Led Zeppelin Reunion Falls Apart When Frontman Robert Plant Tears Up Contract Worth HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS?!?!

We always hear rumors that so-and-so is a diva or so-and-so is impossible to work with.

Well we guess the rumors about Led Zeppelin's frontman Robert Plant might have a grain of truth to them!

The aging rock-god apparently tore up an $800 MILLION contract for a reunion tour!

Apparently, billionaire Richard Branson loves the band and did everything in his power to make a reunion tour happen.

That insane figure of $800,000,000 was supposed to get the band to play only 35 shows in London, Berlin and New Jersey, but it just wasn't gonna happen.

Even though guitar-god Jimmy Page and fellow founding member John Paul Jones immediately signed on for the tour, it was the 66-year-old Plant who ripped a contract to shreds in front of concert promoters.

A source said:

"It was a no-brainer for them, but Robert asked for 48 hours to think about it. They have tried to talk him ’round, but there is no chance. His mind is made up and that's that. There is no way they can go ahead without him."

We're sure tons of Zeppelin fans were super disappointed but we bet Branson was most upset.

He was ready to rename one of his jumbo jets "The Starship" to give to the band as their tour plane and even wanted to call the plane's staircase the Stairway to Heaven, named for their most famous song.

We guess not even billionaires get everything they want.

Way to ruin everyone's good time, Robert Plant! Just do it for the fans if not for the massive amount of money!!

    Re: flapdoodle – Correct. Even so, if he did not tear the contract up, he isn't gonna do Led Zep again. He has made it abundantly clear he is not interested in reliving his past for months on end (cause you know 35 dates will turn into 50 and so forth). Over the years he has said this. Sure he gave in for the 2009 show, and then pissed everyone off when indeed that is all he intended to do! The other guys were sure a big tour would follow and Robert said nothing to dissuade them, but once the 02 show was done he was off to parts unknown. Plus he only did the 02 because it was a benefit for the foundation step in Atlantic Records founders name.

    Really. Why would he want to do a tour?? He has so many other projects he is working on and enjoying. The other guys? Not so much.

    35 shows wouldn't take that long to do. Plant likes new things, so write new Zep music and perform it with the classics that the crowds would expect some of. With the genius tunes that came out of Zep the first go round, they could create a whole new batch to keep Plant happy creatively not to mention the others, and boost their fortunes. To imagine Zep as somehow limiting creatively is mind boggling. It could be nirvana.

    Robert probably feels that Led Zeppelin's performed enough and that their best moments were In the 70s. He's not like the Rolling Stones who still like to perform every few years and still sell out shows. He's on some other music now and would rather focus on that. This is just like these money hungry concert promoters and record company people in the late 1980s that wanted rock bands and artists like Bon Jovi, Motley Crue and Pat Benatar to perform year after year
