Led Zeppelin’s one-off 2007 show was one of the biggest spectacles rock music has ever produced and the aftermath of the reunion is still being felt, nearly 5 years after the event took place at London’s O2 Arena.

The Daily Mail (via HenneMusic) have reported that funds raised from the show, which took place in in December 2007, have been donated to Oxford University in order to fund the Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities.

The mammoth donation of £26 million, made by Mica Ertegun the widow of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, is one of the largest in the prestigious University’s 900-history.

Oxford vice-chancellor Andrew Hamilton said:

‘The money from the concert was a magnificent moment that allowed the funding, a number of years ago, of both undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships.’
