In news that’s both shocking and still somewhat appropriate, vocalist/ female badass Bjork has been officially named Led Zeppelin’s new vocalist. The group has been searching for a new singer after Robert Plant made a statement saying despite their reunion show last year, he will not be with the group for their tours. Short statement from Bjork’s camp:
BjÃ¶rk has accepted the position of lead vocalist for legendary Led Zeppelin, but it was evident that their world tour was in turmoil after original singer Robert Plant decided to concentrate on live work with Allison Krauss. They have been looking for new singer to tour and record with as reported in the media.
BjÃ¶rk has though put forward her wish that they only cover with her songs from album I and IV, among them pure classics like:
“Good Times Bad Times”, “You Shook Me”, “Dazed and Confused”, “Your Time Is Gonna Come”, “Black Mountain Side”, “Communication Breakdown”, “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, “Black Dog” , “Rock and Roll”, “The Battle of Evermore” and “Stairway to Heaven”.
The tour kicks off in June after BjÃ¶rk has fulfilled her other engagements.
If I were you, I would greatly encourage you to grab your tickets HERE, as they’re sure to sell out, especially only being about $20 a piece before all those stupid Live Nation fees.
