LED ZEPPELIN Reunion Postponed Due To JIMMY PAGE's Broken Finger
Led Zeppelin Reunion Postponed Due to Broken Finger

Those lucky ticket holders for the most anticipated reunion show of the year, if not the decade, will have to anticipate a wee bit longer. The reconvening of Led Zeppelin for the first time in almost 20 years, scheduled to take place at the O2 Arena in London on Nov. 26, has been pushed back two weeks, to Dec. 10. The reason for the announced delay is that Jimmy Page has broken a finger, which will preclude him from playing guitar for three weeks, on advice of doctors. "I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks," Page said about the long-sold-out show, for which a million ticket requests were reportedly made. "However, Led Zeppelin have always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to."The concert, a tribute to the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, will also feature Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Paul Rogers, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.
