    Led Zeppelin Takes Flight, For One Night Only

    Led Zeppelin

    Lars Brandle and Tom Ferguson, London
    Billboard

    Legendary rock combo Led Zeppelin is reforming, but for one night only. The British band will play a one-off show at London's 22,000-capacity O2 arena on Nov. 26 as part of a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder and chairman emeritus Ahmet Ertegun, who died last December. The band recorded for Atlantic its entire career.

    The Who's Pete Townshend, former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini will also perform at the event. Profits will benefit the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which provides scholarships to universities in the United States, United Kingdom and Ertegun's homeland, Turkey.

    Tickets costing 125 ($254) will be allocated on a lottery basis through the Ahmettribute.com web site.

    Confirmation of the show, putting an end to several months of speculation, came at a press conference today (Sept. 13) at the O2 when the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, confirmed they would reunite onstage for just the third time in 27 years. The drummer for the evening will be Jason Bonham, son of the band's original drummer John Bonham, who died from a heart attack in 1980.

    The concert will follow the release of a new Atlantic/Rhino two-disc, 24-track best-of set, "Mothership," due Nov. 13 in the United States.

    Page, Plant and Jones initially reformed with Genesis' Phil Collins and Chic/Power Station sticksman Tony Thompson sharing drum duties for a performance at Live Aid in Philadelphia in 1985. In May 1988, Jason Bonham joined the three originals for another 'one-off" reunion at an Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert in New York.

    Plant and Page teamed in 1994 for an MTV special and subsequently toured globally and released two albums. Jones has also released two solo albums, although his post-Zeppelin work has largely concentrated on production and arranging.

    They might be boring to you, but they're not boring to me. Have you seen Stewart Copeland drum? He's like Animal from The Muppets! I'm not comparing energy. I was simply stating some reunion tours can be just as exciting as seeing the band when they were in their prime and sometimes even moreso.

    Considering the guys in The Police would all qualify for AARP (Andy Summers is 62 (!) and Sting & Stewart are in their 50's), I wouldn't sell them so short.
