More Personal Led Zeppelin Thoughts...

Okay, So a few days ago my Best Friend Found out he got a passcode allocated! Superb, so whats gone on since?

Well, i have kind of neglected with only the odd update every so often, but i have been working on other projects.

Okay, so what new projects and “other stuff", well, i am currently compiling a website where all people that go to the gig can upload pictures and use it as a central “hub” of photographs from the reunion gig.

Its still in very early stages, but im expecting it to be ready by the time of the gig.

As for cameras in the venue, here is what the venue said about it:

Cameras will be allowed for this event as long as they are not professional cameras and are of a small-medium size.



Customer Services

The O2

Peninsula Square
SE10 0DX
T: 0208 463 2000

So, as soon as it is ready for visitors, i will post the website on here, so keep your eyes peeled.

What else have i been upto?

well, i have plans for something that i have been wanting for ages, but not got round to it, due to money and my distaste for pain.

But i am finally getting the 4 symbols tattooed on me… in pride of place on my wrists (I always said i would never get anything on my lower arms, due to future job prospects, but with something so monumental as a Led Zeppelin reunion, it would be hard not to get it done)

So pictures will be up on wednesday night after i have it done.

with that in mind, if anyone else has Led Zeppelin Tattoos, feel free to comment, and give any experiences that you have had induced from the tattoo’s (maybe a conversation that was special to you, after being sparked by the tattoo’s, i.e. “hey thats a nice tattoo…” - later going on to getting married?! Also, feel free to post pictures of your tattoos, Im always interested to see other peoples artwork :)

Other than that, i Don’t thin alot has gone on. Just planning for the gig itself.

If you are going, dont forget to sort out ur travel/parking, as with only 2000 parking spaces, they might be tight, especially if alot of people intend on going even without tickets.

Have fun and Thanks for readin (if anyone actually did :)

Harvey Goldsmith Blog Update

Ahmet Ertegun Tribute

We have now filtered through all of those previous winners who could not make the new concert date of December 10th. As a result of this process the final passocode winners have been randomly selected on a first come first served basis, out of the original ballot.

Please note as follows, the box office for collection of tickets will be open from Sunday 9th December from 10am until 6pm and from 10am and on Monday 10th December until the concert starts.

Please note that the concert starts at 7pm and will finish at 11pm.

In addition to the Jubilee line where the last train leaves at 12.19am there is also a boat service that will take you to Westminster Pier under the Millenium Eye if you wish to stay later. This boat service will run until at least 4am.

I have read through most of your comments and my response is very simple. Throughout this process we have tried to satisfy those fans that took the trouble to register on the original ballot. It is going to be a fantastic concert and I hope you will all find that the effort that you have all made is worth it.

Led Zeppelin Deny Groupies at reunion.

25th November 2007

By Rick Lyons
SORRY girls… but the last thing Led Zeppelin want is a Whole Lotta Love.
They’ve ordered staff at London’s O2 Arena to keep groupies at bay.

The band play a reunion gig there on December 10 but it appears their hellraising days are behind them.

An insider said: “The gig is one of their most important ever and they don’t want any distractions.”

“They are all married or in relationships but they understand there are plenty of women who would want to get them in the sack backstage.”

“The roadies and security staff have been warned not to let any of these women near them.”

Led Zeppelin bedded thousands of groupies between them in the Sixties and Seventies.

One incident in 1969 involving a girl and a shark – which can’t be detailed on a family website – is one of the wildest examples of rock excess.

But now singer Robert Plant, 59, Jimmy Page, 63, John Paul Jones, 61, and drummer John Bonham’s son Jason, 41, want a quieter life as they prepare for their historic reunion gig.

The insider added: “They are sounding magnificent. The show will be one of the best rock events ever.”
