Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has said that he has nothing but bad memories about the bands previous reunion shows.

Speaking ahead of the band's one-off show at the O2 Arena in London next Monday (December 10th), Plant described their show at Live Aid in 1985 as a "fucking atrocity" and their performance at Atlantic Records' 40th Birthday in 1988 as "foul."

Despite his bad memories, the band have rehearsed a meticulous two hour set list for Monday's show.

The concert, which attracted over 1 million applicants for just 20,000 tickets, is being held in tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, co-founder of Atlantic Records.

"I'm humbled by the way the people have responded," Plant told the Sun, "because there's a billion people who'd like a hit at what they'd most like to do in life."

Monday's line-up will feature Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, the son of John Bonham – the band's original drummer.
