Led Zeppelin gearing up for a reunion tour?

There are some pretty strong rumors swirling that the Led Zeppelin is going to head out on tour in 2008.

How amazing would this be? Normally I'm not one to even think twice about shelling out big money for concert tickets but I would think long and hard about doing it this time if they come to my area.

I'd pay a HUGE amount of cash to go to that one.

Re: Led Zeppelin gearing up for a reunion tour?

Now while it wasn't Led Zeppelin, I did see Robert Plant and Jimmy Page about 10 years ago (right after they released Walking into Clarksdale) at the Verizon Center, and it was a great show. Here was the playlist:

Overture / The Wanton Song / Bring it on Home / Heartbreaker / Ramble On / Walking into Clarksdale / No Quarter / Shining in the Light / Going to California / Tangerine / Gallows Pole / Heart in your Hand / Babe I'm Gonna leave you / How Many More Times with Killing Floor / Most High / Whole lotta Love

Encores: Thank You / Rock and Roll

That would be jammin!

Unconfirmed but here you have it.......

I talked to a good friend thats a producer at a local classic rock station and he just told me last week that Zep is gonna rock at Bonnaroo this year. The release should come out in the near future, here are the dates. Great gig!

Yeah everything is still a rumor at this point, but there appears to be quite a bit of smoke:

Re: Led Zeppelin gearing up for a reunion tour?

Well, Van Halen is touring with David Lee Roth again, so I'm believing that there could be more to the Led Zepplin thing.

I'm still kicking myself for not seeing the Eagles in concert, but I'm sure I will catch them on their next "We're retiring" tour...lol!

Would love to see Zep in concert. The only problem I have with these old bands is that the led vocalist usually can't pull the songs off like they once could.

Re: Led Zeppelin gearing up for a reunion tour?

Speaking of older bands, my wife took me to see Bob Dylan at the Patriot Center a few years ago...not only did he not sound much like the CD I bought at the concert and listened to on the way home, we didn't recognize anything he played because his voice is so damn hard to understand.

Re: Led Zeppelin gearing up for a reunion tour?

Refi the house for Zep tix.......$168,500 for a pair...huh? The actual sale price is $250 a pop, they are proud of those pups.

Don't think I'll be seeing the Zep swan song.....
