TRIUMPHIC RETURN LED ZEPPELIN
More than five years have passed since the reunion of the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin, which took place as part of a concert in honor of Ahmet Ertegun at London’s O2 Arena. Now the fans of the group are discussing the news about a possible release of a DVD recording the performance.
Good news for music lovers was brought by one of the Belgian radio stations. If you believe this source, CD and DVD editions will please fans of the group in October. Moreover, the musicians themselves promise an unusual cover and several exclusive concert recordings as a bonus.
This concert, held in 2007, was the first for Led Zeppelin since 1980, which was overshadowed by the death of drummer John Bonham. Music critics unanimously call this performance the most significant event in the world of rock music of the 21st century. There were about 20 million people who wanted to see the reunion of the legendary group, but not everyone was lucky to get to the concert. Tickets for the sensational performance, which were played through the lottery, could be booked online. The group donated all the money they earned to the charity fund of the founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, who at one time helped the musicians gain world fame. The band members themselves are very pleased with the fact that their performance helped establish the new program to help talented students from all over the world.
Currently, the fund is collecting money for students. The largest donation was made by the wife of Ahmet Mika, who transferred about $ 26 million to Oxford University. The Foundation sponsors geographical, archaeological and other types of practices, and also pays scholarships to talented youth. Thanks to Ms. Ertegun’s donation, the best students from all over the world will be able to study at the university for free. Also, the money received will be used to help graduate students.
As you can see, the legendary musicians, whose music captivated the hearts of tens of millions, reunited not in vain – their music, in addition to aesthetic pleasure for the audience, helped to raise money for good purposes. In addition, a decent amount of fans has been accumulated, rockers can safely continue their career. We hope that soon fans of Led Zeppelin will be able to see the recording of the landmark concert, which will be included in the new DVD-ROM and imbued with the spirit of one of the most successful bands in the history of world rock music.
