After a seemingly endless flood of rumors that stretch back who-knows-how-long, the official announcement of the Led Zeppelin Reunion show on November 26 at London’s O2 arena came Wednesday.
It is estimated that 20 Million people have registered for a chance to buy tickets to the show. Considering that the O2 holds 20,000, there are bound to be a lot of disappointed fans who aren’t lucky enough to score a ticket, which are said to be going for around $250!
This event is being billed as a one-time show and there is no word of any full-fledged reunion, although the band is reported to be “bonding well together.”
Also scheduled to perform the same night is Pete Townshend of The Who fame, Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones, Foreigner and The Rhythm Kings.
The Zeppelin portion of the event is scheduled to be about two hours long.
I guess the next round of rumors will be centered on the subject of whether this will be the start of a genuine reunion and reunion tour for the band. Perhaps that will depend a lot on whether they all manage to get along.
