LED ZEPPELIN to Tour in 2009 !
MUSIC NEWS - The UK press is reporting today that Led Zeppelin will reform for a major tour in 2009 ! Just last week, it was said that Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were so determined to tour as Led Zeppelin, they were even considering hiring a new singer (like YES and QUEEN). According to the British, The Sun newspaper, such a shocker convinced singer Robert Plant to commit to a tour. A source is quoted as saying: "The rest of the band had all but given up on Robert joining them, but they were determined to go ahead so had started to seriously explore other avenues. "When Robert realized the band were serious about doing it without him, it made him think long and hard. "He realized he couldn't face the thought of not being involved. The band were over the moon when he told them the news. "They are now forging ahead with the tour plans and they can't wait to get on the road." The tour is rumored for summer 2009 (can anyone say- STADIUMS), and follows on Led Zeppelin's reunion show at London's O2 Arena in December 2007. For most of 2008, Plant had been concentrating on touring for his duet album with Alison Kraus, Raising Sand. The band will be joined by drummer Jason Bonham, son of original drummer John Bonham (who died at age 32). We look forward to an itinerary and ticket sale dates !!
