Time to get the Led out again
« on: September 08, 2007, 05:34:52 PM »
A Led Zeppelin reunion tour is in the works, so the rumour goes:

Zeppelin Reunion "Virtually Certain"

Yay!

It's official. Grunge is dead. Long live rock 'n' roll!

Well, I wouldn't say it's dead... but it's about to get itself a wedgie from a couple of rock geezers.  If you can't die before you get old, hang around long enough to prove that kids these days listen to horrible music and then proceed to rock their faces off.

If this doesn't include John Paul Jones, I will absolutely not see it.  Without JPJ, it's just Page and Plant Waiting for Clarsdale again.  Count me out!

From what I heard, the living parts of the band will be present.  There are rumours John Bonham's son may play drums, but no confirmations yet of the lineup, let alone if there will actually be a tour.  But hey, it's better than nothing.

Anyone care to speculate how many $$$ it will take to buy a ticket, if any even go on sale to the humble masses.
On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

Usually tours of this magnitude (think Pink Floyd's Pulse tour) sell for $80-$100. However, since this is likely to sell out no matter how big the arena, scalpers are bound to buy as many as possible. I saw U2 in concert in 2005, and my ticket with a face value of $50 cost me $170. Now, obviously Zeppelin go on tour with less frequency than U2, so the price gouging is bound to be much higher (simple supply/demand stuff). Given all this, I expect you'd have yourself a bargain if you got a ticket for less than $350.

It's starting to sound like it may not be a full fledged tour, but a one time get together in London for £125 (if you make the list... apparently you have to "apply" for randomly drawn tickets).  Here's the update.
