Led Zeppelin reunion raised $41 million
The effects of the 2007 Led Zeppelin reunion are still being felt, almost five years after one of rock's biggest events took place.

The Daily Mail reports funds raised by Zeppelin’s 02 Arena show in December 2007 have been donated to Oxford University.

The £26 million ($41.6 million US) donation, made by Mica Ertegun, widow of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, is understood to be one of the largest in Oxford’s 900-year history.

It will be used to set up the Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities.

The programme will see students worldwide compete for an award to study subjects including literature, history, music, art history, Asian studies, Middle Eastern studies and archaeology.
