I was one of the fortunate few. Someone recently asked me to recount my experience at the O2 so here it is,a rather long story.

I've deleted some names in the interest of discretion.

Like everyone else,I'd first heard rumors of Led Zeppelin reuniting in June 2007. I assumed this was just another in a long line of rumors that seemed to materialize on an almost regular basis. I didn't think much of these latest round of rumors until I received a cryptic email from my Zeppelin associate in September. He said it was definitely on and would be announced the public in a few weeks. I had to promise not to repeat this information to anybody until it's been officially announced.

The rumors and web sites were lit up with speculation,theories,denials,dreamers,skeptics and nay-sayers.

Finally the day came when an official announcement was made and the Zeppelin world on the Internet exploded.

There was to be a concert on Nov 26th,2007 in honor of Ahmet Ertegun with Jason Bonham joining the rest of the band.

I immediately calculated the odds of getting a ticket,getting off from work and traveling to London. I didn't even have a valid passport. So I resigned myself to hearing about it and seeing clips of it on the Internet. I immediately assumed I would not be going and didn't entertain the thought an set myself up for disappointment.

Like 20 million other fans over the world,I registered for a ticket online and didn't seriously consider having a chance at winning a ticket but it was definitley worth a try.

However,a few weeks after the concert was announced in Sept, I got an email from my Zeppelin associate saying "Pack your bags".

I didn't quite know what to make of it and wasn't sure what he was referring to or if he was playing some sort of practical joke.

I replied to his email and asked something like "Is this what I think it is?" He said it was and it was serious and came from XXXX.

Instantly calculating the odds of being able to find a flight,hotel,a passport and time off from work,I knew this would be a miracle to pull of. It all seemed too good to be true. It was all happening too fast.

It came out of the blue and didn't seem real. Would I have enough time to renew my passport? Would it all fall apart after getting a ticket when all hinged on getting a new passport? My old passport was needed to in order to get a new one and it sat 800 miles away in storage. I didn't know if I could A) Get back to Philly or B) Locate it and C) Send in with enough time to be renewed and returned to me in time.

As it happened,I had to fly to Atlanta for work in early Nov. and I scheduled the flight to stop over in Phila. with a long lay over.

I jumped in the rental car,drove to the storage place and immediately found the passport!

Shortly thereafter,it was announced that Jimmy had broken his finger and the concert would be postponed until Dec 10th.

Had the concert not been postponed,my worst fears would have been realized where I would have had a ticket but no passport.

I actually did not have a ticket in my hand and was assured that I would be given one once in London.

I booked a hotel and flight and everything seemed OK at that point.

Not so OK was the fact that XXXX was frequently unavailable. Our hopes we dashed and then a reassurance would come on the roller coaster ride that was getting tickets to the concert.

Many assurances were met with long intervals of silence that did not instill a lot of confidence that we,in fact,would have tickets in hand in London.

So travel plans made, I left for the airport only to be called by my boss asking if I was working that night.

After multiple calls, I found a replacement at the last minute.

A long flight to London then met up with my two fellow Zep friends at Heathrow airport. The airport was swarming with Zeppelin fans from all over the world. The customs agent even asked if I was there for the concert.

The atmosphere was buzzing with Led Zeppelin magic.

Jumping on a train with our luggage,we were instantly identified as Americans among the Londoners.

The plan was to get off the train and locate a particular hotel and pick up the tickets.

Arriving at the hotel,we were given the room number and excitedly knocked on the door.

The 3 of us sat on the sofa as not to intrude on the proceedings. Finally,my buddy spoke with XXXX.

30 mins later,we were each given an envelope. It was spilling over with tickets,passes and multi-colored wrist bands.

Huh? Was were given the right envelopes. These apparently were for VIP's as the passes were for rehearsal access,multiple after parties and everything a fan could possible want and more. I could only say "Thank you,thank you".

We left the hotel and noticed a marble plaque on the ground that said "All Will Be Revealed". It was eerie.

Making it to the hotel,we had heard rumors of the stage crew also being there. I imagined Zeppelin style parties throughout the hallways. It has to be a rumor only as it simply would be too good to be true.

We checked in to the hotel ( which was $600/night when accounting for the exchange rate). I thought that rather steep but figured we were getting the tickets and passes for free so it was worth the expense.

The girl at the desk said "It's taken care of". I looked at my buddy and didn't say a thing. We gathered in the lobby and asked "Did she mean what I thought she meant?". He thought so and we apparently were "comped" by XXXX. All 3 of us were staying at the hotel for 3 days for free. Unbelievable!

My two buddies went sight seeing around London and to buy t shirts and souvenirs but I decided to stay in the hotel and rest from the long flight and avoid the gloomy,cold December weather outside. I hadn't brought warm enough clothing and could kick myself for not brining my leather Led Zeppelin jacket!!

I stayed in and called friends from back in the States telling them I had made it to London and read all the Zep magazines I had picked up along the way.

One of the passes we were given was for the soundcheck/rehearsal. The O2 was only a mile away but we had to take a train to get there. We boarded the train and made it to the venue. We immediately met familar faces and spent time with the Zep cover band Led Zepagain,also members of FBO. While in line,we could hear the rumblings of "No Quarter" coming thru the doors. After a 30 minute wait,we were escorted in to the stage area where we saw Robert,Jimmy,John Paul and Jason on stage casually working thru "No Quarter,Nobody's Fault But Mine,In My Time of Dying and a loose jam which was very cool".

There were maybe 100 people among the audience-mostly crew,charity people and contest winners.

Robert got down from the stage and wandered around on the floor to listen to the sound and socialize with the crew and fans. I think one of the people he was talking to was his daughter or a close female associate who was laying on the floor right in front of the stage.

During the rehearsal,Jason's son did a little drum solo met with a nice round of applause. Robert's voice sounded great and Jimmy's guitar sound was powerful! It was amazing to see the band rehearsing and in such a casual mood. It was the best of both worlds where they were the famous rock stars but also casual enough to just be themselves hanging out and enjoying the chemistry. All 4 band members seemed relaxed and upbeat.

After about an hour,we were all asked to leave and were back in to the O2 corridors. From the performance we had just witnessed,we anticipated a powerful concert.

That afernoon back at the hotel, I got a call from one of my buddies who said "Quick,get to the lobby. Jimmy's guitars are down in the lobby in cases!". I jumped on the elevator and made it to the lobby but the gear had disappeared as fast as it had arrived. Apparenly it was true that the road crew was staying at our hotel afterall. But no hot groupies running the hallways,unfortunately.

Later that night,there was a planned social gathering at a local pub called "The Pilot" where Zep fans from different online fan groups had agreed to meet. Royal Orleans,FBO,Achilles Last Stand and representatives from the official forum were all meeting up that night at "The Pilot".

I was especially looking forward to meeting up with Annie Hollinshead,the organizer of the Knebworth event planned for the following August and Kevin,a native Brit who I'd been in contact with for years but have yet to meet. Annie and I had been corresponding by phone and Skype for the previous 6 months in preparation for the Knebworth event and a book of collected fan stories to be given to Jimmy on his birthday for the previous 6 months or so. But I had yet to meet her too.

Upon arriving at "The Pilot", I met up with Kevin and Annie where I recounted the afternoon's events at the rehearsal.

There was a festive atmosphere at the pub where long held friendships were renewed or realized in the real world for the first time much like Annie,Kevin and myself. We met up with a guy who claimed to have recorded the Honolulu 71 concert who presented us with photos and his story of being at that concert. There also was a guy from Sweden outside the pub looking for tickets. It was a great environment but all 3 of us were absolutely starving as none of us had a thing to eat since arriving. The rush of events and location of the venue and hotel did not lend itself to access to restaurants. The pub had no food at that hour and we were all about to pass out.

We made our way back to the O2 which was the closest place that had any food at that hour and split a pizza with Annie,Kevin and a mate of his.

I think we finally got to bed back at the hotel around 2 or 3 am.

The day of the concert,we all met up in the one hotel room and did multiple checks for tickets,passes,wrist bands and identification that we were told would be required to get in to the building. After a frantic search for a misplaced ticket,we headed to the train station.

We boarded another train and met a few fellow Zep fans from all over the world,including a group of drunken British business men and another American.

Arriving at the O2,the atmosphere was cold but electric. Fans spilled in and were spread out all over the place. The news media had camped out all over the grounds of the enormous venue grounds,covering the hottest news story all over the world for that day and days afterwards.

I said to nobody in particular " I wonder if there will be any celebrities here"-not realizing this event was THE social event throughout all of Europe for everybody including non-Zeppelin fans. Models and celebrities from all over had descended on the event as the place to see and be seen.

We got to the door and were let in just on showing our wrist bands. We weren't even asked to show our driver's license or any of the checks put in place to prevent ticket scalping. It would have just taken too long and the security was not enforcing the identity checks put in place,at least not as strictly as had been announced.

We then made our way up the ramp to where our seats were and realized the seats were in the VIP area!! At this security check point,they were looking for cameras and recording devices with a metal detecting wand. XXXX was there and came over and said to the security guy "It's OK,these guys are OK" and were let thru the line without any bother.

We were seated to left of the stage up on the 2nd level from the floor. At some point, I grabbed a sandwich which I think was $18.

The seats could have been better. One of the guys ran in to some friends and went on a quest to find other friends from Europe. I met up with a fellow American and FBO member who now lived in the UK and we hung out talked about the show and who else was there we knew.

One of my buddies made it down to the side of the stage and was talking with the crew who were guarding Jimmy's guitars by the stage. He came back and said he also spoke with Brian May from Queen who was there with his girlfriend.

A few minutes later there was a buzz to my left as Marilyn Manson arrived with his actress girlfriend. And I could have sworn I saw Nuno Bettencourt sitting to our left. ( it turns out that it was him).

The warm up acts were given polite applause but nobody was interested. It was awkward for them as nobody was there to hear them. Everybody was only there to see Led Zeppelin and it was painfully obvious to the bands on stage ( Foreigner etc) and to the fans.

There was a really nice filmed tribute to Ahmet and then a very nice filmed documentary of the band.

I saw Jimmy come to the side of the stage and was stretching his legs limbering up before the show.

Finally the lights went down and a roar came up thru the crowd.

The first chords of Good Times Bad Times raise the roof. It was powerful!

Ramble On

Black Dog

-"Good Evening" Announced Robert. He commented on Ahmet and the fact that there were fans from 129 countries at the show.

In My Time Of Dying-Powerful

For Your Life- Was met with a huge roar.It was ruored to be played at the show but nobody was certain it would actually be played at the show.

Trampled Under Foot (During the beginning of each song,I dialed my buddy AJ was at work who was recounting which song was being played to his Zep fan office mates.)

Nobody's Fault But Mine

No Quarter-Very powerful.

Since I've Been Loving You-Great

Dazed And Confused was great with Jimmy using his bow and the laser pyramid. My friends Annie and Kevin were in the front of the stage at this point and I was happy that she realized her life long dream to see Jimmy in concert which she had never done up until this night.

Stairway To Heaven introduced by Robert as "This is for you,Ahmet" then "We did it Ahmet" afterwards.

The Song Remains The Same

Misty Mountain Hop

Kashmir was the highlight of the night. Robert's vocals were great and the visuals were perfect and mesmerizing. The crowd reacted to this song the most. Someone threw a bowler hat up on stage at this point,in dedication to John Bonham, I assume.

Jason Bonham came to the front of the stage and turned around to face Robert,Jimmy and JPJ in an "I'm not worthy" gesture.


Whole Lotta Love

Rock And Roll


Can we please do that again?

After the lights went up,I noticed that Richard Cole was standing 2 rows in front of me. I elbowed Mike and whispered "That's Richard Cole!!". He said "How do you know?" I just knew as I'd seen an interview with him on the E! channel and he looked the same as in the interview. In the mean time,my buddy from NY spotted Mo Jones making her way out of her seat beneath us and to the left. He spoke with her briefly but she didn't recall him from their meeting in NY in 2003. She was there with her grandchildren and preoccupied with them.

We relutantly filed out of our seats and the place was buzzing. There was a bottleneck in the corridor as friends and fans were mulling around talking about the experience. My buddy was talking with Warren Haynes from Government Mule who was really nice.

A minute later,I noticed Ben Harper and his girlfriend Laura Dern walking around. I took the chance and tapped her on the shoulder and told her that I loved the movie "October Sky" which is one of my favorites. She lit up and said "Thank you!" and was really sweet. She's tall! I could see that her boyfriend asked her what I'd said to her and I'm assuming she told him I commented on the movie. Meeting her was icing onthe cake. An actress from one of my all time favorite movies after the Zeppelin show!

So we gathered together and were looking for how to get to the backstage area. There was a group of us all lost and apparently looking for the same place. Richard Cole was standing among us and looking for the same place. The elevator was crowded and he got on the next one.

We found the corridor leading to the backstage area and got in line with our wristbands prominently displayed. Who was standing in line in front of me? Richard Cole,of course! Amazing. He's pretty tall too..6' or so. I wanted to reach out and talk to him but thought better of it. I really regret not at least saying "Hi" to him.

We entered the back stage area and got something to drink. My buddy and I found an area to stand and observed the crowd pass by.

Eddie Kramer walked by! ( I'd met him at a record convention in 1988 so I immediately recognized him). Lulu the British singer was there too. Lots of model types were milling around.

The atmosphere in the backstage area was electric with anticipation of any of the band members showing up,of course.

A small group gathered in front of us-Richard Cole,one of the guys from Oasis,Chad Smith,the drummer from Red Hot Chili Peppers and a few other cool musicians stood around talking about the concert. Richard Cole was maybe 10' in front of me the whole time and I really wanted to ask him for an autograph. But he was on his cell phone most of the time and I didn't want to intrude. It turns out the my buddy managed to get a photo with him which was cool. Damn, I should have been more forward with that!

So were standing around and all the sudden a murmur covers the room like a wave. Jason Bonham shows up to our left. He's with his son and is surrounded by maybe 10 people including my buddy who has a nice conversation with him. I could tell that Jason was really gracious and really friendly with all the fans.

A few minutes later,Jimena Page makes an appearance..like a streak across the room. She disappeared somewhere among a crowd, I think because I didn't see her after then. However,Jimmy's son,James Page Jr was there to my right and had a conversation with my buddy from NY. ( He was very indifferent to being a world famous guitarist's song according to my buddy and apparently very down to Earth from what my buddy told me of their conversation)

About 30 mns later,John Paul Jones arrived surrounded by 15 people. He was glowing and obviously happy about the performance. He was innundated by questions from all around him. Again, I was so tempted to try to talk to him but didn't want to intrude and probably couldn't have penetrated the throng of people around him.

A few hours had gone by. JPJ and Jason stayed about an hour or so. Finally,ushers came in and announced that we all must leave.

After much prodding,we were forced out of the backstage area and made our way to the after party at the Indigo Club. After another line and wrist band checking,we entered the Indigo. Simon Kirke the blues artist was on stage. What I would assume were record company people and friends of the band were milling around. We were all pretty tired at this point but managed to stick around until 3 am or so. Not much was really happening at the Indigo but we hung out and made the most of it.

Finally leaving the O2,we attempted to flag down a taxi. We were told that it would cost $100 or so by a rather rude taxi driver who wasn't interested in taking us anywhere so close.

We were starving,tired,elated,cold and lost in the area around the O2. We even tried to flag down a regular bus and a double decker bus for 2 hours. We finally grabbed hot dogs off of a vendor working out of a cart there for working people on their way to work at 5 am.

Eventually we got a gypsy cab who took us back to the hotel.

My flight back to Chicago was at 11:30 am that morning and Heathrow was all the way on the other side of London which entailed taking 3 trains to get to the terminals.

I slept for an hour and left the hotel at 7 am where I toured the London subway system to get to the airport and board the plane.

Lots of hung over American Zep fans were on the shuttle bus and plane on the way back to the U.S. Everybody wa recounting the previous night's events....still buzzing from the once in a lifetime experience.

Fortunately the plane was almost empty and I stretched out across 4 seats to sleep the whole length of the flight back home.

Carrying my cache of souvenirs, I made it to the rental car and back to the hotel I was staying at.

That night I went in to work and recounted the whole story to my fellow co-workers. It all had not sunken it that I was actualy there.

A few weeks later,I framed everything from the amazing trip.

Is this correct?

My memory may be a little fuzzy after all this time. I may be recalling Robert's comment after the song when he definitely said "That was for you,Ahmet","We did it for you,Ahmet", or words to that effect.

Fair enough!

Stairway wasn't introduced, and at it's conclusion Robert states

"Hey, Ahmet... we did it!"

Cool story btw

Thank you.

I stand corrected. That's exactly what happened. There was no introduction at all.

Thanks for clarifying.

I'm glad you like the story. It was like something out of a movie. All went by too fast!

Shadowblue - on the list B)

Definitely the pinnacle 2 hours of a lifetime of gig-going

fsmith9095, I'm sure envious of your rehersal, backstage and after-party stories but I know many, many feel the same about those like me who had the good fortune to experience the show.

I'd be keen to know how many of the attendee's from this board got there through the ballot.

Thanks for sharing your story, fsmith9095.....too bad nobody managed to tape the rehearsal.


wouldn't it be great if we put all our stories together one day, complete with pics of the show, and pics of the fans and everything around the show and make a book out of it ?

Would be a great souvenir for all who attended and even for the people that weren't there.

Wonderful, fantastic story, Frank!

I am so happy that true Zeppelin fans had the opportunities that you guys had to see the rehearsal, sit in the VIP section, and go backstage and to the after party. It is wonderful that someone (?) appreciated you guys enough to make sure that you could enjoy all these benefits, and on a complimentary, first class basis as well.

It was great that you got to meet, in person, all the other Led Zeppelin fans that you had been corresponding with over the years. That would have also been a highlight of the trip, in my opinion.

It definitely was a dream trip of a lifetime!

I didn't know about this forum at the time, but I was aware that the concert was taking place. VH1 Classic aired The Song Remains the Same and the Led Zeppelin Live movie the night of December 10th, and I watched it, imagining that I was at the concert at the O2, LOL.

My youngest son was in London for a school trip with Ohio State students during that time. He did meet some fans at his hotel who attended the O2 concert and he got the scoop from them. It was the next morning, and the fans were still on an emotional high from the concert.

Good point , lets include that in our survey.

Zepp-4-Life -- obtained ticket through the grace of the lord above via two wonderful people named Sue and Dave. Sue introduced me to Dave through the internet which is how I met both.

My ticket was " given " to me absolutely free of charge by Dave who is also on this board as bigzepfan. The power of believing.

The tickets were acquired through E-Bay.

Great memory and story fsmith9095 !!!

I'll have to summon up my data bank of recollections and share the rehearsal / slash meet Jimmy part of my storyline.

It's nice to see everyone reliving the experience.

CheerZ ( with a Z for Zeppelin )

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I have already posted it long ago on this board and now I'll post it again for those who have the will and time to read it.

How I got my ticket for the O2 concert

On November 12th, I got a PM from a friend from the board telling me that only one ticket was avaiable, only one. I had to decide immediately if I wanted it, because it would be offered to someone else. The gilr who was selling it was from NY, a 23 year old gilr who loved LZ and wanted to sell her spare ticket to another true real fan. The person who was making it with her could no longer go to the concert, because of the change of dates (from November to December, due to Jimmy's accident). I can't be thankful enough to those people who suggested my name, because I had given up all my hopes by that time. I was so taken aback, I just didn't know what to do. I was going to leave for a pizza with my husband that evening and just before we left I decided to check my PM box. My husband looked at my face and asked if there was something wrong with me, because I went pale at once, I showed him my PM and he said: of course you're making it, no matter if alone, you'll be there. No need to say we ordered the pizza home.

And so he picked up the phone and called Varig (Brazilian airline) to see if we could find a ticket to London using my mile reward programm. At the same time I sent the girl from NY an email telling her that I wanted the ticket (I had no idea how much she would want for her spare ticket, I was just trying to convince myself that it wouldn't be that much). My husband managed to book my air ticket to London, but I'd have to spend 9 days in the city, because there were no places in any flights back to São Paulo. I went to bed that day with no answer back from the girl and with a flight ticket booked for the 6th December, back flight 15 th December. I just didn't sleep anything that night.

The first thing I did on the following morning was to check my emails...still no answer from the girl. I just couldn't concentrate at work that day, I was too anxious! Finally in that afternoon the gilr sent me an email saying it would be a pleasure to sell it to me and that she'd get 290 Dollars for the ticket (that's what she paid, the official price plus taxes). No cent of profit, she just wanted to share this unique experience with another real fan. I still can't believe how lucky I was. It is amazing and I'll be forever thankful that there are so many wonderful people among LZ fans.

So I booked a hotel next to the O2, and got in contact with some lovely friends I made here, some of them are the best people I have ever met in my whole life. This concert will be in my memory as the best concert I have ever been to for two reasons: it was LZ (even if Bonzo wasn't there, it was the closest I'd ever come to being to a LZ concert - saw P&P twice back in 1996 - still this one was like the "real" Zeppelin was flying high again) and because of this concert I met my dear friends, people I wanted to meet for so long.

I can't tell how I spent those three weeks before my flight to London, it all looked like a dream, I couldn't (and I still can't) believe how lucky I was.

One day before I got my plane, Varig cancelled the back flight from London. I just panicked.

My husband managed to book me another back flight to São Paulo on the 18th December, I'd have to spend three days more in London. God, I was already going alone leaving husband and kids at home, feeling soooo guilty my husband wouldn't be there with me - he is also a big LZ fan....and I'd spend even more time and money away form home because of a concert! I felt so bad about it all.

But my family was just wonderful, they gave me all the support I needed, they were truly happy for me, and so I went, alone to London, to see my favorite band, the band I love since 1971, as I first heard their music.

No need to say that the concert was simply wonderful, that I was moved to tears as I realised I was really there, that this one concert will live in my memory till the last days of my life.

No need to tell that I met some wonderful people there. They are real friends, people I met on the old board and that are now part of my life, people I love and care for, friends for life.

No need to tell that the girl from NY lives also in my heart. God bless her beautiful soul.

And I'm so happy you were there too! Meeting you was fantastic! ;):kiss:

aw, bless you.

I must admit, the actual concert aside, the fact that I was able to meet people from around the world, who I had merely 'chatted' to on this board, was a real delight. It was brilliant to have met you too Celia and a real shame that I could have not been there sooner or after the concert. I would have loved to have met others too, especially Knebby and Chicken.. but c'est la vie.

I will never forget that phone call the day of the show that began "This is Pilot" --so despite having forgotten to get your number, we were all going to be able to meet up before the show after all! :thumbsup: And a great time was had, too!

Ha ha. Unlike you, I knew that we were all going to meet as I knew that I had your number safely stored in my mobile phone as you left the States (still have in fact, so I hope that you haven't changed it).

Don't forget that I rang you almost a year to the day when you, ledded1 and ninelives were all at the RP/AK gig at Wembley. Shame I couldn't make it also :(

So you did--and we were very happy to have you there in spirit! It was a great night--but still, you were there for the best night of all. ;)

Someone mention my name? :D

The 02 show made new relationships for many people, it was the coming together of so many people from around the world that I believe made it even more special.

I met people from here for the first time and met up with others from previous Strange Sensation shows then later met with them again at various Plant/Krauss shows.

But I think the 02 created something special for those of us lucky enough to be there, it was more than just a concert.

So here's to my friends from around here :rolleyes:

Thanks for all your kind words everybody. I was such a fortunate person. I'll certainly treasure that memory for life.

Great stories too,everybody. We were all "thru the looking glass" for a while there.

Reswati- I love your idea about all the attendees banding together to create a book of memories. Actually, I think it's a great idea. It would be fun to remember and an opportunity for everyone to get a behind the scenes view of what went on from many different views.

I'd love to contribute.

So true, ledded1. Meeting you, Pilot, KB, WW, Aqua, and some other friends made it all even more special.

To all those who shared that unforgetable experience.... :toast:
