surviving members - John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page - to play the gig. The band was also rumored to be releasing a double CD greatest hits compilation called 'Mothership' on November 11, which may be in coincidence to the concert.
Post Bonham's death in 1980, there has been two brief reunions. First one is at Live Aid concert in Philadelphia in 1985 and at Atlantic Records' 40th Anniversary three years later.
