Goldsmith: No Led Zeppelin without Plant

Goldsmith: No Led Zeppelin without Plant

Led Zeppelin should not go on tour using their original name without singer Robert Plant, promoter Harvey Goldsmith said today.

Plant announced last month that he would not tour for at least two years, and his other bandmates are auditioning for a new frontman to perform in future live shows.

Mr Goldsmith, who has promoted the band in the past, including their one-off show at the O2 Arena last year, said that even if Plant agreed to go on tour, it would not be the right move for the band.

He said: “If they’re going out with another singer it’s not exactly Led Zeppelin, and if it is, then them doing a long tour, I’m not sure what the point is because they don’t need to do it.

“I think they should do something as Led Zeppelin but I think doing a long tour around the world, like the Rolling Stones did, I don’t know that would work.

“They’re one of the few lucky bands that don’t need to tour. They need to do something new and innovative that would turn them on.

“As far as I’m aware there’s no Led Zeppelin tour. Whatever the rest of the band want to do with other musicians is up to them.”
