One-off opus overbooked...

"We're going to need a bigger stadium"! Promoters say that around 20 million people (!!!) have registered for tickets for the November reunion concert of Led Zeppelin. Registration for the tickets (125 quid each) will be finished by midday on Monday and afterwards tickets will be allocated by public ballot to deter touts. (Nice one!) Incredible to think of that many people registering; especially when you think the band split up in 1980! "Profits from the concert will go towards scholarships in Ertegun's [*] name in UK, the USA and Turkey, the country of his birth."
*Music mogul Ahmet Ertegun, who co-founded Atlantic Records and signed Led Zeppelin in 1968.

Stairway to Heaven, one of the worst songs ever recorded and don't bloody care if they are BLack Country connections or not! Span, that massive clock at the bottom of your blog is counting my life's seconds away!

hehehe...Stairway to Heaven is possibly the worst example...also probably the most palyed and most popular of their tracks...not that wanted it that way!

Sooooooooooooooo...you're aversely affected by the bottom of my blog....I'm sure I could mispronounce taht in some silly way...especially as I'm reeling (literally) from a bad night in the bar...see next post!

I posted about this concert on the Radio 2 MB back in July and its just moved back up the board - different to 5Live's boards.

I saw Led Zep in 1975 I didn't register this time, no Bonzo.

Try everything once in life except morris dancing and snogging your sister.

Never saw Led Zep - very nearly went to Knebworth (1979)

P.S. I'm sure you shagging my sister wouldn't be that bad! ;-)

Not your sister, you know what I meant!
