Tuesday, August 14, 2007 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

After much speculation Led Zeppelin have announced they are to reform to perform at a one off concert at The O2 on 26th November. The concert will be a celebration of the life and work of Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records and much missed mentor to some of the greatest names in music.

Line up:
Led Zeppelin
Pete Townshend
Bill Wyman
Rhythm Kings
Foreigner
Paolo Nutini

Profits from this amazing show will go to the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund which provides students with annual scholarships to universities in the UK, USA and Turkey. In addition, a music scholarship open to all will be established at Ravensbourne College in the UK.

The incomparable Led Zeppelin will headline the tribute to the man who founded Atlantic Records in 1947. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will be joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham.

In addition, Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini, all touched by Ertegun’s guiding hand over the years, will play on the night. Paolo was the final British artist that Ahmet mentored.

Due to the anticipated overwhelming demand for this concert, tickets will be available by ballot only. All tickets are priced at £125.
