The Led Zeppelin show scheduled for November 26 at London’s O2 Arena has been pushed back to December 10 due to a rehearsal mishap that left guitar legend Jimmy Page with a broken finger. Not the type of injury a man in that line of work needs right now.
In accordance with doctor’s orders that require page to rest is finger while it heals, the O2 show had to been pushed back at least two weeks.
Naturally, the band is not happy with the situation and Page issued a statement that said: “I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks. However, Led Zeppelin have always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal, and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to.”
No details were provided with regard to exactly how Page managed to break his finger, but perhaps the rumor mill will turn out some speculation soon.
As expected, the tickets for the November 26 show will be honored on December 10. Surely, this will be problematic for some fans but there appears to be little that could be done to remedy it. Hopefully, Page will be back in fine form by the time the 10th of December rolls around.
