“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,” Page’s medical specialist said in a statement.
The guitarist 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.”
Tickets for the original concert will be honored at the rescheduled date and anyone who desires a refund can get it at the point of purchase prior to noon (Greenwich MeanTime) on November 14.
Refunded tickets will be made available to random ballot winners selected from the original registrations.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, which provides scholarships to universities in the U.S., U.K. and Turkey, Ertegun’s birthplace.
