Led Zeppelin fans launch online petition for world tour

Plant, Page and co urged to hit the road by fans

An online petition to get Led Zeppelin to undertake a world tour has been created on campaigning site Youchoose.net.

Over 8,000 people have signed up so far.

The manifesto for the petition outlines the belief that it wasn’t fair that UK fans got to see Led Zeppelin at their reunion concert at London’s O2 Arena on December 10 last year, and that the band should, as a consequence, tour the globe.

The organisers of the petition claim to be in contact with Led Zeppelin’s promoter, and claim that they are “excited over the interest” the petition has generated so far.
