Bonaroo Festival organizers were quick to tackle the rumor that Led Zeppelin and Metallica are due to headline their 2008 event. The promoters did not exactly denying the truth but find the published report from Bob Lefsetz's newsletter "inaccurate".

"The rumors that are out there about the Bonnaroo 2008 headliners are inaccurate," Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment told Billboard.com. "We're very excited about the lineup that we're putting together for this year's festival. We'll be announcing the confirmed lineup toward the end of January/beginning of February."

Zeppelin will on December 10 play their reunion gig at London's O2 in tribute to late Atlantic Records founder, Ahmet Etergun. Details meanwhile, have emerged with guitarist Jimmy Page revealing that they will play a full two hour set, not more or less.

"When we were first asked to do this (reunion gig), we were asked to play a 40-minute set. We soon realised we couldn't," Page told Q magazine. "If we go out and play 'No Quarter', 'Moby Dick' and 'Dazed And Confused' with all the solos, you're already talking over an hour. We've gone from 75 minutes to 90, to the best part of two hours."
