Led Zeppelin postpone reunion show

Guitarist Jimmy Page suffers injury

Led Zeppelin have announced that they will postpone their reunion show due to an injury to guitarist Jimmy Page‘s finger.

The show, originally scheduled for November 26 at London’s 02 Arena, has now been rescheduled for December 10.

Page’s injury occurred last weekend, and will prevent him from playing guitar for three weeks.

“I have examined the fracture to Mr. Page’s finger, and it is my opinion that, with proper rest and treatment, he will be ready to resume rehearsing in three weeks’ time, and thus able to perform on December 10,” Page‘s medical specialist said in a statement.

Page added: “I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks. However, Led Zeppelin have always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal, and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to.”

All tickets for the original show will be honoured at the rescheduled date.

Those who are unable to attend should request a refund at their point of purchase prior to noon (GMT) on November 14. These tickets will be offered to ballot winners selected at random from the original registrations.

The show, which also features Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Paul Rogers, Paolo Nutini, and Foreigner, is being held to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which pays for university scholarships in the UK, US and Turkey.
