Cryptic Post By Robert Plant Stirs Led Zeppelin Reunion Rumors

Former Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant has sparked frenzied rumours of a rare reunion for the group, after he posted a brief, cryptic message on his official website this week.

"Sources tell me he has finally agreed to do it because of the impending 50 year anniversary of Led Zeppelin".

I have some well placed sources in the industry telling me that Robert Plant has agreed to reunite Led Zeppelin for Desert Trip 2017.

Fans of the band have now speculated that Led Zeppelin could reform again on the back of a message that currently sits on Plant's official website which reads: "Any time now..."

Second, the inaugural Desert Trip, which took place in October 2016, was initially officially announced on May 3, 2016 - nearly exactly one year ago today, implying that details for this year's version of the mega-fest could be forthcoming. The site also says that the band turned down $14 million for last year's festival and that they have "millions and millions" more reasons to play this year.

Led Zeppelin last performed together in 2007 for a one-off show in London. At that time, it was rumored that Page, Plant, bassist John Paul Jones, and drummer Jason Bonham were working on new music, but that ultimately fell through... so maybe this time around? That performance was later released as Celebration Day, a bit of which you can check out below.
