Face HOF Nominee

Chicago Sun Times: Correction: That would be Lez Zeppelin at Bonnaroo, not Led Zeppelin:

Several media outlets — including the Associated Press, Britain’s NME and the Sun-Times — reported early this morning some very exciting news: that Led Zeppelin was finally booked for a stateside gig at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.

Problem is — it’s not happening.

The actual band booked for the festival — and trumpeted atop yesterday’s lineup press release — is Lez Zeppelin. That would be the all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band.

Rumors had been circulating for months that Led Zeppelin would make its stateside landfall at the Bonnaroo festival.
