The singer hinted at the possibility of a reunion next year in an interview with Australia's "60 Minutes," as Rolling Stone reports. Recently, guitarist Jimmy Page said that a reunion tour never happened because Plant "was busy," and now the frontman is leaving the door wide open for more shows.
"[Jimmy and bassist John Paul Jones] are Capricorns. They don't say a word. They're quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me. I'm not the bad guy," Plant said in the interview. "You need to see the Capricorns -- I've got nothing to do in 2014."
The one-off reunion show took place in December 2007 at London's O2 arena and the recording of it was released in multiple formats in 2012. At the time, Page and Jones -- who also performed with late drummer John Bonham's son at the concert -- were up for a tour but it never materialized. They explored replacing plant with Steven Tyler or Myles Kennedy but ultimately abandoned the idea.
Plant, for his part, has been making folkier music, first with Alison Krauss and then with his Band of Joy. In 2011, he said he was so focused on his new sound that he "almost can't relate" to Zeppelin anymore. Whether or not this change of heart leads to something or just came about from frustration of years of answering the question, we'll just have to wait and see.
