|Led Zeppelin to Reunite - Thursday, September 13, 2007 at 03:10
|It was announced today that Led Zeppelin will be reuniting for a one-time appearance at a concert in memory of Ahmet Ertegun, co-founder of Atlantic Records. It will be their first appearance together in 19 years. The concert will be on November 26th, at the O2 venue in London, on the banks of the River Thames. Original members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will headline the concert with the late John Bonham's son, Jason, on drums.
The concert, a tribute to Ertegun, who died in December at age 83, will also feature the Who's Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, Foreigner and young Scottish singer Paolo Nutini - the last British act Ertegun signed. Robert Plant was quoted as saying:
"During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord. For us he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator."
According to promoter Harvey Goldsmith this is a one time show and there was no discussion of any shows after that.
All proceeds from the show will go to the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund to establish music scholarships for students at schools in Britain, the United States and Turkey.
