ROBERT PLANT Says No To LED ZEPPELIN Tour And 100M

Source: Brave Words

According to Sean Hamilton from the Sundaymirror.co.uk,

Robert Plant has turned down an extra 100million fortune to take LED ZEPPELIN on a world tour. The rock legend wants to concentrate on his new partnership with US country singer ALISON KRAUSS... spelling the likely end of the famous band.
Led Zep fans had been longing for a tour announcement since last year - when the 1970s superstars reformed for a one-off show at London's O2 Arena.

Surviving members Plant, Robert Page and John Paul Jones were offered a guaranteed 100m each for a tour of North America and Europe after a million fans applied for O2 tickets.
But after extensive talks Led Zep - best known for the song 'Stairway To Heaven'- decided against the moneymaking opportunity.

Guitarist Jimmy Page, 64, was keen to do the tour this year and was backed by bass player John Paul, 62.

But singer Plant, 59 - already worth an estimated 70million - wants to concentrate on his new success with US country singer Krauss. The pair's duet album Raising Sand went to No 2 in America and Britain and they are starting their own tour in April.

A band source said: "Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money. They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt."




A guaranteed 100m each!!!!

Maybe the promoters could offer Krauss $25 million to cancel her tour and free up Plant's schedule.

£100m = $200 million dollars.
Not bad.

The Allison Krauss/Robert Plant stuff is actually really cool in my opinion. I sort of respect Zeppelin for turning this down, myself. It's too easy.

More like self-important bullshit. Robert Plant is too afraid of faggot Rolling Stone critics shitting on him, yet he doesn't mind doing a version of Black Dog for fucking Starbucks.

Seriously. Led Zep is my favoirte band but fuck Robert Plant. There are so many younger fans (including myself) who appreciate their music who would give anything to see them play. At least Maiden and Rush and a few other classic bands are still around for the younger generation of fans. BTW the Krauss record sucked balls, neither of them even wrote the music.
