Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert
On 14 December 2006, Atlantic co-founder Ahmet Ertegun died in a coma, two months after falling and hitting his head backstage at a Rolling Stones concert. Led Zeppelin always held Ertegun in high esteem, given everything he had done for the band in their early days. Almost a year later to the day, 10 December 2007, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones reunited, with John Bonham’s son Jason on drums, to headline a concert held at London’s O2 Arena, in order to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute fund. Tickets were allocated through internet ballot, with fans all over the world having to register to be in with a chance of being allotted two tickets priced at £125 each. All the proceeds went to the Ahmet Ertegun charity, and over a million people registered for just 20,000 tickets. Roaring through most of their classics, including ‘Whole Lotta Love’, ‘Stairway To Heaven’ and ‘Black Dog’, the Led Zeppelin concert was not only the reunion of the year, but the rock’n’roll reunion of the decade.
