    No amount of money can get Robert Plant to reunite with his Led Zeppelin bandmates. The 66-year-old singer walked away from a 35-date tour that would have paid the rock group nearly $800 million — ripping up the contract in front of stunned promoters, the Mirror newspaper reported Sunday.

    LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Once upon a time, the iconic lead singer of Led Zeppelin and the golden girl of bluegrass would never have been mentioned in the same sentence. But since they won five Grammy awards -- including album of the year for their surprising collaboration, "Raising Sand" -- their names have been inextricably linked: RobertPlantandAlisonKrauss. If they were 20 years old and ran in Hollywood circles, tabloids might be calling them Robekrauss or Aliplant. Plant, however, is 60 -- in fantastic shape, and with a full head of the golden ringlets that...

    Led Zeppelin have given a clear hint that they are thinking about staging a full-scale tour after their reunion gig next month. Speaking to Guitar World magazine in the States, guitarist Jimmy Page suggested the one-off show may lead to something bigger. "It's a bit silly not to because there is such massive demand," he said. Until now, the band had said they were only planning to do the one show at the O2 Dome, in honour of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. But following what Page described as the "overwhelming" reaction to the show, clearly they are re-thinking things....

    Led Zeppelin Flying High with New Concert DiscsWed May 28, 2003 By Dean GoodmanLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In the words of one of their songs, Dancing Days are here again for fans of Led Zeppelin. Defunct for almost 23 years, the pioneering English band behind such hard rock classics as "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir (news - web sites)" has cleaned out its vaults to issue eight hours of previously unreleased live material on DVD and CD. The "Led Zeppelin DVD" contains footage from four tours spanning 1970 to 1979; the CD "How The West Was Won" combines two Los...

    LEGENDARY rockers Led Zeppelin are set to re-group after 22 years for a money-spinning stadium tour of America. The three surviving members — singer Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones — plan to hit the road next summer. The trio hope to pocket £6.4 million [US$9,964,160] for the shows. Robert, 54, Jimmy, 58, and 56-year-old John Paul met two weeks ago at the offices of their management firm Trinifold. They buried the hatchet over Page and Plant’s 1990s tour, which John Paul only learned about from a newspaper. A band insider said last night: “If the...
