LED ZEPPELIN Fans Desperately Awaiting Official Confirmation Of Reunion Concert - Sep. 7, 2007

According to Independent.ie, six digits on the official web site of LED ZEPPELIN was all it took yesterday to fuel fevered hopes that the longest-awaited and most-rumored reunion in rock history is about to be announced — and spark a huge scramble for tickets.

Fan web sites were buzzing with speculation that first full-scale concert in 27 years — in the form of a one-off appearance in November at the O2 venue in Greenwich, south-east London — would be held on November 13 after the home page of LedZeppelin.com carried the American-style date 11.13.07 without further explanation. The date is a day after the [European] release of "Mothership", the band's latest greatest hits collection. [Editor's note: November 13 is the U.S. release date of "Mothership".]

A source said: "It is going to happen. We are finalizing the precise timing but basically the guys have agreed they want to do it. It will be a one-off."

It is thought the concert in the former Millennium Dome will be a charity event in memory of Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records, the jazz and blues label that signed LED ZEPPELIN in 1968 without ever seeing them perform, apparently on the advice of the singer Dusty Springfield.

But sources said claims that the band will also play two gigs in America — one in Florida and one in New York — were wide of the mark.

  • 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.'"
