Here’s a hint. They’re too freaking old. Plant’s voice cannot hold up to the test of time.
I saw Zep six times in the 70’s and it was an awesome experience.
While I would hate to see Plant go the way of Rod Stewart (Atlantic City, 4pm so the seniors can see him and he can get to bed by 7) I wouldn’t mind seeing plant to contemporary stuff.
As for Page, he did a couple of soundtracks that were decent. To me, he will always be the mystical, drug addled guitarist who played better acoustic than electric.(IMHO)

He can pull it off vocally. But visually it is too ridiculous for a 65 year old man with a gray goatee and grayish hair to be jumping around like the 40 year old Robert Plant. Mick Jagger has looked ridiculous for 20 years.
If they could do let say 15 shows(5 in NY, 5 in Chi. and 5 in LA) spread out over two months that could go a long way to do the final farewell.People would pay whatever the cost of ticket,traveling, etc. At least I and a few of my friends would.
Could not be much worse than the WHO during the super bowl
it gets silly to be Led Zeppelin after a while....plant can’t do his part anymore and without Jones...they aren’t even Led Zeppelin.....or you could even argue that without Bonham they aren’t Led Zeppelin.....
The music still holds up, though.
I was listening to Led Zeppelin a few months ago and it was obvious to me that Plant was trying to sound like Janis Joplin at one point on Zep 3.
