The article says that on March 21, 2013 at 8:15 PM, Led Zeppelin will be awarded the Echo Lifetime Achievement Award International. Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will be able to attend, but Robert Plant will not due to a previous concert arrangement in Singapore.

From wikipedia: "Echo (stylised as ECHO) is a German music award granted every year by the Deutsche Phono-Akademie (an association of recording companies). Each year's winner is determined by the previous year's sales. The Echo Deutscher Musikpreis is the successor to the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis (German Record Awards)"

I also noticed that the German website of Rolling Stone magazine has posted a short note about this: http://www.rollingst...ach-berlin.html

Nice, and we'll get the next clue in all of this reunion madness. "Jimmy and John, what do you make of Robert calling both of you out and saying he's free in 2014?" :yesnod:

and they should answer they have plans to tour together and Robert is welcome to join them.
