The iconic British rock group formed way back in 1968
Jimmy Page has teased “all manner of surprises” coming next year to mark Led Zeppelin‘s 50th anniversary.
The iconic British rock group formed in 1968, before splitting in 1980. They have reunited four times since, with the latest coming in 2007.
In an interview for the Academy Of Achievement, Page said the surviving members of the group would be celebrating the milestone in 2018. “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard, because I’m working on that,” he said.
He added: “Next year will be the 50th year, so there’s all manner of surprises coming out.” Watch the interview below.
Meanwhile, Robert Plant recently revealed he can no longer listen to some Led Zeppelin songs. While the frontman is still known to play Led Zep’s extensive back catalogue during his solo shows, he says he can’t stand the sound of his vocals on certain songs.
“Songs like [Led Zeppelin I’s] ‘Babe I’m Going To Leave You’ …” he told The Guardian. “I find my vocals on there horrific now. I really should have shut the fuck up!”
The singer, who released his new album ‘Carry Fire’ earlier this year, recently ruled out a return to his old band. “You can’t ever really go back. It’s tough enough repeating yourself with something that’s a year old, never mind 49-years-old. I’ve got to keep moving,” he explained.

Lady Gaga has announced she will be taking up residency in Las Vegas for a series of shows spanning 74 dates, beginning in December 2018.
The singer was recently forced to postpone her UK and European tour in support of latest album ‘Joanne‘, only days after she cancelled a concert in Rio due to “severe physical pain”. The singer has been vocal about her battle with Fibromyalgia, a condition which causes chronic pain to spread across the whole body.
Gaga confirmed the rumoured residency on Twitter, writing: “The rumours are true! I will have my own residency at MGM’s Park Theater. Get ready for a brand new show! It’s been my lifelong dream to be a Las Vegas girl, I’m so overjoyed!”
In a statement, the singer added that she would “leave my heart on the stage every single night”.
Variety reports the run will begin with 74 dates, but could extend to more. Gaga is said to be earning more than $1 million (£750k) per show.
Other artists set to take the Park Theater stage in 2018 include Bruno Mars and Cher.
Back in October, Lady Gaga joined artists such as Moby and Ariana Grande in a call for increased gun control following the deadly shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people and injured over 500.
