Robert Plant told Planet Rock Magazine that the inspiration for the last Led Zeppelin show, held on December 10, 2007 at the 02 Arena in London in honor of the then-recently deceased Ahmet Ertegun, which united the original trio formed by Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, was inspired by the final Pink Floyd reunion at Live 8 in 2005, the last time David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright took the stage.
“I liked what Floyd did at Live 8, a unique event and we’re going to leave it all like that.” They did it for a good cause. It was the same thing that happened to Zeppelin at that charity event in honor of Ahmet. We had an affinity for long time with him, so if there was a reason a meeting would be that one. But I don’t see the idea of touring the following summer and moving on,”he said.
