The Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert has kicked off London’s O2 Arena tonight (December 10).
Anticipation for tonight’s show has been unprecented, with an estimated 20 milion people attempting to register for pairs of tickets which only 9,000 finally won in a lottery style ballot earlier this year.
Previously confirmed on the bill tonight are Foreigner, Paul Rodgers and Paolo Nutini who will be performing with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings as the ‘house band’. All of the artists have been signed to Atlantic Records over the years. Suprise guests have also been promised as the night progresses.

A longer more in-depth review will follow in the next issue of UNCUT magazine.
