Led Zeppelin are to Reunite!


Recommended Posts

This is incredible news and it's all because of one concert - a Foo Fighters concert! Check the news here:


While for months people have speculated about how much it would take for Led Zeppelin to reunite, it seems all it took was a Foo Fighters' gig. Led Zep's Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones joined the American group onstage at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, prompting Dave Grohl to bellow "Welcome to the greatest fucking day of my life!"

Grohl, we guess, must be a Led Zeppelin fan.

This is the first time any members of Led Zeppelin have performed together since their one-off O2 Arena gig in December. Though singer Robert Plant was nowhere to be seen - he is on tour with Alison Krauss in America - the makeshift supergroup did not shy away from Led Zeppelin's hits. Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins took the mic for a rendition of Rock and Roll, and Dave Grohl led the charge for the classic Ramble On.

Led Zeppelin's partial reunion had been rumoured all week, and Grohl teased the audience throughout the show - the Foo Fighters' second night in a weekend residency at Wembley.

"We're gonna do something we've never done at a Foo Fighters show," he enthused after a rendition of This Is a Call. "This is gonna be the show that we're gonna be talking about for the next 20 years!"

After being called back to the stage for an encore, Grohl made an emotional introduction. "Tonight, playing here at Wembley Stadium is an honour, and if we didn't take advantage of this opportunity we'd be crazy," he said. "We knew from the beginning this wasn't going to be another outdoor show. We have been planning this for six months, so we would like to welcome Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones on stage."

Though Page and Jones left the stage before a final, fireworks-busting performance of the Foo Fighters' Best of You, it is probably the Zeppelinists' performance that will be etched in most attendees' memories. That, or Grohl's profanity-laden enthusiasm. As he roared to the crowd, "For all 86,000 of you motherfuckers, it isn't gonna be like any other show!"


Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl - formerly the drummer with Nirvana - told the 86,000-strong audience on Saturday that he had something special planned, saying: "Tonight this will be the show we are talking about for the next 20 years."

Page and bassist John Paul Jones then appeared to perform two of their most celebrated songs: Rock and Roll and Ramble On.

An emotional Grohl told the crowd after the impromptu appearance: "Welcome to the greatest day of my whole entire life."

It was the first time Led Zeppelin had appeared onstage since their hugely successful reunion concert in front of 22,000 fans at London's O2 centre in December.

In an interview after that concert, Page said the band were ready to reunite and perform more live events.

But he said that fans could have to wait until Autumn 2009 as band members had to tie up individual projects first.

Here's some footage from the famous Wembley gig -
