LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The U.K.’s Daily Telegraph is reporting that legendary rock band Led Zeppelin are planning to play a huge comeback concert at the O2 Arena, following talks with AEG, owners of the former Millennium Dome in Greenwich, south east London.
Rumors have run rampant in recent months, as members of the supergroup that disbanded 27 years ago hinted at playing a memorial concert together for the late Island Records head Ahmet Ertegun. It appears that the band has chosen the venue, and surviving members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones will be joined with late drummer John Bonham’s son Jason.
A source told the paper: “The talks are ongoing but it looks like a definite possibility. Nothing has been finalised but fingers crossed the most anticipated comeback concerts ever could become a reality.”
The band’s only other reunions were a lackluster performance at Live Aid in 1985, with Genesis drummer Phil Collins, and their 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The concert is expected to coincide with the release of a great hits collection in November.
Promoter have already begun warning fans to not jump on pre-announcement tickets or promotions, as nothing has been confirmed. Premier Entertainments company is getting a head start, however, offering hotel and ticket packages for £269, insisting the official announcement was about to be made.
Neither the venue or representatives for the band would comment. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
