Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page Plans 2013 Solo Tour

Jimmy Page has announced that he is planning a solo tour for next year. Page has also dismissed rumors that Led Zeppelin is prepared to replace frontman Robert Plant in order to do so, because the band felt that it would have "changed the character" of the band.

"This time last year I intended to be actually playing by now in a live outfit. So that will have to be postponed now into sort of next year, tail end of next year," Page told Guitar World magazine. "But I definitely want to be doing that."

"There was talk about bringing in some other singers, but that would have changed the character of what we were doing, and done it rather suddenly," he added regarding the Plant rumors.
