Led Zeppelin Reunite for One Night Only


Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham (son of the late John Bonham) will reunite to perform onstage - One Night Only - as Led Zeppelin.

The British band will play a one-off show at London's 22,000-capacity O2 arena on Nov. 26 as part of a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder and chairman emeritus Ahmet Ertegun, who died last December. The band recorded for Atlantic its entire career.

The Who's Pete Townshend, former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini will also perform at the event. Profits will benefit the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which provides scholarships to universities in the United States, United Kingdom and Ertegun's homeland, Turkey.

Tickets costing £125 ($254) will be allocated on a lottery basis TODAY through the Ahmettribute.com web site. (Good luck getting in this site today) There is a limit of 2 tickets per person.

Confirmation of the show, putting an end to several months of speculation, came at a press conference today at the O2 when the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, confirmed they would reunite onstage for just the third time in 27 years. The drummer for the evening will be Jason Bonham, son of the band's original drummer John Bonham, who died from a heart attack in 1980.

The concert will follow the release of a new Atlantic/Rhino two-disc, 24-track best-of set, "Mothership," due Nov. 13 in the United States.

Have they figured out a way to resurrect John Bonham? If they did then I am definately there!

Would really love to see them again. (it was sometime in the 70s in Jacksonville, FL, and Charlotte, NC)

Each member is uniquely talented. The songwriting, the versatility of the songs, Jimmy Page faster than the speed of light. And John Bonham was the best drummer ever... EVER, do you hear me? That double bass roll (that's often duplicated, never mastered) of his was thunderously primal. Rock and roll as it should be.

Oh yeah, you said it!
I was watching a Led Zep DVD just the other night. Amazingly good.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
