Has anyone already posted on this? Seems they're up for it (again), with help from Bonham junior. I'd love to go, but to what degree will it be a sad parody of the band's legendary, near mythical former glory?
If it's to be anything like the Plant/Page collaboration more than a decade ago, then I'm all for it. That was truly an inspired and creative reworking of the classics. If, on the other hand, they do a quick "greatest hits" set, a la Metallica at Live Earth, then I think they should still do it (hey, it's a chance to see 3/4 of the greatest classic rock band ever, after all!) but I'll watch it with a tear of nostalgia, rather than the thrill I got when listening to them doing Kashmir with a Moroccan string section.
Perception is truth, ergo opinion is fact.

Emdiar, in 1979 I witnessed the In Through The Outdoor tour in Ahoy in Rotterdam, I was deaf for two days but a dream had come true Approve I have always had the idea that Led Zep would reform with John Bonham junior but I hope Jimmy Page will more do his best to practise the Led Zep tracklist than in the past when he made a mess out of Stairway To Heaven Dead ...

I've heard about this many times...
I would only take it seriously if Page or Plant made the statment on national television.

I assume you either haven't heard The Mighty ReArranger or just don't like it, it's one of his finest vocal performances IMHO.

Uggghhh, after houses Led zeppelin died (though they crutched along from the beginining). I personally like Plants blues vox on the first album more than anything else, too bad for them...

if by "died" you mean continued to progress past their metallic blues and fairy tale folk, then yes, they did

I would go up to the end of the world to see this (I would need a big bank loan for that, but anyway) if it were to happen (I think I just made a mess out of the If Clause).

However, I would rather prefer some new material (aside the usual self-tributes), as there is no more Led Zeppelin. Mr. Page and Mr. Jones have been creatively silent for quite some time now, and I'm really curious what musical ideas they've been sleeping on in the last years.

I'd have loved to see them with Phil Collins in 85. I mean come on, 4 superstars on one stage!

I really hope they make this more than just a one-off gig and do a tour. I'd travel to Europe for that, probably Italy where my family comes from, I have my house there so there'd be no need to get a hotel.

I already knew about that possible reunion, and there are all sorts of rumors, some say they may reunite, some say they will reunite and some say they won't reunite.
I'd give everything to see Zep live actually, as I never had the chance and the Gods are possibly my favorite band, but I know without Bonzo it wouldn't be the same...

There were two major problems then - the instruments were not tuned when they were supposed to start playing, and there were two drummers on stage. If there was only Phil Collins it could have been a good performance, but it seems that the other guy was totally out of place there, spoiling everything for the others.
BTW, Phil Collins did a great job on Plant's first solo albums.
