Led Zeppelin to tour again
I think this is a British tabloid, but if it's true..
It remains to be seen if:
1. They actually do this and
2. They call it Led Zeppelin
Heck, I'd go.
NP: Kate Bush, The Sensual World
Considering the tabloid source...I have one question
Will John Bonham be reincarnated to play?
Will Jimi Hendrix open?
Heh. I'll believe it when I see it. This story comes out every couple of years like clockwork, along with the "Waters to rejoin Pink Floyd" story and the "Rolling Stones to retire" story.
I caught Plant/Page on their last US tour (was it '95 or so?). Nothing but vintage and somewhat obscure LZ, played to perfection (no solo stuff at my show, and no Stairway to Heaven). Looked like they had Plants back-up band. For me, it was a religious experience. Openning with the Wanton Song brought me to tears. If they tour again, I'll be there, but I really don't think they should call it Led Zep, but then again, who cares? If they tour, and dig deep into the LZ catalog, it will be will worth seeing then again. IMHO. BL
I saw Page and Plant 5 times at the Palace over their last two tours. 5 best concerts I ever went to. I can't imagine if they toured as Page/Plant or Zeppelin that it would make much different. The first time I saw them they did a few solo songs each (one from Coverdale/Page ). Porl Thomson of the Cure was the bass player, so they did Lullaby - very, very cool.
The thing that really struck me each time that I saw them (I was on the floor up close for 2 of them) was that Page and Plant truly looked like they were having the time of their lives up there and seemed full of energy you rarely see on stage (well, maybe not during No Quarter).
Incidentally, they opened with The Wanton song each time. So did the Black Crowes when Page joined them.
What are they gonna call the tour? "Wheelchair to Heaven"?
The tour rumor has been officially debunked by Led Zeppelin's management. It was a nice fantasy, though...
Looking at the photo accompanying the cited article, I can only wonder: When did Gene Wilder join Led Zep???
I saw Page/Plant on the last tour. I think it was for the horrid "Clarksdale" album.
As previously posted they opened with "The Wanton Song" and it was incredible!! Other songs were Gallows Pole, Heartbreaker, Dazed and Confused, Whole Lotta Love. I could go on. The encore was Black Dog and Rock N Roll. The drummer was Michael Lee who was quite good and was a good pick to stand in for Bonham.
What made it better was that I had third row floor seats!! The shine of Page's Les paul was blinding.
Ever see JPJ in concert? Excellent! He deserves a LOT more respect than he gets.
Hmm, looks like Cinescape has picked up on this also.
Maybe Dolly Parton could join them on stage for a duet of Stairway to Heaven.
