Perhaps something is lost in translation, but as I understand it Pink Floyd reunion tours are postponed because Roger Waters is a dick weed. 

:hysterical: 

That was a very good one!  Made me almost spit my drink out!

Says it all really...the question now is what is he going to perform (and will it be with Jeff Beck which is what the poster seems to imply)?

Excited! With or without Jeff. I'm just happy he's performing. Also hoping more is coming.

Absolutely, the Harper thing, Page was tip-top. This strangeness also happend in 77', Page would be playing with electric,

songs sometimes in a shambles. Then comes the acoustic set, is there even one where Page plays sloppily ?.? No nonsense please he's sitting down. I have Page's profile( overlong arms AND big hands), I can do the "almost at the knees"

thing, it's rock not jazz. Anyway people who are not nervous I don't think realize that people like Page can almost get

to  the point of meltdown given certain situations. Also many good/great boots Page often starts a bit shakily the first

few  songs. Page has said this himself, not just my BS. Also read the ARMS interviews, early Firm interviews, you would

be  amazed at Jimmy's rather fragile mental makeup and lack of confidence. It's as if  he never was in Zep.

Am I missing something? Does the poster actually state that jimmy will perform? All I can see is "+ live performance".

Everyone is excited about the prospect of maybe Jimmy and a guitar again, because as I have said before, music needs Jimmy Page. As the song goes, "It's been a long time since I rock n rolled" and people want to see the king return to his rightful place; picking up a 6 string either electric or acoustic, people just want to hear and see him making magic again. It inspires people to be better and inspires people to reach out to that next horizon

^ I want electric Jimmy, cranked up n nasty. I'm sure his girlfriend has seen him at home raking away at the acoustic quite often. I think she deserves to see the old man "perform" on stage with some rockin' shit! If I were Jimmy, thats what I'd be thinking too (male ego).

Ow gosh the male ego. :lol:  I don't know about that. But my  own ears and little Zep heart agree very much. I hope he let's the loud out!

I don't know if it was just rhetoric but when Page was recently interviewed about his involvement with charity Outside Edge — a theatre group to help recovering addicts — he talked about his stage fright and how in the lead up to the O2 he actually used the adrenaline in a positive manner, whereas before it subjugated him. It almost sounded like he had spoken to a psychologist or had a major shift in his mindset about how he dealt with his nerves. Who knows, many top level performers take beta blockers to stop shakes, etc. (especially classical musicians), so maybe he is taking some prescribed meds instead of JD these days! Whatever he's doing, the O2 is the most confident I've seen him in years on stage. No doubt the extensive rehearsals and positive mood in the Zep camp were also massive factors. I'm hoping if he plays, he can bring some of that bravado and swagger on stage with him.

Jimmy Page

japan-poster

The top of the poster for the Classic Rock Awards 2016 (Classic Rock Magazine) •Will Jimmy Page perform at the Classic Rock Awards in Tokyo on November 11? No, probably not, but the Japanese poster promoting the event seems to suggest he will, and that has kickstarted speculation online over what will happen at the event. Page is given top billing alongside Jeff Beck, who definitely will perform, and the poster has “live performance” at the top. But Page hasn’t performed in years, not counting an impromptu performance on French television in 2014 and an on-stage jam at the Founders Award in Seattle last year. There are two likely outcomes here: The poster and speculation has all been a mix-up caused by promoters looking to maximise the appeal of the event, or Page will join in as part of an on-stage jam at the event.

TBL tend to be pretty clued in, so maybe they've heard something? Shame. If it's a "seven guitarists on stage" type jam that's fair enough. If it is total non performance then the organisers are surely going to have some narked off fans on their case because that poster looks pretty unequivocal.

I thought It's been kind of strange how this thread has been pretty dormant the second half of October, Thanks Boleskinner for posting that.

No worries. I'm sure Steve A Jones will be there, dressed in his Kill Bill Japanese school girl outfit, providing live feed on Periscope. Only joking, Steve. I'm just jealous that you're going?!

Looks to me like it could be a Black Crows with Jimmy redeux (same font) only with Def Lepard.

Achillies and the Wanton Song would be awsome, but would probably wind up being Rock and Roll Black Dog.

Or a Jimmy/Jeff duo and a Def Lepard opening act.

Or a big jam.

I hope he plays and blows some snowflakes away.
