Led Zeppelin rumours 'Are True'

Rumours of a worldwide LED ZEPPELIN tour following their triumphant one-off reunion gig earlier this month (Dec07) are true, according to a source close to the band.
Members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham have so far refused to be drawn on any future plans to reunite.
But a source close to the rockers has confirmed they are in negotiations to put on an 18-month world tour extravaganza later next year (08).
The pal tells British newspaper the Daily Express, “It will kick off at next year’s Glastonbury after Robert Plant has finished touring with American country star Alison Krauss.
“Plant and Krauss have a new album out right now and he is committed to that for the next couple of months at least.” The rock legends have been inundated with pleas from fans to follow up their hugely successful London show on 10 December (07) with a full-on tour.

Rumours, Stories and more...

What Makes Led Zeppelin one of the greatest bands in the world (THE greatest in my humble opinion)?

Well, there’s no one thing that can all out say why they are so spectacular… Amazing Sound? Amazing Visuals? Amazing Songs? Well, they no doubt have all of the above, but there is something more that Zeppelin possess that makes them so sought after.

The Mystery that surrounds the band. From the start Peter Grant and Jimmy Page made the band out to be this mysterious beast that would be let out to play, AS and WHEN they deemed it fit, or beneficial to the band.

This mysterious band, made them one of the most hated band of the 70’s from the press, but even that didn’t put the band off. Equally, the fans never gave up.

Breaking records of the highest grossing gigs and most fans in venues, Zeppelin We’re the biggest thing of the 70’s! and this mysterious edge seriously did them NO Harm.

So its no surprise that nearly 30 years on from the death of Drummer, John Bonham, The band are still faithful to using the methods they used all those years ago.

Producing hype, secret rehearsals to get into shape for a one off gig that took the world by storm, and then, media silence! What better way to sell records, and get EVERYBODY in the world talking about them again? “Will they tour? wont they? whats going on? what will they do next". It is utterly fabulous to see the fans working for the band creating a hype of rumours and stories.

But of course, unless it comes from the horses mouth, assume Zeppelin will not play another gig. But nevertheless the rumours are fun.

Comment some of the rumours you may have read/heard… I’m intrigued to hear them :)

Jason Bonham talks about prospect of future Led Zeppelin Tour...

Jason Bonham, who joined Led Zeppelin on drums for their recent reunion show has been speaking about the possibility of more shows.

Bonham, the son of original Zeppelin sticksman John Bonham said that as the “new guy”, he’s unaware of any plans to tour again.

“There’s been no talks except to Jimmy (Page) and Robert (Plant) and John Paul (Jones), just to say thanks for the best Christmas present I could ask for,” Bonham told Billboard.

He went on to say: “If they do it again, of course I would love to. But that’s up to them. Only time will tell. If you’d have asked me a year ago, ‘Are they gonna do a date next year?,’ I’d have gone, ‘No way!’ So I was proved wrong once before.”

Bonham is currently the drummer with Foreigner.

As previously reported, bookers at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium are talking to Led Zeppelin about a possible show at the venue.
