Jimmy Page donates Zep gig tickets to charity
eBay auction to help Brazilian street kids
Jimmy Page has donated a pair of tickets for Led Zeppelin's December 10 reunion gig at London's O2 arena to Brazilian street kids charity Task Brasil.
Page is a long-term supporter of the charity, and helped establish Rio's Casa Jimmy - one of the organisation's projects which "improve the lives and support the needs of children and pregnant teenage girls living on the streets of Brazil".
Page said: “These tickets are intended to raise awareness of and aid the fundraising activities of Task Brasil and Casa Jimmy."
As well as getting to enjoy the music, the winner of the eBay auction gets to mingle at the post-gig party.
The bidding ends at 18.44 on Monday 19 November, and currently stands at an impressive £6,600. ®
Just keep the real
drugs away from them, and they will be good enough. Sudden death is hard on reunion acts, but I have known musicians to be entertaining well into their eighties, it's not as physically demanding when you don't fuck around so much on stage, and just play.
Re Screwed already...
Proof that you can't win either way. Jimmy's just using his position to promote a cause he believe in. I can't prove it but I'm sure I've seen much lesser 'artists' charging similar prices for their gig's. I just wish I'd got the chance to give them my debit card number :( .

Nah. Nothing to do with practise. Everything to do with The Eagles new release...
