It seems as if the poor lads from Led Zeppelin will have no peace until they form up once again to share their legendary sound from the live stage. Now they are being asked to take part in a series of shows at various locations on planet Earth for charity.
World Peace One, a non-profit world peace organization has asked Led Zeppelin to perform at a series of concert events around the world. The group has reportedly asked Irish rockers U2 and self-adopted Brit Madonna to join the fun as well.
According to the World Peace One website, their vision is stated to be “ending war and establishing lasting peace for the entire human race.” That would sound pretty good to any sane human being and would have to get my vote as human kind’s most impressive accomplishment, considering the insatiable desire our species seems to have to exterminate one another.
By the way, the group hopes to bring peace to the planet within 10 years — a lofty goal to say the least.
The World Peace One concert series is set to kick off on May 17 in Istanbul, Turkey and then travel on to such places as London, Johannesburg and Miami, the United Arab Emirates, Portugal, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Colombia, India with additional dates a possibility.
As almost everyone knows by know, Robert Plant appears to be the man holding the cards with regard to any further Zeppelin shows and he has stated that he’s a bit tied up until September due to his commitment to tour with Alison Krauss.
At this point it appears that the chances of Led Zeppelin embarking on a world tour as part of the World Peace One effort are quite slim. Anything is possible, I suppose, but I’d be quite surprised to hear that Led Zeppelin will be involved.
