Robert Plant considers Led Zeppelin Reunion Tour in 2014

Robert Plant is finally ready to talk about a possible Led Zeppelin reunion in 2014. The rock legend appeared on 60 minutes (Australia) and talked about the reason for Led Zeppelin’s inactivity. Plant was quoted saying “Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me”. He added, “I’m not the bad guy, You need to see the Capricorns. I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”

This is obviously huge news for fans who have been waiting for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour since 2007 O2 Arena concert. Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham were all on board to keep the band going after the hugely successful one-off show. They actually went as far as auditioning singers to fill the spot. Robert Plant, who was touring with Alison Krauss at the time, initially had no interest in revisiting the past. He went on to record and tour with The Band of Joy. Hopefully Robert will finally see the light and give Led Zeppelin fans what they’ve been waiting for all these years.
