La vuelta a los escenarios de Led Zeppelin prevista para el 26 de Noviembre ha quedado pospuesta para el próximo día 10 de Diciembre, el motivo de este retraso de dos semanas no es otro que la fractura de un dedo de Jimy Page.
Todas las entradas serán validas para la nueva fecha, aunque también si no es posible acudir a al concierto en la nueva fecha, estas podrán ser devueltas hasta el próximo día 14 de Noviembre.
El propio Page ha declarado sentirse decepcionado por tener que posponer el concierto, pero que no hay otro remedio pues este incidente impedirá ensayar al guitarrista en las próximas semanas.
No es la primera vez que una cosa parecida le sucede a Page , pues en vísperas de la gira del 75 ya se rompió un dedo tal como podemos apreciar en la foto, aunque esta vez, 30 años después le costará un poco mas recuperarse.

AHMET ERTEGUN TRIBUTE CONCERT POSTPONED UNTIL DECEMBER 10th
Led Zeppelin Guitarist Jimmy Page Fractures Finger
The Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert, originally scheduled for Monday, November 26th and featuring Led Zeppelin, Bill Wyman and the Rhythm Kings, Paul Rogers, Paolo Nutini, and Foreigner has been postponed until December 10th due to Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page fracturing his finger.
The injury to Page’s finger, which was sustained this past weekend, will not allow him to play guitar for 3 weeks.
The specialist treating Mr. Page said, “I have examined the fracture to Mr. Page’s finger, and it is my opinion that with proper rest and treatment, he will be ready to resume rehearsing in three weeks time, and thus able to perform on December 10.”
Jimmy Page added, “I am disappointed that we are forced to postpone the concert by two weeks. However, Led Zeppelin have always set very high standards for ourselves, and we feel that this postponement will enable my injury to properly heal, and permit us to perform at the level that both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to.”

MESSAGE FROM JIMMY PAGE TO O2 ATTENDEES:
JP Email sent to ticket holders: «As you all know by now I was regrettably put in a situation where I had to postpone my performance at the Ahmet Ertegun Benefit show, on November 26th, due to a fractured finger. We have now rescheduled this show to take place, at the same venue, on December 10th. In doing so I was very conscious of the fact that many people are travelling great distances to attend. I do want to let everyone know that this decision was unavoidable. My apologies to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this change.
I would also like to thank everyone else involved for their help with making this change. Harvey Goldsmith, the trustees of the Ahmet Ertegun Foundation and, of course, the other artists who so willingly agreed to join us on the show. I look forward to the 10th December!»
