Robert Plant Rips Up $800 Million Led Zeppelin Reunion Contract
If you had your heart set on catching one of the 35 planned Led Zeppelin reunion concerts ... you are not going to be happy. The Reunion is dead in the water due to Robert Plant.
According to the UK's Mirror Virgin Atlantic's Richard Branson offered the group $800 million to play a 35 date tour. Remaining band mates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones signed the contract and were on board. Jason Bonham (late drummer John Bonham's son) was also on board. They had all tried to talk lead singer Robert Plant into the reunion. At the last minute Plant tore up the contract in front of Branson and tour promoters. Branson was left in shock and fans around the world were disappointed. The article does not list the reason Plant said no at the last minute.
