Robert Plant: No Chance of Led Zeppelin Reunion Show
Robert Plant says that there is “zero” chance of Led Zeppelin reuniting for another performance. Plant made the statement while discussing the band’s forthcoming deluxe reissues with the BBC.
Speaking of the reissues, the band also unveiled previews of two previously unreleased tracks from the project—an early version of their hit “Whole Lotta Love” and a 1970 rendition of the blues classic “Keys to the Highway.” The songs will appear on companion discs with the reissues of Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III, respectively.
As previously reported, Jimmy Page has spent the past few years combing through the band’s catalog to compile the releases. The first three albums, Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III, will be available on June 3 and the next three reissues are due out in 2015.
Led Zeppelin last reunited for a performance in 2007, when Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham’s son Jason Bonham took the stage at London’s O2 Arena during a benefit show honoring the life of music executive Ahmet Ertegun. A recording of the concert was later released as the live album Celebration Day, which won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.
