Jimmy Page Hints That Zeppelin Could Do More Shows

[b]Jimmy Page[/b] has today hinted in an interview that he would possibly consider playing some more [b]Led Zeppelin[/b] reunion shows.

The band are currently set to perform a highly anticipated one-off reunion concert at London's 02 Arena on December 10, as part of a tribute to the late Atlantic Records' founder Ahmet Ertegun.

Page who's fractured finger has delayed the show by two weeks, told [b]The Mirror[/b] newspaper: "At the moment, I'm told we're doing one gig.

Speaking about the band getting together for the first time in years, the guitarist said: "We had the first rehearsal in May or June just to get together and see how we got on and whether it would be a goer, and straight away it was boom!"
