Led Zeppelin To Tour In 2008?

Well, there’s been no official word as of yet, so whatever you read will be a rumour, unless the band themselves confirm it, I wouldn’t believe it. Of course, the Media will try and make a mountain out of a molehill wherever they turn, as stories that everyone is interested in sell magazines, papers, and get ratings on TV.

With this in mind, what rumours are floating around?

Zeppelin to play Bonnaroo with Metallica? Well as posted earlier, this has been offciially struck off.

There was a rumour that a certain Ian Astbury sent around, and the jury is still out on that one.

The Glastonbury rumour was poo-pooed fairly early on too, but did give a good insight into what the band were thinking, as the response from Glastonbury was that Led Zeppelin wanted more money than they would give. (From what i heard, i cant recall if it was OFFICIAL or not!)

Those are the main rumours that i have noticed floating around;

The band seems divided on where they stand towards a tour;
“I would like to keep this moving,” Jimmy Page told Q music magazine’s January edition.

John Paul Jones said;
“I guess the door has been left slightly ajar. We’ll have to see how we feel about it afterwards. Everybody’s got to really want to do it.”

But Robert Plant seems set on making this the one final gig, with lining up tours next year with Alison Krauss to promote thier new album, Raising Sand.

Whats your opinion?

will Led Zeppelin Tour In 2008?

Is the Led Zeppelin Reunion 2007 going to be their ultimate finale?

Will there be any more reunions in the future?

Comment to have your say!

Bonnaroo festival deny Led Zeppelin rumours

Organisers say Metallica claims are wide of the mark too

Led Zeppelin will not headline the Bonnaroo Festival 2008, despite internet reports.

Rumours that Metallica were also set to play have been denied too.

In a statement to Billboard, organisers Superfly Presents and AC Entertainment explained: “The rumours that are out there about the Bonnaroo 2008 headliners are inaccurate.

“We’re very excited about the line-up that we’re putting together for this year’s festival. We’ll be announcing the confirmed line-up toward the end of January/beginning of February.”

The source of the Led Zeppelin/Metallica rumor was an anonymous email included last week in industry commentator Bob Lefsetz’s newsletter.

'We couldn't just play for 40 minutes' says Jimmy Page

Led Zeppelin have explained that they are planning to perform for two hours at their reunion show at London’s O2 Arena on December 10.

Guitarist Jimmy Page revealed that when the band were first contacted about playing a reunion show, they were asked to play for 40 minutes, but the band thought this was too short.

“When we were first asked to do this [reunion show], we were asked to play a 40-minute set. We soon realised we couldn’t,” he told Q magazine.

“If we go out and play ‘No Quarter’, ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Dazed And Confused’ with all the solos, you’re already talking over an hour.”

He added: “We’ve gone from [planning to play for] 75 minutes to 90, to the best part of two hours.”

Page went on to explain that while Led Zeppelin will play for two hours, he doesn’t think he could handle playing for much longer than that.

“There’s no way I can take on playing three-and-a-half-hour sets now,” he said. “Flying against the wind and the storms, because I just don’t have that energy anymore. But I’ve still got enough in me to get through a two-hour set.”
