O2 holds 20,000

so there are 10,000 chances

So your odds are 1 in 20,000

Actually, I just read the whole thing and they've only released 14,500 tickets with some extra left over for V.I.P.s and a couple different package deals.

I just entered for fun. I live in Southern California. As much as I LOVE Led Zeppelin, I'm not sure I could make the trek to London just for one show.

We'll see.

Assuming a 20,000 seat capacity (we know it will be slightly less now, what I posted were the odds.

It's 1 in 20,000,000 if only 1 ticket is available to the general public

So now it's only a one time thing? Bummer. Good to see they're leaving the door open for possible additional shows in the future.

NO LED ZEPPELIN TOUR AFTER LONDON SHOW, ROBERT PLANT SAYS

Friday, 28 September 2007

Statement comes just days after Dave Grohl offered his drumming services for a Zep tour. by Chris Harris, with additional reporting by Jem Aswad Ever since the three living members of Led Zeppelin confirmed earlier this month that they'll be reuniting for a gig at the O2 Arena in London on November 26, the rumor mill has been rife with speculation that the band - frontman Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones, with Jason Bonham filling in on drums for his late father, John - would follow the appearance with a full-blown tour. But that won't be happening, Plant told British music mag Uncut. He told the mag that November's concert - in honor of Ahmet Ertegun, who signed the band to Atlantic Records in 1969 and died last year at the age of 83 (see "Atlantic Records Co-Founder Ahmet Ertegun Dies") - will be a one-time deal: "There'll be one show and that'll be it," he's quoted as saying. The benefit concert will also feature performances by other Atlantic artists past and present, including Who's Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Paolo Nutini and Foreigner.

"We need to do one last great show because we've done some shows and they've been crap," Plant said. The group disbanded after John Bonham's death from alcohol poisoning in 1980. Plant, Page and Jones performed at Live Aid in 1985 (with Phil Collins and Chic's Tony Thompson tag-teaming on drums) and at the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary show in 1988 with Jason Bonham; they also performed at Jason's wedding. Page and Plant joined forces for two albums and a world tour in the mid-'90s and have performed together sporadically over the years. However, Plant asserted that there will be no tour after the forthcoming show. "Not for me," he told the mag. "But I can't speak for anyone else." The singer said he's actually looking forward to bringing his music career to a close. "I know I'm getting on," he said. "When I do come back from touring, I'm shocked to find a lot of my mates tend to be going to bed far too early, and that means I should probably be doing the same. Maybe I should stop having a good time and get old." The singer recently collaborated with bluegrass artist Alison Krauss on an album called Raising Sand, which comes out next month.

Plant's comments came just days after Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl apparently volunteered his services for just such a tour. After saying that he plans to sneak his way into the long-sold-out London show, the former Nirvana drummer added that he wouldn't mind manning the kit for Zep if needed. "[I am] at their beck and call," he told British music weekly the New Musical Express, adding that if he were asked to play with the Zeppelin, "What the f--- do you think I'd be saying? I'd say, 'Hey [Foo Fighters bandmates] Chris [Shiflett] and Taylor [Hawkins], let's take a little break for a few days, I'll see ya later!' But I don't expect that to happen." Grohl further acknowledged that Jason Bonham is the perfect choice to replace his father: "Jason should be the one. Everyone knows that. He's a f---ing phenomenal drummer." Grohl's publicist did not confirm the NME quotes specifically, but noted that he's heard the drummer express great enthusiasm at the prospect of playing with Zeppelin.

This report is from MTV News.

Hopefully they're not slobbering all over the stage a la Live Aid.

Let's hope they can live-up to this statement!

my two cents' worth of ambivalence

It relaxes me a bit to hear him say that. They've already played together without Bonzo, so they can't really be accused of tarnishing his or their legacy by doing it again now. And maybe on the contrary they can actually erase my lingering memories of the Live Aid and Atlantic Records fiascos, which youtubers refuse to let die. It should be illegal to post that '85 version of Stairway. (Have you ever heard Phil Collins' take on that performance? It's a riot. He admits that he didn't show up for rehearsal, and then blames Tony Thompson for everything.)
That said, of course, none of the other reunions were full gigs, or even close. This time around the band will "play all the songs everyone wants to hear," so that means stairway, and dazed, and all that. And it also means that presumably we're going to get a full set of songs, rather than two-and-a-half hours of five songs, which is probably just as well because I can't imagine they could jam together too well without a ton of touring behind them.
If Bonham were alive, all this would be moot. But what people have said in this thread has been right on - Bonham was the greatest rock drummer ever, on a completely different plane even from Moon, and what he brought to Zeppelin was every bit as important as what the other three brought. There are moments in Zep songs when I am moved almost to tears by the drumming - or rather, by the way the drums interact with the bass and guitar and vocals. In the end it doesn't matter how good Jason is, because even if he were Ginger Baker and Keith Moon rolled into one, he wouldn't be Bonzo. It's not all about technical skill.
None of this means that the show can't kick some serious ass. If I had the money to pay ten thousand dollars for a scalped ticket and to fly to London, I'd do it without regret. But it won't really be Zep.
