Led Zeppelin’s new concert film has everyone itching again to see the legendary hard rock band live, on stage.
And from the rumors I am hearing, the band may play a one-off gig in New York City in mid December. But that hasn’t been confirmed just yet; more on that when we get it.
I always thought it was kind of weird Led Zeppelin only played that one-off reunion gig in 2007. Like, why practice and rehearse for one show? Why not book a Bonnaroo slot or something, and really rake it in?
Well, according to Rolling Stone, we have Robert Plant to blame for the lack of a Led Zep trek.
“Some of us thought we would be continuing, that there were going to be more concerts in the not-too-distant-future,” Jimmy Page tells Rolling Stone, “because there was a lot of work being put into the show.”
But it was not meant to be.
Ultimately, Robert Plant had no interest in carrying on.
“He was busy,” says Page. “He was doing his Alison Krauss project. I wasn’t fully aware it was going to be launched at the same time. So what do you do in a situation like that? I’d been working with the other two guys for the percentage of the rehearsals at the O2. We were connecting well. The weakness was that none of us sang.”
