Realizing that Led Zeppelin are so determined to hit the road without him, Robert Plant eventually changes his mind and agrees to reunite with the band for their roadshow.
Robert Plant has finally decided to be involved in the Led Zeppelin's reunion plan. "When Robert realized the band were serious about doing it without him, it made him think long and hard," a source says. "He realised he couldn't face the thought of not being involved."
Speaking of Robert's decision, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Jason Bonham are said to be thrilled. "The band were over the moon when he told them the news," the source adds in a further explanation. "They are now forging ahead with the tour plans and can't wait to get on the road."
Previously, Robert was reportedly reluctant to be back with the band again after they faced huge amounts of paperwork from the record industry bureaucracy during their one-off gig at London's O2 arena. The band's other members then rehearsed with a stand-in singer and were confident that they could hit the road next year even without Robert.
