Robert Plant has reportedly turned down more than $800 million to reunite with Led Zeppelin on a worldwide tour.
According to The Mirror, the lead singer ripped up a contract to reunite the surviving members of the band for just 35 shows in three cities: Berlin, London and an unspecified location in New Jersey.
Virgin CEO Richard Branson is said to be behind the whole deal, and allegedly was ready to offer up one of his company's planes and specially dub it "The Starship" just for the band.
The contact had an extension option to add 45 more shows in additional venues if the band members signed on the dotted line, however, it looks like seeing Zeppelin in concert won't be a reality any time soon.

Sometimes rock dinosuars are better left on past glory. All those wrinkles and failing voices.
(anyone who thinks the Celebration Day performances are great has either never watched the How the West Was Won video or is seriously deficient in musical discrimination).
Neither are Jimmy and Robert likely to write any great new songs.
John Bonham is dead. It's over.
I thought the Celebration Day performance was great but then I'm not stuck in the past.
New material isn't necessary when you have a back catalogue like theirs.
there are plenty of people who just want to see the band before its too late.
the DNA lives on.
Or perhaps you just don't miss the freshness, the energy, the joyful abandon, the euphoric rush that great musicians can generate at the top of their game.
So it's going to be a nostalgia show
Who cares about them? I care about Led Zeppelin, and a little thing called artistic integrity.
Half of it does. Basic genetics. Jason Bonham is exactly half the drummer his father was.
artistic integrity would be to give the people that have supported them over the years what they want.
Jason Bonham is 100% the drummer his father was.
