Jimmy Page Will Tour in 2016

Jimmy Page has confirmed that he plans on touring in 2016.

The Led Zeppelin guitarist told Guitar World magazine "There will be all sorts of material from different eras. Right across the board; that’s the way I’m seeing it. But like I said, there will be surprises. It won’t be entirely what people might be expecting."

Touring, and recording for that matter, have not been part of Page's activities for over a decade. While he did perform at the Beijing Olympics in 2008 along with other one-off appearances, he has not done a proper tour since going out with Robert Plant in 1998.

A solo album, which is also expected, is an even more distant event. His last was solo effort was 1988's Outsider while he has since released Coverdale-Page with David Coverdale (1993) and Walking Into Clarksdale with Robert Plant (1998).

According to the Guitar World article, he is currently assembling a band for the tour.
