Not so fast with those Led Zep playing the Roo in 2008.? According to Billbaord, the Bonnaroo promoters have gone on the record stating that those rumors are inaccurate.
“The rumors that are out there about the Bonnaroo 2008 headliners are inaccurate,” Superfly Presents and A.C. Entertainment said in a statement released to 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.
Now it could be that the Metallica portion of the rumor is the falsehood, but something tells me their appearance fee to play at Bonnaroo would be significantly less than say, Led Zeppelin. ? Considering that Metallica probably needs this appearance more than Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and JPJ and I’d wager that unless they’ve got a rabbit in their hat or some simple twist of fate, it’s probably Led Zeppelin who won’t be appearing.? This of course, is merely conjecture on my part, however.
