MANCHESTER, Tenn., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Media outlets around the world erroneously reported the British rock band Led Zeppelin would reunite at the Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival in Tennessee.

However, the band booked to perform at the festival in Manchester, Tenn., this June is actually Lez Zeppelin, an all-female Led Zeppelin cover band, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday.

The surviving members of Led Zeppelin, which disbanded in 1980, reunited late last year for a triumphant one-night-only gig at London's O2 Arena.

Since then, rumors have been rampant that the rock band was planning a worldwide reunion tour.

Should there be such a tour, it apparently won't include a June stop in Manchester, Tenn.

Also named on the star-studded Bonnaroo roster are Metallica, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, Kanye West, Willie Nelson, B.B. King, Sigur Ros and the Raconteurs, the Daily Telegraph said.
