Organizers of Britain’s Glastonbury Festival, the largest open-air music and performing arts festival in the world, have let it be known that their preferred headliner for the 2019 fest is Led Zeppelin. Event organizer Emily Davis says she has always dreamed of having the band at the festival, “and this year the chances of that happening are considerable.”
Add to that that the band has a few projects in the works to celebrate there 50th anniversary, that U.K. bookmakers Betway have put the odds of Zeppelin headlining Glastonbury next year at 2/1 and that the rock press have begun to pick up the story and you’ve got all it takes to fire up reunion rumors.
Keep in mind that it doesn’t sound like Robert Plant has changed his mind about not reuniting telling the Daily Telegraph last October: “You can’t ever really go back. It’s tough enough repeating yourself with something that’s a year old, never mind 49 years old. I’ve got to keep moving.”
But that won’t stop fans from wishing a reunion would materialize.
