Ireland Online reports: The Led Zeppelin reunion gig was almost thrown into jeopardy last night when drummer Jason Bonham suffered an attack of nerves shortly before the band was due to take to the stage.

The legendary rockers reformed for a one-off show at London's O2 Arena in memory of their late friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, with 'Foreigner' star Jason taking the place of his father, John Bonham, in the band's line-up.

But the group's reunion proved to be tougher for 41-year-old Bonham than he thought it would be.

Backstage at the concert, his Foreigner bandmate, Mick Jones, said: "It's been so emotional for Jason. He was fine up until 45 minutes before the show. He will be wretching (vomiting) before he goes on."

John Bonham died in 1980, aged 32.
