Led Zeppelin ‘will not tour’

Apparently Robert Plant has turned down a £100 million tour offer

Led Zeppelin will not play live again together, according to a source close to the band’s singer, Robert Plant.

The Sunday Mirror newspaper quotes an anonymous source as saying that the band have turned down a £100 million offer to tour, with Plant’s own non-Led Zeppelin musical plans the reason for the decision.

The newspaper quotes the source as saying: “Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money. They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt.

Jimmy [Page, guitarist] enjoyed the concert in December enough to want to tour. He argued they still had something to offer. He likes the idea of another chapter in the band – the grown-up tour.

John [Paul Jones, bassist] sided with Jimmy. He loved making music with the others again. But Robert [Plant] wanted to leave last year’s concert as their legacy. They had proved they could still do it and that was enough.

“He has other commitments and is happier looking forward to those. Robert put the mockers on the tour.”
