It's only one show right now. A full-blown tour has never been confirmed, and if you click on the link to the story that started this thread, you'll see it no longer mentions tour, just the one show.

Full Press Release:

TRIBUTE TO AHMET ERTEGUN
NOVEMBER 26, 2007
O2 ARENA, LONDON

Harvey Goldsmith Announces A Tribute Concert To The Late Ahmet Ertegun In
Aid Of The Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund


LONDON — One of the most eagerly awaited concerts of the decade will
celebrate the life and work of Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records
and much missed mentor to some of the greatest names in music.

Profits from this amazing show will go to the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund
which provides students with annual scholarships to universities in the UK,
USA and Turkey. In addition, a music scholarship open to all will be
established at Ravensbourne College in the UK.

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.

It will be a tribute from UK artists that Ertegun worked with in a 60 year
career.

Tickets - £125

Due to the anticipated overwhelming demand for this concert, tickets will
be available by ballot only.

Fans should register their names at www.ahmettribute.com

Names will then be chosen at random. There will be seating and standing
tickets and fans will be able to express a preference at the website.

Due the expected unprecedented demand, tickets will be limited to 2 per
successful applicants per household.

Tickets will not be available from any other source. Please do not take
adverts or publicise any company who claims to have tickets. They will not
be given any. Please advise the public not the purchase tickets from any
unscrupulous source.

I don't think there will be a tour but perhaps like Pink Floyd had said, that they wouldn't rule out the possibility of doing other one-offs for charity. We can only hope.


And what's with them doing the O2 with 20k seats and not going all out with a 90k Wembley gig? Surely that would put in more money to the charity. Weather would be the only answer I could come up with.

I'd consider going to that, but maybe not at 250 a pop.

However:
19 years later, maybe he's learned a few things. And if not, that's ok too. I'd rather it be in the family, as John would have wanted, than Dave Grohl or any other of 1000 drummers take the kit.
Then it's about then money, this feels more about the family that is Led Zeppelin.
He plays drums on a Little Steven album called "Born Again Savage." Adam played bass on it as well. It was released in 1999, I'm not sure if it was recorded earlier than that, and just released in 1999, or if it was recorded in 1999. There was a break between Pop and ATYCLB albums.

A full tour would be killer!

Weather shouldnt discount Wembley these days - it has a roof!

I only hope they will still have the energy to do the songs proper justice live. I'd hate to see them reduced to a slowed down version depending on backup singers and musicians. If that's what they're going to do I hope they stay home. If they can still rock, take it on the road!

I was thinking that too. All the seats are covered with the retractable roof thingy so my logic was that the ambient temperature inside but people watch football matches all the time through winter....I dunno. Perhaps it comes down to financial corporate stuff.

Well, whatever the show, wherever they play, that will be one HEAVILY bootlegged (do people still use that word?) show! And I for one can't wait to hear it!

Dammit, trying to log in to the website to enter the ticket lottery and it's still down!


I heard over 20 million people have signed up so far.

That's just insane!

^ Yeah, I'm sure that's true. But the guy is, what?, in his 60s? Even in the Page/Plant Unledded songs he couldn't really hit the high notes anymore.

It's the same old question everyone has to answer for themselves: they'll never be what they once were again, but would you rather have nothing at all, or a little piece of the thing that used to be?

That sounds like a title for a new U2 album: "A little piece of the thing that used to be."

Ok, that would be the most depressing title of any U2 album to date, including "The Unforgettable Fire".
