Led Zeppelin is currently finalizing arrangements to play in their first full concert since they disbanded in 1980 after the death of their drummer John Bonham. Led Zeppelin's surviving members have reunited twice since they broke up, but each performance was just a couple of songs. The first time they reunited was in 1985 for Live Aid, and then in 1995 they reunited for their induction onto the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.
Zeppelin is in negotiations with O2 Arena in London for a show which would potentially see each member earn $5M for one night simply for playing. Any DVD's or CD's made of the show would of course generate more revenue for each band member.
Zeppelin has no plans to tour, and this would be a one-off show done as a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun who recently passed away and was the founder of Atlantic Records.
