Page Confirms Zep Shows

Jimmy Page Confirms More Led Zeppelin Shows
by Paul Cashmere - June 9 2008

Led Zep guitar legend Jimmy Page has confirmed that there will be more Zeppelin shows.

Speaking to the Telegraph after the Foo Fighters Wembley gig on the weekend, Page said that the band is ready to reunite and perform more live events.

Led Zeppelin reformed for a one-off show at the O2 Arena in London last December to pay tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

A fully-fledged world tour for 2008 was out of the question because of prior touring commitments for lead singer Robert Plant. Plant is currently touring the US in support of his album with Alison Krauss.

Page suggested that the Led Zeppelin tour won't happen until the second half of 2009.

Meanwhile, Robert Plant is performing a number of Led Zeppelin songs with Krauss on their current tour. 'When The Levee Breaks', 'Black Dog', and 'The Battle of Evermore' have been played on this tour.

{ This is exciting news! Though we have to wait quite a bit. In the meantime we just might get a new release from the guys :) }
