    Description

    Led Zeppelin 1988 TV Performance Agreement. A three-page contract dated March 1, 1988, engaging the band to appear at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Celebration concert, signed by two vice presidents of Led Zeppelin, Inc. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones reunited for the first time since original drummer John Bonham's death in 1977, this time with Bonham's son Jason on drums. The performance was marred by Plant and Page falling out over whether or not to play "Stairway to Heaven" prior to taking the stage, and by a complete loss of Jones' keyboards on the live television feed. The performance was later described as "one big disappointment" by Page and "foul" by Plant. The contract has a couple of staple holes to the top left corner, but is otherwise in Excellent condition.
