The band received rave reviews for their performance last week at London’s O2 Arena – the first time they had played together in 19 years. It has led to speculation and rumours they could be set to take to the road on a money-spinning world tour. And now WRU Chief Executive Roger Lewis – a personal friend of the group’s bassist John Paul Jones – is intent on making sure they make Wales will be a stop-off on any tour. He told Wales on Sunday: “We would love to welcome Led Zeppelin and we have already put out a request to Harvey Goldsmith [the band’s promoter]. “We have a good relationship with Harvey who also handles Bruce Springsteen, who is coming to the stadium. Initially Harvey said they were only going to do a one-off gig, but now they are considering a tour. “The thing is, we are the only stadium in Britain with a retractable roof and we can guarantee a perfect event for 70,000 people. “There’s nowhere else in the country that can do that.” Tickets for the 02 gig were made available via a lottery system, costing £125. The website exceeded its bandwidth allowance and crashed almost immediately following the announcement, with Mr Goldsmith predicting that the gig would cause the “largest demand for one show in history” . The ticket request site receiving one billion page impressions and one million people registered for fewer than 20,000 available tickets. A Millennium Stadium gig would be a guaranteed instant sell-out. The band’s guitarist, Jimmy Page, has recently suggested the band may start work on new material.
