Zeppelin ticket ballot result due

Led Zeppelin fans are due to find out later whether their applications to see the band reunite on stage in London have been successful.

More than a million people took part in an online ballot, but just 20,000 tickets are available for the show, on 26 November at the O2 arena in London.

The gig is a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, the late founder of Atlantic Records.

Those who have been allocated tickets will be e-mailed by 0000 BST (2300 GMT) on Monday evening, a spokesman said.

Then they will have to pay £125 per ticket, plus booking fees.

Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman and Paolo Nutini will also perform at the concert.

Led Zeppelin's last full concert was in Berlin in July 1980, two months before the death of drummer John Bonham.

A show to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Atlantic Records in 1988 was the last time singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones all played together.

But a rift between Jones and the other two band members opened after Page and Plant started working together without him in the 1990s.

Proceeds from the show will go to an education fund set up in Mr Ertegun's memory.
