Robert Plant says Led Zeppelin will never play live again

Robert Plant says Led Zeppelin will never play live again.

The singer revealed the news while promoting the forthcoming expanded reissues of the band’s first three albums this June.

Plant tells the BBC that the chances of the group performing live again are “zero.”

A reunited Led Zeppelin – with drummer Jason Bonham sitting in for his late father, John – last performed when they headlined a December 10, 2007 concert at London’s O2 Arena as a tribute concert for friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. The event was eventually released in 2012 as “Celebraton Day.”

Guitarist Jimmy Page responded to the BBC’s question about future live shows by saying, “I'm sure people would love to hear it. I'm not the one to be asking, I don't sing.”

Due June 2 (June 3 in North America), the group are releasing expanded reissues of “Led Zeppelin I”, “Led Zeppelin II” and “Led Zeppelin III.”

Deluxe editions of the group’s first three albums are the first projects announced as part of an extensive reissue program that will see all nine of the band’s studio albums reissued in chronological order, each remastered by Page.

The reissues will be available in a variety of formats – learn more details here.
