Led Zeppelin Plot Return To Madison Square Gardens

Led Zeppelin Plot Return To Madison Square Gardens

Led Zeppelin are today rumoured to be planning a series of shows at New York's legendary Madison Square Gardens venue next year - harking bark to the band's famous three-night sell-out at the same venue in 1973.

According to a 'source' backstage at Monday's (December 10) storming Led Zeppelin reunion concert at London's O2 Arena, the band were overheard talking about their 'three shows at the Garden'.

The source, speaking to The Sun tabloid newspaper said: "The band were really fired up and were talking about their late drummer John Bonham and what he would have thought about it. Then the talk went to, 'what next? Was this it or would there be something else?' One of the guys started talking about their three concerts at the Garden. There was a concensus of, 'Why not?'"

In the hours after the concert on Monday, which was a tribute show for their former Atlantic label boss Ahmet Ertegun, rumours have been abounding about the venues which are apparently 'on hold' for Led Zep shows awaiting the go-ahead from the band.

Touted venues on a possibly two-year-long world tour include the Giants Stadium in New Jersey, and Wembley Stadium in the UK.
