Led Zep Confirm Reunion Gig

By Cernig

The BBC is reporting that Led Zeppelin have confirmed they will play a reunion concert in London on 26 November.

As I posted a couple of weeks back, the three surviving members of the band will be joined by John Bonham's son, Jason, on drums.
Harvey Goldsmith, who is promoting the concert, said that he had originally asked the three band members to play a 30-minute set.

"Jason Bonham became part of the catalyst, and they did a week's rehearsal," he said. "We had a meeting and Robert turned around and said we're not going to do 30 minutes, we're doing to do a whole set."

"It's a day I never thought would come," said Dave Lewis, editor of Led Zeppelin fan magazine Tight But Loose. "The four people on stage in 2007 - wake me up, I'm dreaming!"
The tickets will cost around $250 each and be allocated by lottery.

I hope that the gig "plants" the seed for a full tour and maybe even new material from a resurgent Zep.
