Led Zeppelin reunion: rider secrets revealed

Find out Page and Plant's surprising backstage demands

Led Zeppelin have revealed the items they have requested and now await them backstage for tonight’s (December 10) reunion show at the O2 Arena in London.

Their demands list, a far cry from those that would have accompanied their debauched shows in the 1970s, includes in ironing board, tea and coffee.

Show promoter Harvey Goldsmith told the London Lite: “They are very low-maintenence. They are focused and know a lot of people have been waiting a long time for this.”
