Jimmy Page Nixes Led Zeppelin Summer Tour Rumors
Jimmy Page has quelled rumors that Led Zeppelin will tour this summer. In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Page mentioned that if the group does tour, it wont be until at least September, due to singer Robert Plants previous summer commitments. The former Led Zeppelin singer recently released the hit bluegrass album Raising Sand with Alison Krauss and the pair are in the process of lining up a world tour. As previously reported, Plant and Krauss will play a limited number of U.S. shows this April, fronting an all-star band that includes veteran producer T-Bone Burnett. After hitting Europe in May, Plant and Krauss are expected to tour North America extensively throughout the summer.
‘Robert Plant has a parallel project Page told the Associated Press, and he is busy with that until September.’ By all accounts, Led Zeppelins core members seemed happy with their recent reunion at London’s 02 Arena. Neither Page nor Plant has ruled out the possibility of a fall tour after the singer finishes his commitments behind Raising Sand. Plant will open his upcoming tour with Krauss at Louisville, KYs Louisville Palace Theatre on April 20.
