Led Zeppelin turns down tour deal

March 4, 2008

LONDON (UPI) -- The British rock band Led Zeppelin reportedly has turned down a tour deal worth hundreds of millions of dollars because singer Robert Plant wasn't interested.

Rumors about a world concert tour have swirled since the surviving members of the band reunited late last year for a triumphant one-night gig at London's O2 Arena.

The Sunday Mirror newspaper said Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were offered nearly $200 million each to tour but decided to pass up the opportunity.

"Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money. They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt," a band source told the Mirror. "Jimmy had enjoyed the concert in December enough to want to tour. He argued they still had something to offer. He likes the idea of another chapter in the band -- the grown-up tour. John sided with Jimmy. He loved making music with the others again.

"But Robert wanted to leave last year's concert as their legacy. They had proved they could still do it and that was enough. He has other commitments and is happier looking forward to those. Robert put the mockers on the tour," the source told The Sunday Mirror.
