John Paul Jones's manager discredits promoted tour date

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

John Paul Jones' manager has told me that a U.S. festival concert planned for later this year should not currently include Jones on the bill.

Current promotion says Jones is scheduled to appear Aug. 17 at the Lakefest on the shore of Lake Michigan. He is to play at 6:15 p.m. between an opening set by John Sebastian and a headlining appearance by Jethro Tull, the festival's Web site states.

However, Richard Chadwick of Opium (Arts) Ltd. informed me that the festival's information is inaccurate. "I don't know where it came from or how they got hold of it," he told me.

As of press time, Lakefest promoters have not yet responded to my inquiries.

Jones' manager has not announced any upcoming tour dates.
