Led Zeppelin
As we reported earlier in the rumor stage of things here on the Riff, seminal British rock band Led Zeppelin will reunite for one show only at the 22,000-capacity O2 Arena in London on November 26th. Jason Bonham, son of original drummer John Bonham, will join the three surviving members of the band for a two-hour set. The show will be part of a tribute to Ahment Ertegun, the co-founder of Atlantic Records, who died last year; other performers include The Who’s Pete Townsend, Foreigner’s Mick Jones and Paolo Nutini, as well as former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and possibly current Rolling Stone Mick Jagger.

The chance to buy a pair of £125 ($254) tickets was to be awarded via lottery, but the event’s website, Ahmettribute.com, crashed within minutes of its 4pm (UK time) opening, and appears to still be offline. In the meantime enjoy a couple Led Zeppelin mashups.

DJ Zebra – Icky Thump (Whole Lotta Thump Mix) (White Stripes vs. Led Zeppelin)
Me – Drop It Like It’s a Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin vs. Snoop Dogg)
DJ Moule – “Black Sabotage” (Led Zeppelin vs. Beastie Boys)
