LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The surviving members of the legendary Led Zeppelin are reportedly planning to reunite for a one-off memorial concert in honor of their late record boss, Atlantic founder Ahmet Ertegun, and may follow the performance with a tour.
Dotmusic reports that Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones will team up with their late drummer’s son, Jason Bonham, for a special concert in London in Ertegun’s memory.
A source familiar with the talks told the news source: “Page, Plant and Jones spoke and agreed to do the memorial concert. They are waiting for a definite date.
“And no-one can quite believe it, but during discussions about the concert they all gave the green light to a tour if it all does well and they don’t all fall out.
“It has been hoped-for and denied for years. But this is the closest they have ever come to a reunion tour. The feeling is that this is going to happen next year.”
The classic rockers have only performed a handful of concerts together, including Live Aid in 1985, since their split in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
