  1. this is an "iffa" but i think Daughtry or Coldplay are both a good match. Just about 3 songs only tho
  2. ?...no disappointment here, hadn't even heard about the "Canada dates" until ths remour is "quashed}. No Led Zeppelin dates planned, says promoter 28/05/2008 - 10:25:12 AM Led Zeppelin's tour promoter has quashed fans' hopes of a comeback tour this summer, insisting new internet reports of a series of live dates in Canada are just false "rumours". Earlier this month, a news blog on Canadian music TV channel's Much Music website reported that the legendary rockers were due to play four shows at the Skydome/Rogers Centre stadium in Toronto this August. Led Zeppelin founders Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones reunited last year for a one-off tribute show to late music mogul Ahmet Ertegun in December. The trio has fuelled speculation of more dates with remarks made in a series of interviews since the December concert in London. However, Debra Rathwell, a spokeswoman for the band's gig promoters Anschutz Entertainment Group Live, has dismissed the reports as hearsay, insisting there is no such tour planned. "Alison Krauss and Robert Plant are touring together till at least the end of July, and Plant has made it perfectly clear that he doesn't want to tour with Led Zeppelin," she said. "Of course, stranger things have happened, but I can tell you that my office is not involved in any Led Zeppelin concerts in Toronto or anywhere else." Frontman Plant is currently promoting his duet album 'Raising Sands' with bluegrass star Alison Krauss with shows across the US and Europe.

  3. http://www.nme.com/news/various-artists/34616 hey anything to tie us over to a tour tho later this year. [i got a kick out of the comment by Danny 023 hehehe ]
  4. ditto your and tedvance posts! presale privilege I'm saving for this one hopefully to make a couple concerts stateside. that's exciting that you are planning a trip to England. very cool
  5. this is what this thread has become. laugh laugh a laugh my personal opinion (I'm not media) is they will tour people can post articles they see, hopes they may have, or true INSIDER info as some of you seem to have. Jason Bonham didn't even know about this board when asked if he knew he had been a topic of dicussion. freedom of thought and freedom of speech. now how many times do i have to say there will most likely be a tour in my personal opinion and I'm in titled to it without let's see...the pessimists can at the "unrealistlist" hopefuls. I'm just demonstrating what all the looks like...i'm not going to continue the overuse at laughing at what people are hoping/thinking. it's a form of antagonizing others not just speaking your piece. it's clear pessimists are realistic, tough and (and in my opinion a bit cliquey and arrogant) positive hopefuls are crying wha wha's in the pessimists viewpoint but in the positive hopeful viewpoint just HOPEFUL....that's not like we are crying our eyes out if it doesn't happen.
  6. From Ireland Online Jan. 30, 2008 "Plant hints at full Led Zeppelin tour 28/01/2008 - 2:14:48 PM Robert Plant has further fuelled speculation Led Zeppelin will launch a full reunion tour this year - by replying "you never know" when asked if the road show is going ahead." this isn't a definite no. from him it's on the positive side.
  7. Things are looking towards "yes". Yeh! Most of the articles coming out say wait until the Fall. With these positive sounding hints from band members (horses mouth).............. Wait till Fall : if we can wait 30 years .... FALL HEY, NO PROBLEM!!! can do!!! just start saving some extra $$$ now for airfares, hotels, ground transportation and of course the tickets...so as to attend more than one concert. i'd be happy to just get to one of course. I had mentioned in an earlier post i thought they'd do a tour in the Fall into '09. Just hope it all sticks together.
  8. i know this is more towards rumor, and a huge mistake saying John Bonham instead of Jason Bonham (which had to be a slip up being the guy is a heavy metal journalist...also....he's into "it's all about the money" thing which may be a motivator for many but not for LZ boys. his probably wishfully thinking like many of us. Prediction: the Led Zeppelin tour will happen, and it will happen in 2008. January 14, 2008 Nevermind the rumour mill with all its uncertainties. Pay no attention to Robert Plant’s tour with Alison Kraus and don’t worry that John Bonham told a reporter “not to get greedy”. As sure as the sun comes up tomorrow, Led Zeppelin will go on tour. It might not be a very extensive tour. They will probably limit it to a small handful of large population centres (who knows about a Canadian appearance), but it will happen. Led Zeppelin will set foot on this continent. We can take that for granted because in the music industry, anything that makes money tends to happen, and such a tour would make more money than Microsoft. No other tour, recent or upcoming, is even in the same ballpark. G’n’R, Metallica, Van Halen, Heaven and Hell, Ozzfest: all small potatoes. In the rock world, at least in terms of sheer bankability, Led Zeppelin has no peer. Only a reunited Pink Floyd (or the Beatles, which is most unlikely) would even be remotely comparable to the cash cow unleashed. We’ve seen a sample of it already. Last year, when the Zeps hit the O2 Arena in London, about a million people applied for 7000 tickets. Some fans paid up to £7,525 online. That’s $14 742 US ladies and gentlemen! And it leaves about 993 000 people who still want to see the show in the UK alone! You wanna bet there aren’t at least that many (willing to pay at least that much) on this side of the Atlantic? No manager’s going to pass up that market! Granted, part of the demand comes from perceived scarcity. That’s why they will probably keep the tour small. It adds to the mystique. Unlike the Rolling Stones or The Who, who’ve ground the live circuit into redundancy, Led Zeppelin have wisely stayed aloof, cultivating an almost supernatural aura with the help of the relentless classic rock radio hype machine. The time to do it is certainly now, while the demand is there and while they’re still healthy enough to do it. If they haven’t announced it already it’s because a) they’re still working out the details and they’re teasing us. Cultivating the appetite as it were. Tension does tend to heighten anticipation. And it does spread publicity, as media speculation does the advertising. When the bomb finally does drop (or the levee breaks) there will be a riot at every Ticketmaster location in the hemisphere.

  9. wow, i really got off topic on here sorry. i have no idea why i am strongly defending JM when the thread is all about Robert Plant. oops.
  10. oops i meant onLY (sp) one thumbs up my mouse got click happy...it's at least something to tie us over for awhile.
  11. i know you are being mean and sarcastic, but if you know how do so; do some research and you'll find it. {lyrics are anywhere under discgraphy or lyrics below are a few of his quotes. but just a suggestion....to save you some trouble & misery....and don't read about this if you dislike JM so much.. i don't think it's healthy to disrespect/dislike or whatever it is you are aiming at JM who has been gone so long but still copied, studied and yes still conjers up a lot of controversy! He always said he'd be remembered long after he was gone a bit of an ego but nothing worse that other stars' quotes. “I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps "Oh look at that!" Then- whoosh, and I'm gone...and they'll never see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me- ever.” (so far True!) “People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.” “The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on and individual level. It's got to happen inside first. You can take away a man's political freedom and you won't hurt him- unless you take away his freedom to feel. That can destroy him. That kind of freedom can't be granted. Nobody can win it for you.” "as i look back...over my life...i am struck by post cards...ruined snapshots...faded posters...of a time..i can't recall” - JIM MORRISON
  12. if RP feels that new material is needed before a tour...that's his personal choice and it sounds like a roadblock to a tour alright. think of all the bands that travel on their great material produced long ago some I know are bands people don't love but they have successful tours. Eagles (actually did way after the numerous reunion tours release something new) Police REO Speedwagon Styx I'm sure there are many others....people come to hear what they know anyway. if there were a new cd of all new material (LZ) the audiences would be screaming for the classics. if that's something RP doesn't like he'd probably not enjoy the tour and it wouldn't be fun for him at all anyway.
