Led Zeppelin to reunite?

Perhaps the greatest rock band of all, the legendary Led Zeppelin, have announced that they plan to reunite in a memorial concert in tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, the late head of Atlantic Records. Following that performance (the date is TBA), if all goes well, they plan to mount a full scale tour possibly next year. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones would perform with Jason Bonham (son of the late John Bonham) on drums.

Led Zeppelin officially disbanded in 1980 following the death of Bonham. There have been a few sporadic performances since then, most notably at Live Aid in 1985 and the Plant/Page collaborations & tours throughout the 90's. Robert Plant has also had a successful solo career in the interim. But fans who have waited for a full fledged Zeppelin reunion and tour look like they will be getting their wish. Keep checking back here as we will be sure to update with any new info. in what would no doubt be one of the most highly anticipated tours in recent memory.

Update - Despite recent reports of a Led Zeppelin reunion, lead singer Robert Plant has laughed off these rumors saying "If there was [a Zeppelin reunion], then there wouldn't be enough doctors to support it!". Unfortunately it seems that rumors of the reunion may be just that, rumors. At least for now. Stay tuned.....

Dodgers vs. Angels Freeway Series 6/15-6/17

This coming weekend marks the Dodger Stadium portion of the Freeway Series matchup here in the Los Angeles area. The Dodgers will be looking for revenge after being swept by the Angels at Angel Stadium back in May. With the Dodgers currently 1 game out of 1st place in the highly contested NL West and the Angels firmly entrenched in 1st place in the AL West, this weekend's series looks to be at the top of most local sports fans must see list. With Father's Day being on Sunday, that will only add to the appeal of this matchup. Looking for tickets to any of the 3 games at Dodger Stadium? Be sure to check our website www.ticketrequest.com We have all seating locations available to fit any budget.

Ducks win the Stanley Cup

Congratulations to the Anaheim Ducks winning the Stanley Cup!

This marks the first time that an NHL team from the state of California has ever won the cup. We definitely experienced our share of the Ducks frenzy here at our office over the course of the past few weeks. We had the pleasure of helping many of our customers obtain tickets to the sold out games at the Honda Center and experience this once in a lifetime event. Hopefully the Ducks winning the Stanley Cup and electrifying southern California in the process, will help propel hockey into more of a prominent role in the southern California landscape in the years to come. As always, you can obtain premium or sold out tickets to Ducks and or Kings games next season through our site www.ticketrequest.com

Rage Against the Machine, Smashing Pumpkins, Chris Cornell, Velvet Revolver/Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam

Some well known 90's rock icons have been making some serious headlines lately.....

Fresh off their triumphant reunion at the Coachella Festival and their highly anticipated upcoming appearances as part of the Rock the Bells tour, rumors are swirling about a full fledged Rage Against the Machine reunion tour. The buzz is focused on http://www.ratm82407.com/ where the RATM logo sits above a countdown clock (approx. 4 days and change remaining). Word is the clock is counting down to a special announcement regarding RATM. Stay tuned as we will be sure to post any new developments here....... and we will be sure to be carrying tickets to this highly anticipated tour on our site www.ticketrequest.com

Since recently departing the now defunct supergroup Audioslave, legendary Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has been hard at work on his second solo cd "Carry On" (his first being the excellent and underappreciated '99 release "Euphoria Morning"). Release date was Tuesday 6/5. His tour in support of the new material is under way. He will even be making an appearance on the Tonight Show 6/6. Be sure to check our website www.ticketrequest.com to see if he will be playing in your area and keep checking back as more dates get added thru the late summer into fall.

90's alt rock heavyweights Smashing Pumpkins have recently reformed (singer and leader Billy Corgan and drummer Matt Chamberlain are the only remaining members) and have announced a string of dates in San Francisco and North Carolina (in which the demand was so high that the ticket site server crashed). Expect a full fledged reunion tour to be announced shortly. You can check on tickets for the San Francisco and North Carolina shows through our site www.ticketrequest.com as well as all future Pumpkins dates.

Another former rumor that has now become fact, is supergroup Velvet Revolver (former members of Stone Temple Pilots and Guns and Roses) teaming up with the remaining members of the legendary Seattle band Alice in Chains for a late summer/fall tour. Dates are expected to be announced very soon. Be sure to check our site www.ticketrequest.com for tickets once dates have been confirmed.

And perhaps the most iconic 90's band of all Pearl Jam, are continuing their latest successful tour overseas culminating in their headlining the legendary festival Lollapalooza (which is now a 3 day festival in Chicago.) No word on whether they will be playing any additonal U.S. dates, stay tuned....
