madison Posted May 30, 2008 Author Share Posted May 30, 2008 ?...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.
