Robert Plant & Alison Krauss Play Led Zeppelin on Current World Tour !

News of a Led Zeppelin Reunion might be shaky but it seems you are in luck if you have tickets to see Robert Plant and Alision Krauss. They are currently on their Raising Sand Tour, have completed a few shows in the US and now head off to Europe before returning to the States in late Summer (with T-Bone Burnett).

It seems the pair are playing a series of led Zep numbers on this tour

Robert Plant:

"We're doing 'Black Dog.' I think we're doing some more obscure ones too. We're doing a couple of B-sides. We're doing 'The Battle of Evermore,' which is just mind-blowing. And that's something that Led Zeppelin never did live. So it's a great chance to do it now with Alison singing the Sandy Denny part. And of course she just kills it."

Both will also appear at the seventh Austin City Limits Music Festival, September 26th, 27th and 28th, Austin, Texas.

They also recently won "Wide Open Country Video of the Year" at the Country Music Television Awards recently for the song "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)."
