It's Official: Led Zeppelin Show is on!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2007 at 12:13 PM

Last week Led Zeppelin fans got tossed around in a giant tease-a-thon as music sites repeatedly hinted at a Led Zep reunion show. Well today the official types made their official announcement: Led Zeppelin will indeed reform (meaning “Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will be joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham”) for a single show on Monday, November 26th at 02 Arena in London. (If someone would like to fly me there, by the way, my bags are already packed.) The theme for the concert is a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records.

But wait, there’s more – along with Plant and Page, ticket holders will also get performances Pete Townshend! Bill Wyman!...and, um, Foreigner? And Paolo Nutini? Yeah, whatever.

Tickets are £125 and fans can only buy tickets through a ballot available through www.ahmettribute.com (the link wasn't working when I last tried it).

For all you Nutini fans unclear about who exactly this “Led Zeppelin” is, here’s a bit about the rock gods from the press release: “Led Zeppelin are simply the ultimate rock band. They produced some of the greatest albums in recording history and are constantly considered amongst the greatest popular musicians of all time, both collectively and individually.” Yup. That just about says it. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
