LED ZEPPELIN - Jimmy Page Says Reunion Tour Never Happened Because Robert Plant "Was Busy"
November 21, 2012, 4 years ago
According to Rolling Stone, LED ZEPPELIN fans weren't alone in thinking the group's 2007 triumphant reunion concert at London's O2 Arena would lead to a tour. "Some of us thought we would be continuing, that there were going to be more concerts in the not-too-distant-future," Jimmy Page tells Rolling Stone Senior Writer David Fricke in the new issue, on stands Friday. "Because there was a lot of work being put into the show."
Ultimately, Robert Plant had no interest in carrying on. "He was busy," says Page. "He was doing his ALISON KRAUSS project. I wasn't fully aware it was going to be launched at the same time. So what do you do in a situation like that? I'd been working with the other two guys for the percentage of the rehearsals at the O2. We were connecting well. The weakness was that none of us sang."
