5 Reasons To Get Excited by Jimmy Page Live Comeback

Jimmy Page, one of our favourite guitar heroes (of course!) has recently announced he’s planning to return to the stages later this year, and is "warming up on the touchlines" ahead of those gigs, as he says he needs to get "match fit" first.

Here’s 5 reasons why we should be very, very excited by Jimmy Page’s live return



1) You’ll be able to see the guitar legend, live!

Jimmy Page is, as we all know, one of the three legendary guitar heroes (alongside Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck) who redefined the instrument in the sixties and went on to influence generations to this day. But, unlike Clapton and Beck, Page doesn’t play live as often, so this is a rare opportunity not to be missed! After all, he’s not getting any younger, so his live appearances will become even more scarcer in the future…

2) He’ll play Led Zeppelin songs



Well, of course he will! Even if Robert Plant probably won’t be singing them, no doubt it’ll be awesome! Jimmy Page playing "Whole Lotta Love" or "Black Dog" live could be one of the highlights of the year for anyone who cares about guitar! After all, Page still "got it"!

3) He’ll even play older, Yardbirds-era songs

Page said he would "play material that spanned everything from my recording career right back to my very, very early days with The Yardbirds" so that means you could be in the first audience since 1968 to hear Page playing something like proto-Led Zep song "Think About It", live!



4) He’ll play new, unheard of material

Jimmy Page is more than a great guitar hero. He’s also a great producer and creative composer, who introduced names such as Bert Jansch and Davy Graham to a wider audience, experimented with Moog and ARP synthesizers, and whose recording techniques have inspired and fascinated many, as our old Jimmy Page recording secrets article shows. So it’ll be great to see what he’s up to at the moment, and hear his new music!


5) He’ll showcase some new talents


Page has revealed he’s putting a band together, which may include names we’re not familiar with. Does it mean he’ll be playing with old session musician pros, or maybe fresh new blood to give it an edge? Looks like it won’t be anything like his last new band, The Firm, in the Eighties…

And, who knows! Maybe Robert Plant will get excited by Page’s comeback, too, and, who knows what could happen next!
