ROBERT PLANT Agrees To Join LED ZEPPELIN Tour
Posted on Friday, September 26, 2008 at 08:42:10 EST


According to Birminghammail.net, LED ZEPPELIN are finally set to embark on a reunion tour after West Bromwich-born lead singer Robert Plant caved in and agreed to join the rest of the band, it was reported today.

Guitarist Jimmy Page, aged 64, bassist John Paul Jones, 62, and drummer Jason Bonham, 42, son of the late Led Zep drummer John Bonham, from Redditch, were resigned to going on the road without Plant.

They even rehearsed with stand-in singers in preparation for a tour next year following the massive success of a one-off concert at London’s 02 Arena last December.

It is understood that the rehearsals for a replacement lead vocalist finally persuaded Plant, aged 60, who grew up and began his musical career around Kidderminster in Worcestershire, to return to the Led Zeppelin line-up.

Plant, who has been spending a lot of time working with country singer Alison Kraus, helped celebrate last October’s re-opening of Birmingham Town Hall.

A source close to Led Zeppelin said: “The rest of the band had all but given up on Robert joining them, but they were determined to go ahead and had started to seriously explore other avenues.

“When Robert realised the band were serious about doing it without him, he realised he couldn’t face the thought of not being involved.”

I've posted thousands of news stories and when I get behind on it, bam, the story of the year gets by me. :?

Because there is no comments directly from Plant, the rest of the band, or their management, I'm still going to classify this one as unconfirmed.

If you're not joking, that very well may have been the stupidest thing you've ever said. :lol:

I'll bet he could still muddle through most of the songs pretty well... but there are definitely a few songs that they'll have to scratch from the set list.

Robert Plant – Official Statement
29th September 2008
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are currently touring the USA on the last leg of their 'Raising Sand' tour. They played a benefit concert in Oklahoma City for victims of Hurricane Ike last Friday; Austin,Texas last Saturday and tomorrow they play Portland, Oregon before finishing the tour in Saratoga, California on October 5th.

After those dates, Robert has no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years. Contrary to a spate of recent reports, Robert Plant will not be touring or recording with Led Zeppelin. Anyone buying tickets online to any such event will be buying bogus tickets.

“It‘s both frustrating and ridiculous for this story to continue to
rear its head when all the musicians that surround the story are keen to get on with their individual projects and move forward,” Robert Plant said.

“I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects,” he added.
