Robert Plant denies that the band will tour
Last week, reports that rock legends, Led Zeppelin would reunite for one last show reached a critical mass with many news sources including World Entertainment News Network broadcasting the rumours as fact.
However, Robert Plant, the band’s lead singer has now assured fans that he will not be coming together with Jimmy Page, John-Paul Jones and Jason Bonham (John Bonham’s son) in a tribute concert for the founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun.
This ‘final show’ would have been the third reunion for the band since they split in 1980.
Their previous two reunions were the Live Aid concert in 1985, and then the 40th anniversary of Atlantic Records in 1988.
Led Zeppelin’s last live concert before the death of their drummer, John Bonham, was back in 1980 on the 7th July in Berlin, Germany at Eissporthalle.
The band’s largest performance since the band formed in 1968 took place a year before at Knebworth festival where they performed in front of 420,000 people.
After announcing that the band is waiting for a date for their final reunion performance, Robert Plant said, ‘If there was one, then there wouldn’t be enough doctors to support it’, which suggests that the idea of a reunion is off.
