New month: Still awaiting ticket notification

Now that it is Oct. 1, it is odd that I know of nobody who has been notified that they may purchase tickets to the Led Zeppelin reunion concert. Originally, the plan was for lucky selected pre-registrants to have been notified by today, but that deadline was reported to have shifted along with the pre-registration deadline due to difficulties experienced in accessing the overloaded Web site. Has anyone been notified?

UPDATE: Thanks to the anonymous tipster who pointed out that the official Web site has been updated today to say the following:

1st October 2007
The registration has now closed. Successful applicants will receive
notification emails in the next 24 hours. For further information please see

The updated FAQs say:

If I am successful, how will I be contacted?
The ballot has now been drawn and the successful applicants will receive an email in the next 24 hours. This email will contain all the information you need to purchase your tickets.
What happens to any remaining unsold tickets?
Once the successful applicants have completed their purchases any remaining tickets will be offered in a second round of random selection of remaining applicants from the original registration.

When will the second round of tickets be offered?
Please keep checking this website for updates. ...

As such, any updates to that Web site will be carried here.


  1. Steve,

    All official sites state that successful applicants will be notified prior to 1 October....I like you have not heard of one person who has been notified. I wasn't aware of any extension to the notification date.?

    Looks like I will have to try and buy tickets from someone who will no doubt want thousands of pounds for each one!!........

  2. Thousands of pounds indeed. Someone forwarded me a link today to a broker's site selling two tickets for $10,925 each, which converts to over £5,383.

    You probably already know that if you are purchasing a ticket whose unique identifying numbers have been disclosed, the promoters are likely to render it inoperative. Paying the price quoted above for a deactivated ticket is risky, to say the least.

    Also, consider the better use of that money considering it could have benefited the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, providing higher education for a student in England, the United States or Turkey, who cannot afford to attend a university.

  3. Web site now says successful applicants have been picked and should expect an e-mail in the next 24 hours!!

  4. Thanks so much for the tip, anonymous tipster! Blog entry now updated.

  5. I did get the email and bought tickets. The email I received was sent a little before 1:00 p.m. U.S. Central time on Monday the 1st.
