Continuing to jerk fans around with the tease of a possible reunion tour/one-off performance at yr local Krispy Kreme following their December reunion gig in London, Led Zeppelin have occasioned another story where the hopeful headline is dashed (or at least brought down to Earth) within the first three paragraphs. This time around Reuters
got the “scoop” from Jimmy Page in Tokyo, hinting at… well, we’re not sure actually. A second gig? A tour? Something in time for the beginning of the ’08/’09 school year. Maybe. But at least they have a reason for the delay: obsessive perfectionism, the hallmark of all great rock and roll.
“I can assure you the amount of work that we put into the O2 (concert), for ourselves rehearsing and the staging of it, was probably what you put into a world tour,” Page said.
But, “Robert Plant also had a parallel project running and he’s really busy with that project, certainly until September, so I can’t give you any news.”
Before adding: “But don’t let this stop you from padding this four line non-update into a several-hundred-word ‘story’ that’s once again mostly a recap of our career plus a buncha quotes about how awesome the O2 reunion concert was for everyone involved. ‘Cuz no one’s sick of that yet.”
