Led Zeppelin reunion: £83,000 paid for tickets
A Led Zeppelin fan has paid £83,000 for two tickets to the rock band's reunion concert, as part of an auction for the BBC's 'Children in Need' appeal.

BBC Radio 2 listener Kenneth Donell paid to see the band rehearse and perform on 10 December.

Tickets went on sale in October for £125 each.

The band are set to play the O2 Arena in London.

The rockers top a bill that also includes Pete Townshend, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini with Bill Wyman And The Rhythm Kings backing those three acts as well as playing their own set.

The show is being held to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund , which pays for university scholarships in the UK, US and Turkey.
