'Door open' for Rolling Stones frontman to join Ahmet Ertegun show
Harvey Goldsmith, the promoter behind the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Gig which will see Led Zeppelin reform on November 26, has hinted they won’t be the only reformation on the night.
The show which takes place at the O2 Arena in London will be the band’s first full show in 22 years, will also see performances from Pete Townshend, Foreigner, Paolo Nutini and Bill Wyman And The Rhythm Kings who will back the other three acts.
However speaking at a press conference announcing the show today, Goldmsith said there was a chance that The Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger will join the line-up.
He said there was a possibility that the singer will make an appearance, explaining that the “door is open” and he could reunite onstage with former Stones bassist Wyman.
The latter quit the band in 1993, but with The Rolling Stones being signed to Ertegun’s Atlantic Records in the US there is a strong chance the pair will perform together again.
Tickets for the show cost £125 each and they are limited to two per person and will be distributed by ballot only.
Those wishing to go must register on Ahmettribute.com to be in the ballot. Registration closes on Monday (September 17), while any tickets that appear on online auction sites afterwards will be immediately cancelled.
