(Newser) – Die-hard Led Zeppelin fans revving up for the band's first concert in 17 years are going to have to wait just a little bit longer. The London show scheduled for November 26 has been pushed back to December 10 because guitar god Jimmy Page broke one of his hallowed fingers, E! Online reports.

Page, 63, did not say how the injury occurred, but he is expected to be up and strumming in a few weeks. "I'm disappointed," he said, but the delay "will permit us to perform at the level both the band and our fans have always been accustomed to." The eagerly awaited concert will also feature Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, Foreigner, and Paolo Nutini.
