As long as there have been long-gone rock titans to obsess over, there have been people intent on drumming up re-formation rumours that usually never come to fruition. Led Zeppelin are certainly no strangers to this – there have been whispers of their imminent return flying around for years – but for the first time in a long while, it’s actually looking like it might happen. The hubbub has been triggered by one sole phrase posted on ex-Zep vocalist Robert Plant’s official website; “Any time now…”
OK, so that could mean anything. It could mean the imminent announcement of a new Plant solo album; it could mean a solo tour; or – as most people are hoping – it could mean the rock powerhouse that is Led Zeppelin is soon to be back in action. Only time will tell but, in the meantime, you get your modern day Zep fix via the ‘Celebration Day’ film that came out in 2012, a document of the last time the band reformed to play London’s O2 Arena in 2007. Though perhaps not quite as vital as they were in ’70s, the show still saw the band on impressive form, so any further shows promise to be quite the occasion.
