Robert Plant and co in talks to play UK stadiums

Led Zeppelin are currently ‘considering a tour’, according to sources at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, who are attempting to book the band for the venue.

Welsh Rugby Union chief executive Roger Lewis, who is involved in the stadium and is a friend of Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, told the Wales On Sunday that venue officials were talking to Harvey Goldsmith, the band’s promoter, about the possible gig.

“Initially Harvey said they were only going to do a one-off gig, but now they are considering a tour,” Lewis explained.

“We [the Millenium Stadium] are the only stadium in Britain with a retractable roof and we can guarantee a perfect event for 70,000 people. There’s nowhere else in the country that can do that.”
