The surviving members of the rock band Led Zeppelin will reunite to headline a concert in London, England, on November 26. The show will be in memory of the late Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records, the label for which Zeppelin performed during their heyday. Ertegun died last December at age 83.
"During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord," Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant said Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. "For us he was Atlantic Records and remained a close friend and conspirator."
Original band members Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, and bassist/keyboard player John Paul Jones will be joined on drums by Jason Bonham, son of the band’s original drummer who died in 1980. After John Bonham’s death, the band broke up, playing only a couple of concerts during the 1980s, although Page and Plant worked together on other projects. Hence the concert reunion will be a big event for the group’s many admirers.
