    Led Zeppelin are to reunite for a one-off concert later this year.

    Frontman Robert Plant confirmed the news by telling a fan he was on his way to meet bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones to discuss the special show.

    The fan, who asked Plant if rumors of a reunion were true, told NME.com, "He said to me, 'How did you find out about this? Well we've got a band meeting about it later on. There's not a lot to work out as it's only going to be one-off gig.' "

    The band will reportedly perform at London's The O2 arena in November for a charity show organized by promoter Harvey Goldsmith.

    It has long been rumoured the legendary group, who disbanded in 1980 after drummer John Bonham died, would reform for a concert to honour the memory of late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun.

    The surviving members have only performed twice since - at Live Aid in 1985 and when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

    The group's 1971 song 'Stairway to Heaven' was recently named the best rock song of all time, after winning 70 percent of the vote in a poll by British radio station Planet Rock, despite never actually being released as a single.

    However, the rock ballad is one of the most covered of all time and has been sung by a host of stars, including Dolly Parton and Rolf Harris.

    Planet Rock presenter Mark Jeeves said, "The number one may be seen as a rock cliché but the truth is that it's probably the only rock song ever written that fans agree is a classic.

    "After all these years, there's still nothing to touch it."


    Dolly Parton?
    WTF?

    Here's hoping they're better now than at Live Aid.

    I'd put my money on Jason Bonham or Ringo's lad...

    but it sounds good, hope they are all in shape though, hate for it to be like those earlier The Who reunion gigs, those were dire...

    Jason can do just fine, believe me...

    Nobody would replace Bonzo, but his boy is very capable.

    I think Jason is the #1 pick for drums right now, I have no idea why Zak would be involved. He doesn't seem like a fit for Zeppelin.
