Led Zeppelin to Reunite
ROCK legends LED ZEPPELIN are set for a reunion tour after singer ROBERT PLANT finally caved in and agreed to join them.
Guitarist JIMMY PAGE, 64, bassist JOHN PAUL JONES, 62, and drummer JASON BONHAM, 42, had resigned themselves to touring without Plant.
They even rehearsed with stand-in singers - and one American was so impressive they were confident they could hit the road next year without Plant.
That was what finally persuaded him to return.
A source revealed: “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 realised the band were serious about doing it without him, it made him think long and hard.
“He realised 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, set for next summer, follows the massive success of their one-off reunion show at London’s O2 Arena in December.
Led Zep, who have sold more than 300million albums worldwide, formed in 1968 and split up in 1980 when drummer John Bonham - father of Jason —-died aged 32.
Rolling Stone magazine dubbed them the biggest band of the ’70s.
(One can only hope that it really does happen. For me I would be happy with new music from them.)
