LED ZEPPELIN Management: No Reunion Tour Planned

LED ZEPPELIN have denied newspaper reports that they are to reunite for a tour in 2003.

The group were set for a US tour with Jason Bonham substituting for his late father John Bonham on drums, said the Sunday Times.

The newspaper reported that Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones had patched up their differences at meetings of Plant and Page's management company, Trinifold.

But Trinifold partner Robert Rosenberg told BBC News Online the reports were "completely speculative."

"We don't know where these stories are coming from - certainly not from our office," said Mr. Rosenberg.

"At this point there is no tour, nor any plans for one, and no discussions have taken place about a tour."

Speculation about a LED ZEPPELIN reunion has been rife for years, and promoters have offered substantial sums to get the group to reform.

Guitarist Page and singer Plant have already toured together, but the band has not worked as an ensemble since the death of John Bonham in 1980, after a drinking binge.

And a spokeswoman for Robert Plant's agents MBC also dismissed the current rumors as "speculation".

The band's enduring popularity has been boosted by recent reissues of their classic albums and the work of a host of tribute bands.
