Robert Plant has has once again shot down the possibility of a LED ZEPPELIN reunion, explaining that “you can’t ever really go back.”
LED ZEPPELIN hasn’t performed together in almost a decade, having last played London’s O2 Arena in December 2007.
The concert was part of the Ahmet Ertegun tribute event, which was chronicled on the band’s 2012 “Celebration Day” CD and DVD. The set, which featured Jason Bonham subbing for his late father John Bonham on drums, marked Plant, Jimmy Page and Paul Jones‘s first full-scale concert together since John Bonham‘s 1980 death.
In a brand new interview with the Daily Telegraph, the singer was asked about the chances of LED ZEPPELIN regrouping for more live shows.
Plant has arguably been the lone holdout for another LED ZEPPELIN reunion. Despite promoter-led attempts to get the band to reform for a series of concerts, Plant remains committed to his new musical direction in the roots and blues-based “Americana” field.
