According to This is London, legendary rockers LED ZEPPELIN look set to reform and play the O2 arena in London, England this autumn.

There has been no official announcement that they will perform again 27 years after the group disbanded following the death of drummer John Bonham but advertisements appeared in the U.K. press today with top-price ticket and hotel packages on offer for £369.

A cheaper package from the Premier Entertainments company, including a night in a four-star hotel, is available for £269.

Callers today were told: "It's just about to be officially announced." Speculation had been mounting for some time that the band would get back together soon.

The three surviving members — John Paul Jones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page — reunited at the Live Aid concert in Philadelphia in 1985 for a short set with Phil Collins as one of the stand-in drummers. The band's albums and song "Stairway to Heaven" have remained popular and a new best-of album is due this year.

How many best-ofs can they release? I mean, they have a handfull of different box sets already. You can't possibly make a single disc best-of for Zeppelin.

WOW....perhaps a lifelong dream will come true..??? But I doubt it...this has been the gossip since the Live Aid show and the Atlantic records party in 88..
Yes, it would be waaaaayyyy cool to see it happen...but I aint gonna drain my savings account for tickets yet..
IF this were to happen, without a doubt it would make them ALOT of money..!!!!!!!

I know people who work in tickets and other management and the like and apparantly Led Zeppelin WILL be playing London and I seem to remember the 02 Arena being mentioned. Of course no-one can get a gig there at the moment because Prince won't leave!
