Will Led Zeppelin Reunite at Desert Trip Festival?
According to a cryptic message left on Robert Plant’s website, it might happen “Any time now…”
Those three words, posted on the frontman’s website earlier this week, have sparked another round of Zeppelin reunion rumors. Only this time they might actually be grounded in some reality.
Last year it was rumored that the Robert Plant turned down a whopping $14 million to reunite for the inaugural Desert Trip festival (also referred to lovingly as “Oldchella”). But with the band’s 50th anniversary coming up, could he be having a change of heart for the fest’s 2017 edition?
According to Raul of FeelNumb.com: “Sources tell me he has finally agreed to do it because of the impending 50 year anniversary of Led Zeppelin.” Raul goes on to say, “I’ve proved spot on several times before, including when I revealed the Guns N’ Roses reunion line-up weeks before anyone else did. Hopefully this one proves to be true again!!!“
Let’s hope this Raul’s sources are legit and this isn’t just another form of “alternative facts” sweeping the Internet. If the reunion is happening at this year’s Desert Trip we’ll find out very soon, as last year’s lineup was revealed in the first week of May.
The last time the original members of Led Zeppelin (save for the late John Bonham) performed together was in 2007 at the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert. (Catch a performance of “Kashmir” from that show below.)
