Tickets to LED ZEPPELIN's comeback gig have sparked an unprecedented rush with around 20 million fans clamouring for a glimpse of nostalgia.

The legendary British rock band, who have sold more than 300 million albums, are performing together for the first time in 19 years.

Fans are attempting to register for tickets to the event at London's O2 Arena at a rate of 80,000 per minute, according to service provider Pipex.

The website for the arena has crashed due to the huge demand for the chance to see the band joined by other big name artists such as Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.

Tickets for the concert on November 26 will be allocated via a lottery.

A spokesman for the gig said: "The message is to be patient. The website will be open until midday Monday September 17 for anyone wanting to register.

"It is not 'first come, first served' and all successful applicants will be entered into the ballot for tickets to be drawn at random."

Led Zeppelin's three original members - singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones - will be joined by Jason Bonham, son of the late drummer John Bonham.

The group are reforming to headline a tribute concert for Ahmet Ertegun, the founder of Atlantic Records, who died last year.
