Ballots For The Led Zep Reunion Are In

The registration period to get tickets for the Led Zeppelin reunion at the [b]Tribute To Ahmet Ertegun[/b] concert has now closed.

The announcement for the concert was made by promoter [b]Harvey Goldsmith[/b] last Wednesday (September 12) and since the ballot for tickets website www.ahmetttribute.com went live at 4pm that day - over 1000,000,000 page impressions were made by fans trying to get through.

It has been revealed that just over 1 million people have now registered for tickets, for the 20,000 capacity 02 Arena, which will be headlined by legendary rockers [b]Led Zeppelin[/b].

Uncut.co.uk estimates that as the tickets will be sold in pairs - that gives us a one in a hundred chance of being chosen.

Goldsmith said thank you in a statement this afternoon, saying: "We are absolutely overwhelmed with the number of hits received on www.ahmettribute.com. In the first day alone, we received an unprecedented number of hits that literally knocked the website out. Over the last 7 days we have recorded over 1000 million hits. This response is amazing and from it we have had over 1 million registrations. We would like to thank all the fans for their support and we hope that all those fortunate to be successful will keep the tickets out of the hands of touts."

Successful applicants for the [b]Tribute To Ahmet Ertegun[/b] concert will be notified by October 1. The concert takes place on November 26.
