Led Zeppelin Tour Doubtful

A source close to Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has said the band will not play a long-rumored reunion tour. According to the Sunday Mirror, an offer of 100 million pounds was turned down partially because of Plant's other commitments including an upcoming Raising Sand tour with Alison Krauss.
"Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money," the source said. "They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt. Jimmy [Page] 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 [Paul Jones] sided with Jimmy. He loved making music with the others again. But Robert [Plant] wanted to leave last year's concert as their legacy. They had proved they could still do it and that was enough."
