Reunion fever continues this week, as fans debate whether the legendary English rockers will come back together for a performance this fall. Tickets for a supposed Zeppelin show at the O2 Arena (housed in the former Millenium Dome in London) are being advertised by Premier Entertainments, but the band have offered no confirmation, and promoter Harvey Goldsmith says he’s concerned people are being “fleeced.” He released a statement saying that there are “at least four events being advertised which I suspect either don’t exist or where no tickets are on sale or indeed dates finalized.” The vague language is giving fans hope that the remaining members of Led Zeppelin, who disbanded after the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, will perform together for the first time since a gig at Atlantic Records’ 40th birthday celebrations in 1988. The tickets from Premier Entertainments have no official date apparently advertised the show’s date as November 26th and come packaged with hotel accommodations, prices starting at £269. That’s $541 at current exchange rates. You know, you could see Wolfmother 15 times for that kind of money.
