Will you go and see them?
I'm not sure.
Listening to Led Zep is good. There's no two ways about it.
So, listening to Led Zep live will be good. Not as good, but good.
I would probably buy a ticket or tickets, decide not to go and then make hundreds of pounds.
Led Zeppelin don't do much for me and standing in a crowd of thousands of people believing they are at the best gig EVER even if it is average would piss me off.
you'd buy tickets purely to tout them. How good of you.
if they play anywhere other than wembley in this country i'd be surprised.
they will basically play the biggest venue they can and charge the highest amount they can...
I love the Zep but it will be a big corporate style gig in some sanitised arena. I would have wanted to see them when they were at their height, in a field full of smelly hairy people, smoking a fat one.
King Tuts, Fibbers and the Charlotte!
I want in.
but I'd still rather they didn't tour in the first place
I thought the heartbreak / woman-loving content thing covered quite a vast range of listeners.
so ur gay?
AC/DC when they tour. I prefer the Bon Scott stuff, but they can still kick it live.
but if the tickets are extortionate, which they will be, I won't. So no, really.
But knowing the tickets will be either too expensive in the first instace, even more expensive from touts on ebay and even if i get there will probably be full of corporate ticket holders who aren't even Led Zeo fans anyway i dont know if i will bother.
On the hand, my Dad wants to go so i could just get hom to buy me a ticket!
a fiver like metallica was.
they just remind me of when i was fourteen to sixteen. I can't really enjot them anymore.
But fuck it man, it's Zeppelin!
Even if they're shit you can go well "I saw Zeppelin, and they were shit". Though I doubt they would be. They'd saly the shit out of everything
plant released a statment today saying it was all rubbish, good old sun newspaper eh
They are well past their sell by date, had they decided to do this a decade ago perhaps. Its just a way to finance this years tax bill and for them to fulfil some ego fuelled fantasy before they are literally incapable of even standing up. A great band very much in the past tense of the word. Remember them through their albums not some zimmer aided gig in the O2.
yeah it's not like 1973!
Let's face it, you can't say you've seen Zeppelin if Bonzo isn't drumming. I don't even care if it'd be Grohl on drums!! (much)
that is dated TODAY it aint happening folks!
but thanks for enriching my ignorant mind!
there's a large number of people who won't rest up until they get their Led Zep tour - see the criticism that came Plant's way when he dared to tour with Alison Krauss just because they'd made a successful album together - when it's not going to add anything to anyone's sum knowledge. On the same lines, David Gilmour's still having to fend off questions about the possibility of Pink Floyd properly reuniting.
if you give me a shotgun and three bullets.
and I have no plans and its not sold out on the night I would probibly head down.
and I have never gone to that so I probibly wouldn't bother with the real thing either.
unless tickets were prohibitively expensive.
Which, unfortunately, would be a very high price, as I'd be willing to pay quite a lot to see em - it's Led Zep, Page and Plant still sound very good despite their years and I'd really want to catch them before they toddled.
the only abstainer being Robert Plant; the rest of the band have put an offer down, if he doesn't take it they've got another singer lined up for the tour.
There's an empty ultimatum if ever I heard one. Led Zeppelin without John Bonham is one thing. Without Robert Plant, who would go and see them?
who went to see the Doors with Ian Astbury I'd imagine
not Jim's lyrics, so i can see why some folks would.
Just to contradict myself, it wouldn't be the same without Jim, I wouldn't see em, but I can see why folks would.
Personally I think it's about the 'whole'. Wouldn't want to see Led Zep ot the Doors without any of the main players. Or when they're old. I want to see bands in their prime.
if it comes to pay x to see y, it's that or nothing really.
I think other good drummers could replicate Bonham's sounds adequately enough to warrant seeing Led Zep, whereas A different singer would sound so different it would have a more noticeable affect, for me anyways. And then there's the stage presence of Morrison. Queen are in a similar position I guess - some folks wouldn't even consider seeing them without Mercury, my little sister and her fella have seen them twice (and absolutely loved it) with him from Free.
I caught the beach boys at glastonbury in 2005 (?), had a brilliant time, but it was basically a very very good beach boys tribute band. I would have preferred it without Brian Wilson looking extremely vegetable like on stage front. Depends on the band I guess. Metallica aren't in their prime anymore, but I would have gone to see the £5 show if I'd BLOODY KNOWN ABOUT IT. Sonic Youth similarly. Roger Waters and Dark Side of the Moon however...eh, no ta.
whereas Led Zep and The Doors are playing the nostalgia card.
Yeah, you go and see Metallica for the old shit but having seen them so many times I wouldn't bother if they didn't have anything new to offer
or if they did a master of puppets 'Don't Look Back' style thing? i think queen *technically* have new material. Although it's less forwarded than metallica's new stuff.
I was just saying it depends on the specific band, but then i waffled for a few tomes.
and quite honestly, even though it's my favourite album ever, it was boring. I knew exactly what was going to happen for the next hour, note for note, just dull. I like the spontaneity of not knowing what's going to happen next.
I didn't go to Reading 'cos the rest of the Sunday bill was awful but went to the 02 as I was gagging to hear the new stuff live and it was fantastic.
I really like going to a gig knowing what's going to come, makes a nice change to most gigs.I chatted with Steve (cyberdemon) recently, and he was disappointed that when they played a few of the justice songs at the O2 without doing full solos on a some songs. Again, I think it's situation specific. Just look at the most common criticism of the Mars Volta.
I'd also give my arse teeth to see Orion live.
I'd go and see Jimmy Page, but without the extortionate Led Zep price
my stock "Never, I'd rather go and see ten up and coming bands who are still hungry for it, AND have enough change for the tube fare and a prostitute on the way home" response ?
