Led Zeppelin Website Gets 120 Million Hits

In one day, the registration website for tickets to see Led Zeppelin's reunion concert received 120 million hits yesterday (September 13th).

The website has been inundated by visitors since it opened at 4pm on Wednesday for fans to register for tickets to the tribute concert on November 26th at the O2 Arena in London.

25 million people have so far applied for tickets to the show – with only 14,500 available. Tickets are limited to two per person and will be distributed by a public ballot.

Fans have until midday on Monday (September 14th) to register for the £125 tickets to the concert, which is being held in memory of Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who was instrumental in launching the band's career.

Organisers have released a statement today (September 14th) urging people to be patient after the website crashed due to the phenomenal demand.

It read: "The message is to be patient. The website will be open until midday Monday (September 17) for anyone wanting 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."

As well as a rumoured appearance from Mick Jagger, the concert will also feature performances by Pete Townshend, Paolo Nutini and Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings.
