From Metal Hammer:

Could the legendary guitarist be hinting at a full tour?

LED ZEPPELIN may embark on a full-scale tour after their reunion gig, according to guitarist Jimmy Page.

The band, who are gearing up for their one-off show at the O2 arena in honour of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, are considering doing a string of dates as Page thinks it would be selfish of the band to put all their energy into just one gig.

“It’s a bit silly not to because there is such massive demand,” said Jimmy, who is resting up his injured finger, to Guitar World magazine.
“It’s a bit selfish to do just one show. If that’s it, we probably shouldn’t have taken the genie out of the bottle.”

The band’s rescheduled gig at the O2 Arena will take place on December 10.

LED ZEPPELIN releases its new best-of collection, “Mothership", today (November 13).

According to The Sun, banned LED ZEPPELIN classic “Stairway To Heaven” returned to its spiritual home in London thanks to a gang of committed air guitarists. The track, which features on the rockers’ new “Mothership” greatest hits collection, has long been unwelcome on Denmark Street — home to the capitalÂ’s largest concentration of guitar shops.

Frustrated staff have consistently refused permission for wannabe axe Gods to perform the track while testing new instruments because punters regularly mangle the extraordinary solo — perfected on record by Jimmy Page.

Guitarists across the country were invited to take part in the performance.

Embarassingly however, just one intrepid guitar-slinger took his life into his own hands by setting up shop on the venerable thoroughfare in order to blast the song out once more.

More happily scores of supportive passers-by lent moral support to the hapless strummer by joining in on air guitar.
