On contrary to media reports saying that Led Zeppelin will perform at Bonnaroo, it has now been confirmed that NYC band Lez Zeppelin will play, not the actual British band.
Mind the one alphabet difference, Led Zeppelin will not headline Bonnaroo Festival this year but Lez Zeppelin will. The latter is an all-female band from New York City that perform the work of Led Zeppelin in tribute to the British band.
The mistake that was reported heavily on several media earlier this week was prompted by the rumors that had been circulating at the first place that Led Zeppelin will perform their reunion gig Stateside at the festival that is held June 12-15 in Manchester, Tennessee.
With the confirmation that Led Zeppelin is not going to be in the festival, the spotlight is now shone on Robert Plant, Metallica and Pearl Jam. Tickets will go on sale on February 16 and full lineup can be found on Bonnaroo.com.
Meanwhile, Led Zeppelin's fans still consider it unfair for the band to only conduct a reunion tour in U.K. in December last year. YouChoose.net has hosted a petition for Led Zeppelin to start mapping a world tour plan and reports said that the band's concert promoter have been "excited over the interest" after contacted by the organizers of the petition. More than 8,000 people have signed up by the news hour.
