Now might be a good time to buy that Powerball lottery ticket. With an estimated 20 million fans already registered for the opportunity to purchase Led Zeppelin tickets, your odds of winning bagfuls of loot are slightly better than those of seeing the mighty Zep at their performance in November.
 
As has been previously reported, the remaining members of the legendary rock group will play a one-off show at the 20,000 O2 Arena in London on November 26th. The concert’s website  has struggled to cope with demand, and organizers have asked fans to be patient.
 
Registration for the £125 tickets closes at midday BST on Monday, September 17th.
 
Tickets for the show will be allocated by public ballot-a move promoter Harvey Goldsmith hopes will deter scalpers. “We just hope and pray that those people who get a ticket in a ballot are just going to act accordingly,” he said.
Goldsmith also warned fans who turn to Internet sites like eBay or other unauthorized sources that they would have their tickets cancelled. “They might have paid their money,” he said, “but they ain’t going to get the ticket."

Led Zeppelin, one of the most popular and influential rock acts of the 1970s, set the template for hard rock and heavy metal. They split in 1980 after drummer John Bonham died, and have only regrouped for a handful of shows and award ceremonies since.
 
Bonham’s son Jason will join the three remaining members-singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy age, and bassist John Paul Jones-for the upcoming concert, which is being held in tribute to music mogul Ahmet Ertegun, who co-founded Atlantic Records and signed Led Zeppelin in 1968. Other acts lined up for the show include Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Paolo Nutini, and Foreigner.
 
The idea for the tribute show came from Ertegun’s widow, according to Goldsmith, who then set about persuading Led Zeppelin to headline. “I wrote to everybody, and, in particular, to Robert and Jimmy and John Paul, and said, ‘Look, this is an opportunity for you to come together and really pay homage to your mentor and mine, and would you do it?’ Much to my amazement, they came back and said yes,” he said.
 
Goldsmith also stated that the band “have no plans to tour, but hopes they will.”
