    Existing thread is locked but if a mod thinks we should use that one, cool. Lock this, unlock that and we can move over...

    Mind you until I see the actual press release / press conference I won't believe it.

    http://www.ledzeppelin.com/

    It could just be that the hits album is being released on that day. And why use an US style date for a gig announcement in the UK? Makes no sense.

    I've heard about Zep reunions...for 15 years now. I'll believe it when I see it.


    and the time has past...It would be a lot of hype...and I don't think it would be all that great.

    Praise Boognish.

    Without John Bonham, Zep is NOTHING.

    Well, half of Bonham's genes may be represented the drum kit.

    Jimmy Page diminished significantly in skill ever since his heroin/alcohol/cocaine addiction, and Robert Plant's voice is pretty much shot.

    Maybe they could be like Cream and not even try to be their old selves. But all original members of Cream are still alive...

    I dunno, sounds reasonable to me. Not gonna have the same upper range as in his 20s of course, but there seems enough grunt there still.

    As for Page, he's always been sloppy live. Half the charm, really. Mind you I haven't seen any recent footage of him playing live.

    I have seen that, and yeah. Sloppy alright. But that was 25 years ago, seen any recent footage?

    More info at Billboard

    Here's my theory. The date on the Led Zep site just refers to the release date of (another) hits package "Mothership".

    I'm inclined to believe that Led Zep will reform to play the one-off tribute concert to Atlantic records founder Ahmet Ertegun in late November. Cream will also play at that show, I reckon (there's been rumours of a one-off show this year where Cream will play).

    I did put a link to this thread in the new one.

    Anyway, if it does eventuate it'll be a one-off show - the rumoured Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert, not a tour.

    So, the ballot was drawn yesterday. Anyone here get drawn and now has the opportunity to buy tickets?

    When I registered the site crashed, so I have no idea if my application even went through. :(

    The only other reunion other than the Atlantic Records show will be when Plant,
    Page and Jones kill themselves to join Bonham.[face_beatup] Perhaps they can have a Spinal Tap moment and choke on the drummers vomit.

    Page broke his finger - concert delayed 2 weeks.

    Sucks if you're flying in, got time off work and bought plane tickets etc.

    It could be one of two things: Very interesting or outright terrifying. Now, hopefully, it'll be the former, but they are all running sixty. . .

    If true, it would suck to be the person who paid 83,000 pounds for a pair of tickets to next months's "one off" concert at auction.
