It appears that fans won’t have a chance to see rock icon Led Zeppelin on stage again. According to guitarist Jimmy Page, it seems “really unlikely” for the band to tour in the future.

Led Zeppelin’s last live gig was in 2007 at The O2 arena in London, with Page, vocalist Robert Plant, and bassist John Paul Jones getting together and playing a 16-song setlist. Son of the late John Bonham, Jason Bonham, replaced him as the drummer.

At the time, it was reported that the group will embark on a tour, and Page confirmed this in a recent interview with BBC Radio 2. According to the guitarist, they considered doing more shows but “it didn’t come off.”

When asked whether Led Zeppelin might get to it at some point in the future, Page gave a disappointing answer.

“It seems really unlikely that there would be a tour in the future,” he said. “Unlike The Rolling Stones, they do sort of know that the fans love that—also I know that with Led Zeppelin [fans too]. But it doesn’t look as though there’s anything in the future, unfortunately.”

Despite not playing together, Led Zeppelin members recently got together in 2018 to commemorate the band’s 50th anniversary. As part of the celebration, the group released an illustrated book and reissued a triple live album How the West Was Won on vinyl.
