Zpoke too soon...

My day of optimism yesterday for a reunion is crushed just 24 hours later... Despite reports that Robert Plant had finally signed on to team up with Led Zeppelin for a reunion tour, the singer has posted on his official website, robertplant.com that he has no road plans after his current tour with Alison Krauss, which wraps on Sunday October 5th in Saratoga, Florida.

The message reads in part: "Robert has no intention whatsoever of touring with anyone for at least the next two years. Contrary to a spate of recent reports, Robert Plant will not be touring or recording with Led Zeppelin. Anyone buying tickets online to any such event will be buying bogus tickets."

Plant himself was quoted as saying, "It's both frustrating and ridiculous for this story to continue to rear its head when all the musicians that surround the story are keen to get on with their individual projects and move forward. I wish Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham nothing but success with any future projects."

Page, Jones, Bonham, have been rehearsing with a series of other vocalists, which reportedly include Myles R. Kennedy from Alter Bridge. There has been no official announcement as to whether the band is planning to tour or record together without Plant's involvement.
Oasis has announced the details of a new North American tour that will begin on December 3rd in Oakland, California and wrap up on December 20th in Washington D.C. The trek will mark the band's return to these shores since a run of dates was cut short earlier this month after guitarist Noel Gallagher was assaulted onstage (had his ass handed to him) by a concertgoer in Toronto. The group was forced to scrap the last few gigs of that jaunt, as well as several European shows, while Gallagher recovered from hip and rib injuries sustained in the incident.

Oasis will release its seventh studio album, titled Dig Out Your Soul, on October 7th. For a limited time, every Oasis ticket order made through Ticketmaster will include an option to upgrade to a special package containing the concert ticket, a copy of Dig Out Your Soul and an exclusive Oasis T-shirt.

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday October 3rd at 10:00 a.m for their December 17 - New York, NY - Madison Square Garden
