Led Zeppelin Is On for O2 Performance


Led Zeppelin finally announced a reunion gig to be held at London's O2 this November in tribute to the late Ahmet Etergun.

Ending the ongoing rumors of Led Zeppelin's reunion is the announcement of the band's one-off gig at London's O2. The legendary band will join The Who's Pete Townshend, fBill Wyman, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini of what promoter Harvey Goldsmith said to be "the largest demand for one show in history."

The concert which is held November 26 are meant in honor of the late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Etergun who died last December. "During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord," Zeppelin's vocalist Robert Plant said. "For us he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator."

Filling the drummer spot in the band is the late John Bonham's son, Jason. It's expected that the performance will last up to 2 hours. Tickets are sold for 125 pounds and are distributed through Ahmettribute.com. Goldsmith said all proceeds will benefit Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund that aids music scholarships for students at institutions in Britain, the United States and Turkey.

Beyond the gig, there's no plan of continuing the reunion. "The band members are getting along really well at the moment, but there's no talk of them making a new record off the back of this," Goldsmith said.
