Jimmy Page on Led Zeppelin Playing Glastonbury: ‘You Never Know’
Jimmy Page confirms that he hasn’t spoken to anyone about headlining the Glastonbury Festival — despite organizer Michael Eavis’ saying he was certain the band would headline the event in the future. At the same time, though, the Led Zeppelin guitarist isn’t ruling out such an appearance.
“I haven’t heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig,” Page tells BBC Radio 6 Music, “but you never know, do you? You never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?”
Led Zeppelin last reformed in December 2007 at London’s O2 Arena, a concert later commemorated in the CD/DVD package ‘Celebration Day.’ The group is reissuing its first three albums Tuesday (June 3) on CD, vinyl and digitally, with a new mastering and personally curated unreleased tracks courtesy of Page himself.
Page’s words come a few weeks after revealing that he is “fed up” with Robert Plant‘s “games” over the question of whether or not Led Zeppelin will perform again. “I was told last year that Robert Plant said he is doing nothing in 2014,” he said. “And what do the other two guys think? Well, he knows what the other guys think. Everyone would love to play more concerts for the band.”
The lineup for this year’s Glastonbury Festival includes Blondie, the Black Keys, Dolly Parton, and Arcade Fire. But the biggest surprise of all from the upcoming weekend was when Metallica were tapped to become the first metal band to headline the prestigious festival. Glastonbury will be held June 25-29 at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset.
