LED ZEPPELIN TO REUNITE FOR ERTEGUN TRIBUTE SHOW Rock legends LED ZEPPELIN will reunite for a one-off tribute concert for late music mogul AHMET ERTEGUN. After weeks of speculation the band announced the reunion - 27 years after they split - at a press conference in London on Wednesday (12Sep07). A statement reveals, "The incomparable Led Zeppelin will headline the tribute to the man who founded Atlantic Records in 1947. "Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will be joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham. "In addition, Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini, all touched by Ertegun's guiding hand over the years, will play on the night. Paolo was the final British artist that Ahmet mentored." The concert will take place at London's O2 Arena on 26 November (07). Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund which provides students with annual scholarships to universities in the U.K., USA and Turkey. In addition, a music scholarship open to all will be established at Ravensbourne College in Britain. Led Zeppelin singer Plant says, "During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord. For us he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator - this performance stands alone as our tribute to the work and the life of our long standing friend." Ertegun died last December at the age of 82. (MEH&IG/WN/MT) Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin
