Report: 70,000-Capacity Stadium In Wales Desperate To Attract LED ZEPPELIN

icWales.co.uk reports that the bosses of Millennium Stadium in Cardiff — the national stadium of Wales, used primarily for rugby union and football home internationals — are desperate to lure reformed rockers LED ZEPPELIN to the venue if they announce a tour next year.

The band received rave reviews for their performance last week at London’s O2 Arena — the first time they had played together in 19 years.

It has led to speculation and rumors they could be set to take to the road on a money-spinning world tour.

And now WRU Chief Executive Roger Lewis — a personal friend of the group's bassist John Paul Jones — is intent on making sure they make Wales will be a stop-off on any tour.

He told Wales on Sunday: "We would love to welcome LED ZEPPELIN and we have already put out a request to Harvey Goldsmith [the band's promoter].

"We have a good relationship with Harvey who also handles BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, who is coming to the stadium. Initially Harvey said they were only going to do a one-off gig, but now they are considering a tour.

"The thing is, we are the only stadium in Britain with a retractable roof and we can guarantee a perfect event for 70,000 people.

"There's nowhere else in the country that can do that."
