Led Zeppelin returns to stage for first concert in nearly 3 decades

LONDON (AP) -- The consensus seems to be that Led Zeppelin's reunion performance for charity more than lived up to the hype. The reunited rock 'n' roll legends played their first full concert in nearly three decades in London last night, weaving classics like "Stairway to Heaven" and "Black Dog" with the thumping "Kashmir" and the hard-rocking "Dazed and Confused." The band's three surviving members, singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones, were joined by the late drummer John Bonham's son Jason on drums. The show got rave reviews and the 59-year-old Plant destroyed all rumors that he could no longer reproduce his trademark wailing vocals. Though the show was supposed to be a one-time event, there have been rumors that if all went well, it would kick off a world tour. Plant has seemed to play down those rumors, but last night's show left fans screaming for more. Tickets for the show were won in an Internet lottery and one man paid more than $150,000 for his pair.
