So Why the Reunion?

Well According to NME.COM this is why:

Led Zeppelin have spoken about why they are playing their first gig in 19 years this November.

The band will play the O2 Arena in London on November 26.

The show is a tribute for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

Speaking at the press conference it was explained that the reunion came about after the band were contacted by the late record mogul’s wife.

Promoter Harvey Goldsmith explained that she and him had written the band an “emotive letter” asking them to play.

Despite initially expressing doubts, the band rehearsed in June and immediately decided to play a full, two-hour gig rather than a proposed half-hour set.

Paying tribute to Ertegun, Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant declared: “During the Zeppelin years, Ahmet Ertegun was a major foundation of solidarity and accord. For us he was and remained a close friend and conspirator - this performance stands alone as our tribute to the work and the life of our long standing friend.”

Who Knew after all this time all it would take was an emotive letter, and getting them into the same room to jam!

well, maybe not, maybe Ahmet Ertegun’s passing away had something to do with it.

but still. its been a long time coming. Lets hope it stands up to the standards held for Zeppelin.
