Led Zepp To Reunite For Tribute Concert

Led Zepp To Reunite For Tribute Concert

Reports since Monday (June 25), suggest that Led Zeppelin are to reunite for a one-off gig, in tribute to the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

This would be only the third reunion for Led Zepp since founder member John Bonham died in 1980.

The previous two reunions were at Live Aid in 1985 and in 1988 for a show
celebrating Atlantic Record's 40th anniversary.

World Entertainment News Network have reported that Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones are planning to regroup, with John Bonham's son Jason filling in for his father.

Apparently they are waiting for the memorial concert date to be set before making a firm decision. Though WENN also reported that there is talk of a full reunion tour in 2008 if the one-off performance goes well.

A source close to the band has said: "Page, Plant and Jones spoke and agreed to do the memorial concert. They are waiting for a definite date.

"And no one can quite believe it, but during discussions about the concert they all gave the green light to a tour if it all does well and they don't all fall out."
