Led Zeppelin reunion: what fans want the band to play

Here are the songs YOU want for reformation show

Following on from the recent announcement yesterday (September 12) that Led Zeppelin are to reform for a one-off show at the O2 Arena on November 26, NME.COM asjed you what songs you wanted to play on the night

After being inundated with song suggestions, we can now present the setlist the fans want to hear.

The favourite by a landslide was the signature classic ‘Stairway To Heaven’, proving once and for all that their most played song is their most treasured, despite any suggestion that the track has fallen victim to cliche.


Lee Hillier summed up the opinion of the masses when he said “it wouldn’t be right not to include ‘Stairway To Heaven’, as it is an all-time classic!”

Other favourites included hits ‘Kashmir’, ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ and ‘Rock And Roll’.

Meanwhile as Steve Shaw argued, “What Led Zep performance could be complete without the riff that ate the world: ‘Whole Lotta Love’.”

The band’s 1968 cover of folk track ‘Dazed & Confused’ was another clear favourite, as Phil Shulkind explained “just to see the violin bow one more time”.

So if you all had you way, the fans’ fantasy Led Zeppelin setlist would be as follows:

‘Rock And Roll’


‘The Immigrant Song’

‘That’s The Way’

‘Dazed & Confused’


‘Communication Breakdown’

‘Black Dog’

‘The Battle Of Evermore’

‘When The Levee Breaks’


‘In My Time Of Dying’

‘Achilles’ Last Stand’

‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’

‘Misty Mountain Hop’

‘Whole Lotta Love’

‘Stairway To Heaven’
