Leddy- Chris (Hants)

Thanks to Whyalla I go to go, thank you so much.

I will keep it brief but it started with us all in the ballot, when the day came and went and the realisation that I had not got a ticket, the usual upbeat me was a little downbeat, my friend at work noticed this and at his suggestion I wrote a letter to Harvey goldsmith asking that the concert be screened outside somewhere in London for all us people who were going up but couldn't get in. I even said I would make the tea for the them all lol.

He obviously didn't get back to me and Igot use to the fact that after waiting 27 years to see Zeppelin or a Zeppelin in name group perform a full concert that I would just have go and be outside the O2.

fast forward to about ten days before the rearranged gig, and Whyalla on this board who I talked too, sent me and email on this forum ( I was on here at the time it was sent, but talking on the phone). my heart missed a beat and said to the person on the phone I will phone you back). I read it again and relaised that although I had never met him before that he would sell me his other ticket to true Zep fan, as his wife Nessy wasn't and thought it should go to someone who did like them. I emailed right back and bit his hand off Lol.

The day before the gig I went met in a hotel ( it was like something out of a film) then went to the arena to get tickets and bands. I still couldn't believe this was really going to happen due to the nature of how the tickets were being distributed and that the buyers of the tickets had to be there etc. We waited in line for 3 hours and at one point i said to my partner that I had an aura and that I might go in to a full seizure, I told her that if I pass out that and have a seizure that she had to drag me to the front with steve to get the ticket and wristband on me whatever it took lol. Thankfully after about an hour of the aura i didn't go into a full seizure ( I was going to get the ticket at all costs lol).

I won't bore you anymore but meeting Whyalla and his wife, the meetup the night before, the gig and bumping into Lee and Chicken mins after the gig will live with me forever.

I can never repay Whyalla for letting this happen but he made a Zep freak really happy.

I was standing right in front of the mixing desk, right hand side (as you look at the stage).

From there the sound quality was incredible. They really did their homework on the that aspect. In fact, the whole performance was amazing in so many ways - from the band giving it everything, to the wonderful stage production. This gig was so fantastic that I can honestly say that I give it a thought every single day.

This fellow Canadian was there too! Best night of my life.....a truly remarkable occasion. After 30 years of hoping and wishing my dreams came true on 12/10/2007.

fsmith9095.....That was a great story. I envy you and wish I had been one of the very few who actually got tickets. Thanks for sharing your story. :D

If Fsmith is still around these parts, can it be revealed now the name of the hotel he and the Zeppelins were staying in? [i'm assuming Jimmy stayed in the same hotel as his guitars, and that the whole band was in the same hotel!]

I was at the O2, up in the high seats (opposite side to Zepp-a-holic) but very overjoyed to finally see and hear Jimmy Page play live.

I went to the O2 Area Concert, London - 12.10.07. I flew out from California with out a Ticket in Hand. As the Hammer of the Gods would have it, I was about to get a Ticket and ended up 2nd row center. I was even Interviewed afterwards - http://www.flickr.co...eppelinconcerts

I was there! It was the best 14th birthday present I could have got.

I was on the floor, about 3 or 4 rows back.

3 or 4 rows back, from where?
