Led Zeppelin reunion rumours triggered by cryptic Robert Plant message

Led Zeppelin reunion rumours triggered by cryptic Robert Plant message

A cryptic message on vocalist Robert Plant's website has fans wondering whether a reunion is coming sooner, rather than later. On top of that, it's pretty well known that he's been recording with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters.

The related gossip that places a prospective Led Zeppelin reunion gig at the upcoming Desert Trip festival seems to come from Feel Numb's recent post that cites "well placed sources in the industry" speaking of the possibility.

The group last performed in 2007 at London's The O2 with Jason Bonham sitting in for his deceased dad, John ("Bonzo").

In 2014, when asked about Led Zeppelin's future, he famously told Rolling Stone, "You're going back to the same old s***. I'm not part of a jukebox!" According to NME, ticket requests for that concert reached 20 million. The performance was captured on the 2012 "Celebration Day" DVD release. Now, the sweeping conjecture is that Zeppelin may be seriously considering a reunion performance for the 2017 fest.

The irony about Plant's comments is he apparently has no problem playing Led Zeppelin tunes with anyone else aside from his old bandmates.

The 68-year-old rocker's site has been turned black with just the words "Any time now." in the centre of the page, leading fans of the "Whole Lotta Love" group to guess they are about to announce they are to reform at some point this year.
