Could Led Zeppelin Reunite for 50th Anniversary?

Another week passes and more chatter relating to a possible Led Zeppelin reunion makes it on to the web.

A few weeks ago Plant instigated the first wave of reunion rumours after changing the landing page of his website to a simple black page with the words "Any time now..." But that is thought to be a nod to the release of the new Sensational Space Shifters album, which Plant and co have been working on since the beginning of last year.

However, there's talk coming from a number of industry insiders that Plant has agreed to perform at this year's edition of Desert Trip after turning down the chance to headline the festival in 2016.

#Whilst it would seem fitting for the band to reunite for a fourth time in celebration of their 50th anniversary, we feel until there's an official announcement from either the Plant or the Zeppelin camp then these rumours shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Led Zeppein have reunited only a handful of times in the past. Once in 1985 for Live Aid and again in 1988 at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert. There most recent was ten years ago when they performed their only full length live show since the passing of drummer John Bonham as a tribute to Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun, who had passed away in 2006.
