Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of the formation of Led Zeppelin and fans hoping the group will commemorate the momentous occasion are in luck.

In an interview with the Academy of Achievement (see below), the band's guitarist Jimmy Page stated, “There’ll be Led Zeppelin product coming out, for sure, that people haven’t heard,” before adding that, "next year will be the 50th year, so there’s all manner of surprises coming out.”

The group that also included singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones and late drummer John Bonham has released sporadic new material since their 1980 break-up, including a complete remastering of the band’s nine studio albums. They've also reunited for a handful of performances, including at Live Aid in 1985 and the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in 2007, but it is not yet known what they have planned to celebrate their half century anniversary.
