Led Zeppelin reunion: Everything still turns to gold

It’s been a long time since they rock and rolled. Almost 30 years, to be exact, since they last did a full set together. Read the full post.

    I hope they tour, just to help people put into perspective how lame and juvenile most bands are today (I’m looking at you Fallout Boy). Who cares about ticket prices, I’ll just watch the tour DVD in the comfort of my own home.

    Since iTunes collapsed the space/time continuum of modern music, fans of all ages recognize that LED ZEPPELIN f***ing ROCKS! Get ahold of a copy of “Song Remains” and you’ll see. Saw them in ’76, would LOVE to take my Page-worshipping son to new shows.

    Money may not be the motivation, but they probaly wouldn’t turn it down either. They can donate it all to charity as far as I’m concerned. Whether or not they think that they haven’t gotten their due from the press or cemented their place in rock history, all they have to do is look at how many *millions* of fans were clammoring for tickets to that show and how many more are begging for a tour. That right there shows them how beloved they are.

    3.2 million for a major tour (not just 3 or 4 cities), is this a misprint? This seems like a lot of money to you? If I’m not mistaken, other major tours by big name headliners pull in tens of millions of dollars. 3.2 million, even if it is net, that is divided between Page and Plant, with a bone or two thrown to John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, hardly seems like the trouble and aggravation for “older” men who must certainly be mega-millionaires on catalog sales alone. Now, if they want to soak up the adulation again on stage, I can understand it. But brace yourself, for 3.2 million? I doubt it.

    Charles, it is 3.2 Million a NIGHT! Not overall! At least that’s the number being bandied about…..

  • Charles

    Thanks Joe C. You’re right, I skipped the “A Night” line. OK, 3.2 per concert is pretty amazing by any standards. And I would love to see them also…

    Well clearly there are not too many people interested in the Zep or this message board would have seen a lot more activity. Me, I wouldn’t pay a penny to see those old farts.

  • T.L.

    I would pay a LOT to see Zep play. They’re my all-time favorite band. However, paradoxically, there is also a part of me that has always enjoyed the sense of mystique about them. I’m 38, and never saw them live; I’ve only heard the legend. I fear seeing them live — no matter how awesome it may be — would make me lose some of the wonder I’ve enjoyed my whole life. Does that make any sense?

  • J

    Totally makes sense to me. On the one hand, I’d love to be able to go see them (even though I’ll only be able to afford a nosebleed seat), on the other, I feel kind of ambivalent about the whole thing. Maybe it’s their mystique, maybe I’m just tired of arena rock shows. And believe me–I LOVE Zeppelin. But I dunno. It’s kind of just like….whatever.

    You young kids should step back and let us poor old bast—s, get some tickets out of respect.

    COME TO CHICAGO!!!
    i truly wish i was there.

  • Nancy Walker

    The Zep is awesome! If I could afford to buy plane tickets and a front-row seat I would be there in a heartbeat. It is nice to see Robert Plant and Jimmy Paige on stage. And I like that he has (Robert) his long locks still.
    I don’t think the money is too much when one has it to spend.

  • Harrison

    Who will Led Zeppelin have as an opening act on their 2008 US tour???
    The rumors have finally been silenced: Plant has personally tapped his illegitimate son’s band–MEAN VENUS–to open all 2008 shows.
    MEAN VENUS’ lead singer, J, when recently interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, spoke of his utter disbelief at the prospect:
    “I only found out he [Plant] was my dad a few years ago.
    My mum hid it from me for the majority of my life. So to actually be going on the road with my Dad is bloody outrageous!”…..
