Zep To Resume Rehearsals As Page Promises Live Surprise

The UK's ITN recently conducted an interview with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page about the band's upcoming December 10 reunion show at the 02 Arena in London.

The Pulse of Radio reports that Led Zeppelin was set to resume rehearsals this week for the London gig, following the show's postponement from its original November 26 date after Page broke his left pinky finger. Page told Reuters that the finger was almost healed, saying, "I'm able to do what I ought to be able to do. It's just a bit bruised and it's a bit painful still, but with this two weeks''s going to be fine."

Page also revealed that the band might perform a song that it has never played live before. He explained, "There's one number that we rehearsed, I assume that it will make it to the (concert), that we never played at any point in time. It dates from when the band was together between 1968 and 1980. It's a really intense number."

The set list for the show, which will cap a tribute concert to late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, has been the subject of intense speculation among fans. The band is expected to revive many of its classic tracks for the promised two-hour performance.

Page, singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones will be accompanied on drums by Jason Bonham, son of late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham, for their first concert together in 18 years.
