Today, in the evening, Led Zeppelin are showing us a whole lotta love by bringing it on home. Instead of going to California, or even over the hills and far away to Kashmir, their first reunion rock and roll concert for 27 years is happening at the 02 venue on the Greenwich peninsular.
In real heartbreaker news, Londonist read the physical graffiti (OK, bit weak that one, we know) a bit too late – there was no quarter left for us and so we are left sitting, dazed and confused, alone at home with our black dog.
We’re exhausted already. Anyway, the gist of it is that lots of lucky people will be attending a huge concert which is being staged as a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of the Atlantic Label, who went to the great recording studio in the sky last year. It is not just Led Zepp, although they are patently the main draw – attendees will also be treated to performances from bits of The Who, The Stones, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini. Security is very high, with promoter Harvey Goldsmith going to extraordinary lengths to prevent black market ticket sales.
If you’re going, enjoy – Londonist is very jealous.
If you read this tomorrow and you went along, drop us a line below to tell us what we missed – we won’t hate you too much, promise.
