Promoters withdraw John Paul Jones appearance

This news originally appeared at the Web site for the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

The only U.S. concert date to which John Paul Jones has been linked so far this year was retracted this week without any explanation provided.

The Web page for the Lakefest in Sheboygan, Wis., has removed its reference to Jones performing at the festival on Aug. 17 at 6:15 p.m.

This unheralded change occurred within a day after Lemon Squeezings expressed concern that the information originally at that Web page was inaccurate, given an e-mail received from Jones' manager.

Richard Chadwick of Opium (Arts) Ltd. informed Lemon Squeezings on the morning of April 29 that the Lakefest Web site was wrong to write that Jones would perform on that date. "I don't know where it came from or how they got hold of it," he wrote in an e-mail.

Lakefest promoters have still not responded directly to a Lemon Squeezings inquiry.

No future concert dates for Jones have yet been announced, although the multi-instrumentalist and singer is expected to tour this year in support of his second solo album, The Thunderthief. The CD was released on the Discipline Global Mobile label.
