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.

You can read Uncut’s first review of the show by clicking here now for John Mulvey’s Wild Mercury Sound blog.

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

We’ll have more pictures, reports and fan reactions from the Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert from the morning (December 11).
