Fans Get Hold Of LED ZEPPELIN Tickets

BBC News reports: Thousands of LED ZEPPELIN fans have been notified they were successful in the ticket lottery for the rock band's one-off reunion concert.

Tickets for the show, on November 26 at London's O2 arena, cost of £125 each, plus booking fee.

"Much to my surprise, I'm one of the lucky ones," fan Padraic Conway wrote to the BBC News website. "I'm stunned!"

But many were left disappointed — more than one million people had applied for the 20,000 tickets.

According to fans who e-mailed the BBC, all tickets will have to be picked up in person from the O2 arena. Fans will also be given a wristband which must not be removed before the concert.

The tickets and wristbands will only be available for collection on November 25 and November 26.

The move is likely to be a further attempt to combat touts. On eBay, some lucky applicants are attempting to sell their passwords for the official ticket sale — charging up to £1,000 a time.
