”Ahmet We Did it” –  Led Zeppelin 02 Reunion Ten Years Gone TBL Anniversary Celebration Day Event:
The whole story: How we came from the land of the ice and snow to celebrate ten years gone…
It was back in late August when I first began to formulate an idea to have some sort of pub meet to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Led Zeppelin’s 02 reunion concert for Ahmet Ertegun. Rather than sit at home and watch the DVD,  I though it would be a lot of fun to stage a fan …

WHAT THE PAPERS SAID:
Events that have so much resting on them rarely unfold with such an air of assurance. The three original members of the band seemed to be relieved to be relinquishing the burden of anticipation. The heaviosity has always been the cornerstone of their reputation but it was astonishing to see how funky they could be for a rock …

Here’s another 02 Experience….
This comes from Donato Farace of Mississauga,Ontario Canada:
Right from the announcement of the show, I booked a flight to London right away. I was determined to be there even if I did not have tickets to the show. I figured I should at least be there on sacred ground and feel the reverberations coming from the building.
As it turned out I got far more lucky …

I Was There…
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Led Zeppelin O2 Reunion concert was that fans had travelled from all corners of the globe to be there. One such fan was long time TBL supporter, Jose Manuel Parada who travelled from Ecuador and met a fair few of us when he was over. Here is just one example of the unforgettable life affirming experiences that those lucky …

IT’S THE 02 REUNION TEN YEARS GONE WEEK ON TBL WEB – TODAY’S POST TBL ARCHIVE 2009:-
Two years gone and it still seems like a dream. Watching the DVD and playing the vinyl and CD’s today reminded me of the surreal feel that surrounded the whole event. Of course I’m taking about Led Zeppelin at the 02 Arena on the second anniversary of what for me will ever be etched on my brain as the experience of a lifetime. There are some lovely comments on the 02 show by Robert …

Looking back at my diary entry for 28 years ago this very day it started off as a fairly ordinary Thursday.
The night before I’d been to see Rod Stewart at Wembley Arena with good my friends Max, Phil and James .
It was a pretty riotous night – the diary notes that I consumed 6 vodka and limes and a Harvey Wallbanger in the pub before …
