It's been a long time since LED ZEPPELIN did the stroll in front of a Toronto audience, but a return by the grand British band of blues rock could happen, possibly at Rogers Centre.

Rumours of a Zeppelin reunion have floated freely since the band's ballyhooed one-off performance at London's O2 Arena last December. Current speculation, however, has foundation. "It's my understanding that some preliminary discussions are going on," said Nadia Flaim, the stadium's communications manager .

Earlier this week, a MuchMusic blogger reported that a "reliable source" had provided details. "No fancy tour of the U.S.," the online dispatch reads, "but Toronto will have four dates at Skydome/Rogers Centre this coming August."

According to Ms. Flaim, August concerts are unlikely, due to Blue Jays and Argonauts games already in place. "Just based on the time needed for conversion purposes, it would be a very tight squeeze."

Since the London concert, the group - which broke up in 1980, and last played here in 1971 - have done little to quell rumours. "You never know what is around the corner," guitarist Jimmy Page said early this year. More recently, singer ROBERT PLANT, who is touring with bluegrass singer ALISON KRAUSS this summer, spoke of "unfinished business."
