If you have been an ardent fan of Led Zeppelin then you wouldn’t bat your eyelid when I tell you that the band – Led Zeppelin are auctioning three pairs of tickets for their reunion show! They have set a starting bid price of ₤5,000 ($10,000) per pair for three pairs of tickets that will be auctioned off on Tuesday, Nov. 13 (guys that is today), for its reunion concert scheduled for December 10. This is actually a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend one of the most eagerly awaited concerts of the decade celebrating the life and work of Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records and much missed mentor to some of the greatest names in music. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will be joined by Jason Bonham, son of late Led Zeppelin drummer, John Bonham. In addition, artists such as Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini, all touched by Ertegun’s guiding hand over the years, will perform in this extraordinary tribute concert. Following huge demand to see the band, the tickets are anticipated to become ‘the most expensive’ in history. The winning bidders will also get access to the bands after show party. With more than 25 million people registering for the lottery to buy tickets, the bidding may as high as $20,000 or more per pair.
The auction on Seatwave is being held on behalf of the organisation, Action For Brazil’s Children, a charity dedicated to helping the most vulnerable children and young people of Brazil, which guitarist Jimmy Page helped to create.
