Robert Plant and Jimmy Page are in talks to reunite as Led Zeppelin for the bands upcoming 50th anniversary.

Plant has refused to return to the stage with Page and the bands bassist John Paul Jones for over a decade partly because it is thought that Plant does not enjoy being on stage without the late John Bonham.

However now the remaining three stars are allegedly considering a ­celebration of their work although Metro.co.uk understand that there wont be a reunion gig.

Bonham is likely to be ­represented by his son Jason, who joined the band in 2007 for their last performance as a group.

One idea that has been floated would see the three remaining members of the band attending a ­celebration of their work, which would include famous artists covering their hit tunes.

They might then appear on stage individually with some of the star names, report The Sun.

The anniversary in October would also coincide with the release of their new 368-page photo book, Led ­Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin, which was confirmed in late 2017 for a late 2018 release.

On 10 December 2007, Zeppelin reunited for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert at the O2 Arena.

According to Guinness World Records 2009, the show set a record for the Highest Demand for Tickets for One Music Concert as 20 million requests were submitted online.
