Sorry Led Zepplin fans, Jimmy Page just squashed all hope of a future Zeppelin tour.

In a new interview with music magazine Planet Rock, the guitarist admits that he does not expect any more live shows from the legendary rock band. “You've just got to face facts. We've gone past the tenth anniversary of the O2 [show], where we managed to do one serious concert,” he said. “That's the only thing that we've done for such a long time, so I very much doubt we'll do anything else. I really think the time has gone.”

But, Page promises that there are some new “products” in the works. “I can't give the game away, but there's a recording that’s another multi-track that we'll release,” he revealed. “It's so different to all the other things that are out there. It's another view compared to How The West Was Won or The Song Remains The Same. I'm looking forward to people hearing that. There's a lot of stuff to come out, a number of releases. I'd like to say that they'll be coming out over the next 10 years. There's more to come for sure.”

In addition to the music releases, there will be a new Led Zeppelin book due out this fall. He says: “I’m really pleased that we're all doing it collectively because there are so many other people doing books. There's about ten that I know of that are coming, which is pretty ridiculous! It will be really good to have an authoritative book, where the band are actually contributing to it rather than being ripped off.”
