  1. Will Zeppelin tour again, or is it just a trial balloon? Word is spreading that the rock group might play Bonnaroo. Promoter says they're set to play a tribute concert in London, but that might open a door. By Geoff Boucher, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer December 10, 2007 Will Led Zeppelin play Bonnaroo, the huge rock festival staged each June in Manchester, Tenn.? That's the big rumor in the music industry leading up to the classic-rock demi-gods' performance Monday at a tribute concert in London and lead singer Robert Plant's recent comments advocating a full-scale reunion tour (which Rolling Stone has already dubbed "the biggest tour ever" on its cover). Bonnaroo, which hosted a high-profile stop on the Police reunion tour this year, would seem like an ideal spot (and Zep bassist John Paul Jones even played there already as part of this year's bill) but we hear that Zeppelin will not be flying high at the jam-inclined festival. "It's just a rumor, none of that is real," says Randy Phillips, chief executive of AEG Live, the concert promotion company that runs O2, the London arena where Zep will be playing in a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, one of the most celebrated figures in the music industry as the co-founder of Atlantic Records. AEG is pushing hard for the Zeppelin tour; Phillips said today he was headed from Los Angeles to England to "meet with Bill Curbishly, the band's manager, and hand him a huge offer." Plant has a tour on tap with Alison Krauss to promote their new duet album, "Raising Sand." The Zeppelin tour would have Plant, guitar hero Jimmy Page, Jones and drummer Jason Bonham (behind the kit in place of his late father, rock icon John Bonham), and, by all appearances, it seems to be girding up with the same positive inertia that recently carried the Police back on the road and the Eagles back into the studio. "The reality is Zeppelin has not agreed to a tour," Phillips said. "They want to play this show and see how it goes, how it feels, and then go from there. There's nothing firm yet, but maybe afterward." Zeppelin is the bestselling heavy-metal act ever, with nearly 110 million albums shipped, according to the Recording Industry Assn. of America. The group hasn't toured since 1980 (the year Bonham died), and their last full concert dates in the U.S. were in 1977. (The surviving members did perform a short set at the industry banquet for their 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.) How much appetite is there for a Zeppelin reunion? Industry sources compare the likely box office to the recent record-setting road-runs by the Rolling Stones or U2, but it may be even more: Organizers of the online ticket lottery for the Ertegun tribute said 20 million requests came in for a show with 16,000 seats.
  2. I'm so glad you took the time to share this. What a great story. I enjoyed reading it. II was my first introduction to Led Zeppelin, as well, and I'll never forget the moment the needle met the groove. Cheers!
  3. Wow, thanks for sharing, Minx. RS: But that image has been frozen in time. When you play again on December 10th, there will be an expectation — for you to rise up to that. Robert: I've heard it in that [rehearsal] room. I've heard those guys playing. They've done it. It's already there.
  4. Wasn't it Great? Was it me or did I hear Robert tell someone in the audience to shut up?

  11. Led Zeppelin Brokers ESPN, NFL Promotional Pacts Led Zeppelin is now in the midst of a major promotional deal involving both ESPN and the National Football League (NFL), according to information confirmed by Digital Music News. The short-term partnership started splashing this week, and continues until mid-month. Sports fans have already seen Zeppelin songs and video footage threaded throughout various programming from both groups, including live, highlight, and preview segments. According to Mike Engstrom, vice president of Marketing at Rhino Entertainment, part of the Warner Music Group, the "unprecedented deal" taps into the energy of a simply unrivaled group. "Zeppelin is the greatest rock band in the world, and they've always done things their own way," Engstrom said in an interview Wednesday. Now, that energy is being shared with a heavily male demographic that spans numerous age brackets. ESPN and the NFL are complementary, and that makes the three-way structure a smart stab. Just recently, Zeppelin was promoted within a nail-biting Monday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens, aired on ESPN. The game was the most-watched program in the history of cable television, according to information shared by the network. The Zeppelin campaign is designed to raise awareness for the recently-released Mothership, a double-disc greatest hits package. A premium version of that release includes DVD footage, and the group is also re-releasing The Song Remains the Same, a concert film from 1973. The move follows a string of digital licensing moves by Zeppelin, as well as the announcement of reunion concert in London. Zeppelin is signed to Atlantic / Swan Song, also part of the Warner Music Group.

  14. Voilà! Oh, how I love this picture of father and son. What an amazing adventure they must have had together.
  15. Reggie, great find and thank you for sharing it with us.
  16. Aura is the band name of Robert's youngest son, Jesse.
  17. This seems to conflict with The VF Band Log. http://www.lelands.com/bid.aspx?lot=274&auctionid=212 Lot 274. Led Zeppelin December 29, 1968 Ticket With Envelope This is Zep’s fourth ever U.S. concert at Portland, Oregon’s Civic auditorium. Their name is not listed, but nonetheless, a true wonder in its omission of a then future legendary band. NRMT. Reserve: $400 http://en.allexperts.com/q/Led-Zeppelin-50...Portland-68.htm Mike Caldwell reports: "Be careful on this, the Portland show was actually December 29th, not the 31st as previously reported. Actually they opened for Vanilla Fudge and Spirit this night and at Gonzaga, December 30th." http://en.allexperts.com/q/Led-Zeppelin-50...oncert-1968.htm He also report that "Plant was sick during those days, probably why he wasn't out after the show."
  18. Concerts West promoted the Gonzaga Spokane, WA concert on 12/30/68. Perhaps you can contact them regarding the 12/29 and 12/31 gigs. Concerts West is now a part of AEG. http://www.aegworldwide.com/08_corporate/contact_us.html
