More rumor control: Led Zeppelin at Bonnaroo?

Posted on

It was the email read around the world last week, when industry pundit Bob Lefsetz announced, via an anonymous tip, that Led Zeppelin would make a U.S. appearance on the stage at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, held each June in Manchester Tennessee. This would follow the band’s much anticipated gig in London next week (December 10), when they’ll reunite to pay tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegun, the legendary executive who first signed the band to Atlantic Records in 1968. But the band’s official U.S. rep tells Hollywood Insider, “There is no truth to that story.” And another Zep source says, “nothing has been decided beyond the London show,” and that Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones (with Jason Bonham on drums) are, in essence, going to feel out the performance and go from there. If any Insider readers are headed to the UK for the show, please let us know what you thought.
