On December 7, 2007, the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin,
Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones, agreed to reunite with Jason Bonham in honor of the late Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records.
This was a charity event to support music in schools in many parts of the world. Over 20 million people applied through a public lottery to obtain tickets to this performance. 18,000 lucky winners were able to get a ticket to this show through a random computer drawing.
The concert footage of the Led Zeppelin performance during this Ahmet Ertegun Tribute
from the O2 in London will be released as a film this October, 2012.
Tickets to the film go on sale TODAY September 13, 2012, for the movie that will open in London, Los Angeles and New York
and also be released in over 1,500 theaters globally on October 17, 2012.
DVD and CD recordings are due to be released on November 19th for purchase as well.
Tickets to the film are on sale NOW - Sept. 13.

This single event is the inspiration for building this website. I was lucky enough to obtain a ticket through the random lot and went to London as a field correspondant for
ROCK 102.1 in Springfield, MA. The story of my travel for this life changing experience, to take part in music history, can be read here.
