Led Zeppelin Demand For Tickets Crashes Site

Ticket demand for the forthcoming one-off Led Zeppelin reunion show has already caused the official registration site to crash.

The band are due to play London's 02 Arena on November 26 - a tribute night dedicated to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, who died last year.

Concert promoter [b]Harvey Goldsmith[/b], who is putting on the event, said "Don't forget it's not just fans in the UK, they were massive around the world - I expect there will be huge demand from Japan, Australia and especially the United States. He predicted that the gig would cause the "largest demand for one show in history".

The only way to register for tickets, which cost £125, is to go to www.ahmettribute.com to be in the ballot. Registartion closes on Monday lunchtime (September 17).

There will be around 18,000 tickets allocated after this date.
