So the unlikely can happen with any great group if we wait long enough. (Read between the lines.)
This is big news, at least in the U.S. Were they huge in the UK, I imagine?
I think this is exciting news. What a great way to pay tribute to an icon (Ahmet Ertegun, Atlantic Records).
And not just a short set, but a full set is what I've read. And all this despite a rift within the group. Hm!

I hope they don't play 'Stairway' as an encore.

Off topic, but the other big news is the new Eagles album due out soon...(I duck for cover!) :)

I'd like to go, but there's no way that I am.
You're gonna kill me, is that your plan?

Most "one off reunion"s end up with a full reunion tour. The classic "we didn't intend to, but when we were on stage the magic was back suddenly...". I've seen it with Bauhaus as well, who also first intended on only one gig and ended up doing a long reunion tour.

We have hopes yes. But on the other hand, perhaps Morrissey is too stubborn (unlike the Led Zeppelin guys) to ever stand on a stage with Mike Joyce again. If there will ever be a Smiths reunion I think it'd only be Moz and Marr and without the remaining part of the original line-up. Well, maybe Andy could be there as well, but I don't see Moz and Mike on the same stage again in their lifetimes.

i saw Page and Plant on tour a few years back. i was far more impressed with Page than Plant--voices go quicker than instrumental talent. but, all things aside, it was a great show, they played plenty of songs i know by heart; which i'm sure they'll do on their new tour.
