Robert Plant: ‘Zero’ Chance of Led Zeppelin Reunion
By Annie Reuter
Bad news for Led Zeppelin fans: the band won’t be performing live soon– if ever.
In an interview with the BBC about the reissue of Led Zeppelin’s first three albums, guitarist Jimmy Page said the likelihood of a band reunion show is slim.
“I’m sure people would love to hear it,” Page said. “I’m not the one to be asking, I don’t sing.”
Singer Robert Plant was a little more dire when asked about a reunion show. Along with reiterating Page’s previous statement, he said the chance was “zero.”
Looks like fans will just have to settle for the upcoming bonus disc packaged with the reissue of the band debut album, which will include a Zeppelin show recorded at L’Olympia in Paris on Oct. 10, 1969.
In the meantime, watch the trailer that boasts snippets of Led Zeppelin performing at the 1969 show, as well as vintage images from the era, including concert posters and ticket stubs.
The deluxe editions of Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III will be released on June 3, launching an “extensive reissue program” that will include all nine of the band’s albums in chronological order. All of the albums will be remastered by Page himself. The deluxe version of each album will feature a second disc of unreleased music related to that album.
