LED ZEPPELIN REUNITING FOR GLASTONBURY IN 2010?
October 26, 2009
Led Zeppelin fans’ dreams of seeing the rock supergroup back onstage together have been given a boost by confirmation frontman Robert Plant is considering a slot at next year’s Glastonbury festival in England.
The group sparked reports of a reunion tour after Plant and bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones reteamed for a benefit concert in London in December, 2007, but the singer has since rejected all offers to hit the road with his old pals.
Last year, the rocker continually dismissed reports he’d be rejoining the band for a full reunion, prompting Page and Jones to consider touring without him. But those plans failed to materialize.
And Plant blamed the politics behind the rock legends’ one-off reformation for putting him off a comeback, stating, “The endless paperwork was like nothing I’ve experienced before. I’ve kept every one of the emails that were exchanged before the concert and I’m thinking of compiling them for a book.”
But now it seems Plant could be considering another one-off at Glastonbury, after confirming he has had talks with festival boss Michael Eavis.
He tells the BBC, “There’s place for me there, but I have no idea who with.”
