Robert Plant has said no to an offer of 100 million pounds — about $200 million U.S. — for Led Zeppelin to tour, saying he prefers to leave the band’s November reunion in London as the final word on its legacy, according to England’s Sunday Mirror.

Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin The paper quotes sources close to the band saying that while guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones were supportive of a hotly anticipated Zeppelin reunion tour on the heels of last fall’s performance, Plant would rather focus on, among other non-Zeppelin interests, his recent collaboration with Alison Krauss, “Raising Sand,” for which the two will be on tour starting April 19 in Louisville, Ky.

The tour stops in L.A. at the Greek Theatre on June 23 and 24 and at the Santa Barbara Bowl on June 25.

According to the report, Plant has nixed any additional performances by Led Zeppelin. “Despite the enormous offer, the decision did not come down to money,” the Sunday Mirror quoted an anonymous source. “They always said they would do the one-off show and then see how they felt…. [Plant] has other commitments and is happier looking forward to those.”
