The surviving members of Led Zeppelin will reunite in November for a concert to honor late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, who signed the group in 1968. The three band members haven't played together since 1988, although rumors of reconciliation have been swirling for several years, and a greatest-hits album is also set for release in November.

Singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones will be joined by Jason Bonham, son of the band's late drummer John Bonham, at London's O2 Arena. The concert will take place in the O2 Stadium in London. Honoree Ertegun died last year; concert proceeds will go toward scholarships in the US, UK and his native Turkey.
