Led Zeppelin Tour Plans On Hold Until September

Led Zeppelin Tour Plans On Hold Until September

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has spoken to reporters in Japan, about the reunited band's possible tour plans.

There has been much speculation that the band will tour after the huge success of their one-off reunion show at London's O2 Arena in tribute to late Atlantic records founder Ahmet Ertegun last month.

Page, speaking to reporters in Tokyo, has said that it would be impossible to make any decisions about staging more shows until Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant finishes touring with Alison Krauss, for his recent collaborative album 'Raising Sand'.

Page said: “Robert Plant has a parallel project running and he’s really busy with that project," he explained. "Certainly until September, so I can’t give you any news.”

However, the guitarist also added, more positively that: “I can assure you the amount of work that we put into the O2, for ourselves rehearsing and the staging of it was probably what you put into a world tour".

You can catch Plant and Krauss performing 'Raising Sand' live at the following venues:

Birmingham, NIA (May 5)
Manchester, Apollo (7)
Cardiff, International Arena (8)
London, Wembley Arena (22)
Dusseldorf, Philipshalle (10)

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
