Last night, 20,000 fans heard Led Zeppelin play its first concert in 27 years — the group disbanded in 1980, after drummer John Bonham died. For this reunion show in London, Bonham's son Jason played drums.

The face value of tickets for the concert was about $250, but some paid as much as $2,000. One fan, Kenneth Donnell, paid even more than that: $168,000. Donnell, from Glasgow, Scotland, shelled out the big bucks for a good cause: He won two tickets in a charity auction. He talks about whether the show was worth that kind of money.
