Jimmy Page plans live shows
JImmy Page wants to put together a band to tour a career-spanning show next year
Jimmy Page is planning a career-spanning live show.
The former Led Zeppelin guitarist wants to put together a new band and would showcase his earliest songs with The Yardbirds right through to some new material and is looking forward to having an "adventure" with the gigs.
He said: "If I was to play again it would be with musicians that would be... some of the names might be new to you. I haven't put them together yet but I'm going to do that next year. If I went out to play, I would play material that spanned everything from my recording career right back to my very, very early days with The Yardbirds. There would certainly be some new material in there as well.
"I love playing live, I really do. Live concerts are always an interesting challenge because it means you can always change things as you're playing every night. You can make it even more of an adventure. I would play all of the things I'm known to play - instrumental versions of 'Dazed And Confused' etcetera, etcetera..."
And the 70-year-old rocker admitted it is "unlikely" Led Zeppelin - whose surviving members reunited for a one-off London show in 2007 - will ever get back together again.
He said: "I don't think it looks as though that's a possibility or on the cards, so there's not much more I can say about that.
"I'm not going to give a detail-by-detail account of what one person says or another person says. All I can say is it doesn't look likely, does it?"
