On 12 September 2007, it was confirmed during a press conference by promoter Harvey Goldsmith that the surviving members of Led Zeppelin, along with Jason Bonham, would reunite for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute concert on 26 November 2007. All tickets were available via a lottery system through the website www.Ahmettribute.com with all proceeds going to Ahmet's own charity. The demand for tickets crashed the website once tickets went on sale. The historic event attracted nearly 20 million people from all over the globe to get tickets, According to Guinness World Records 2009, the concert holds the world record for the "Highest Demand for Tickets for One Music Concert" as 20 million requests for the reunion show were rendered online. On 1 November 2007, Jimmy  Page fractured the little finger on his left hand after a fall in his garden, and the reunion show was postponed to 10 December 2007.

 

To combat fears of ticket scalping, lottery winners had to be present in London with ID to pick up their tickets and wristbands for entry into the show.

During the concert, the band performed songs from across their career, excluding their final studio album "In Through The Out Door." However, the band performed 2 songs live for the first time, "Ramble On" from Led Zeppelin II and "For Your Life" from Presence.

Led Zeppelin performed 16 songs

  • Good Times Bad Times

  • Ramble On

  • Black Dog

  • In My Time of Dying

  • For Your Life

  • Trampled Under Foot

  • Nobody's Fault but Mine

  • Dazed and Confused

  • Stairway to Heaven

  • The Song Remains the Same

  • Misty Mountain Hop

  • Kashmir

  • Whole Lotta Love

​Led Zeppelin started the show with the first song from their first album and finished the show with "Rock & Roll," a song that suited to end the evening by one of the greatest rock and roll bands in history.
