So about that supposed Led Zeppelin reunion—it ain't happening … yet. Not while frontman Robert Plant is busy planning a worldwide tour with Alison Krauss in support of the duo's Raising Sand LP. Beginning with a brief leg of dates down south, the trek then jumps to Europe for 11 stops before returning to North America for a more extensive run during June and July. Producer T-Bone Burnett will lead the pair's band through selections from Raising Sand and their respective back catalogues.
