LED ZEPPELIN SET FOR 250 MILLION WORLD TOUR:
May 10, 2008
Supergroup Led Zeppelin are set to reform for a world tour after their triumphant one-off reunion concert.
The Whole Lotta Love legends, with more than 300 million album sales worldwide, are ready to rock ‘n roll again to mark their 40th anniversary this year.
And like the Rolling Stones, they could each make up to 10million pounds.
Fans have been calling for Led Zep to tour after their successful gig at London’s 02 Arena last December, which saw Jason Bonham on drums in place of late dad John.
Singer Robert Plant, 59, was originally opposed to the idea but has been talked round by bandmates Jimmy Page, 64, and John Paul Jones, 62.
A long-time pal, Whitesnake’s frontman David Coverdale, said yesterday the tour was “very likely” and he was expecting to be the support act.
David said: “I’m expecting a call from Jimmy any day asking my band Whitesnake to support them on their world tour. Am I on board? You bet. Probably worth billions!
“Unlike rolling out the wheelchairs with the umpteenth Rolling Stones world tour, a Led Zeppelin tour will be incredible.”
A source added: “A couple of months ago, it looked unlikely because Robert was against the idea.
“But now it looks almost certain. It would either be at the end of this year or early 2009.”
