Led Zeppelin Heads Bonnaroo Lineup
12 hours ago
NEW YORK (AP) — The reunited Led Zeppelin will headline the 2008 Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival, concert organizers announced Wednesday.
Led Zeppelin, who reconvened for a single December concert in London, had for months been rumored to be heading to Bonnaroo, which will be held Jun 13-15 on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn.
Confirmation of Led Zeppelin's Bonnaroo performance was sure to stoke further speculation on a possible reunion tour. Last week, guitarist Jimmy Page said he was eager to tour with singer Robert Plant and bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones. (Jason Bonham, son of late drummer John Bonham, has joined on drums.)
Plant will also perform at Bonnaroo with bluegrass star Alison Krauss, with whom he made the hit duet album, "Raising Sand." Led Zeppelin recently released "Mothership," a two-disc compilation.
Also scheduled to perform are Metallica, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, Kanye West, My Morning Jacket, Willie Nelson, B.B. King, Phil Lesh and Friends, Sigur Ros, the Raconteurs, Against Me! and Death Cab for Cutie.
A lineup of comedians performing in the festival's "Comedy Tent" will include Zach Galifianakis, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Jim Norton, Mike Birbiglia and Brian Posehn.
Tickets to the seventh annual festival go on sale Feb. 16. More acts will be announced later, with an expected total of over 100 bands.
Here is the deal.!! Ah, but a closer look at the press release reveals that it's Lez Zeppelin, the all-female Zep tribute band, not Led Zeppelin!! UH!!!!!!

Woo-hoo! "ZEPPELIN CONFIRMED," according to the press release announcing this year's Bonnaroo lineup. Makes sense that the long-rumored reunion tour might start at the June 12-15 music festival, especially since unlikely-but-terrific duet team Robert Plant and Alison Krauss (pictured) are already booked. Ah, but a closer look at the press release reveals that it's Lez Zeppelin, the all-female Zep tribute band, not Led Zeppelin, that's confirmed to perform in Manchester, Tenn. D'oh!
Still, looks like there's something to please everyone in this year's Bonnaroo lineup, from Kanye West to Pearl Jam, from Death Cab to Vampire Weekend, from Willie Nelson to B.B. King, from Metallica to Sigur Ros. There's also a comedy tent, with Janeane Garofalo, Zach Galifianakis, and a nightly talk show hosted by the much-easier-to-spell David Cross. Tix go on sale Saturday exclusively at the Bonnaroo website.
So, how many of you are going? Who are you most looking forward to seeing? Think that, as long as Plant's there, the real Led Zeppelin might show up anyway? Does anybody remember laughter?
