Led Zeppelin Will Reunite – for ‘Letterman’ Interview

The surviving members of Led Zeppelin will make a rare appearance together on "Late Show With David Letterman" on Dec. 3, CBS said Friday.

With the exception of a one-off tribute concert for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun at London's O2 Arena in 2007 — which was released as the DVD "Celebration Day" in October — Jones has largely been estranged from Page and Plant since the group's 1980 breakup following drummer John Bonham's death.

The "Late Show" appearance won't be the only time that Letterman hangs out with the rock legends — the group, along with Letterman, will be lauded at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., which will take place Dec. 2 and air Dec. 26 on CBS.
