Led Zeppelin are to tour in 2008 - with The Cult as their opening act. Cult frontman Ian Astbury, let the news slip during a concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on Saturday (17Nov07) according to MTVnews.com. The rocker told fans, "We'll be back next year because we're opening for a band you may have heard of... The name starts with an 'L' and has a 'Z' in it." Astbury confirmed he was talking about the recently reunited rock supergroup by nodding when a fan shouted, "Led Zeppelin?" The Stairway To Heaven group's upcoming Ahmet Ertegun tribute concert performance in London (10Dec07) was slated as a one-off reunion, with frontman Robert Plant insisting a tour wasn't part of the plan. But guitarist Jimmy Page recently gave fans a little hope when he suggested the reunion effort would be a waste if was just for one show. He said, "It's a bit silly (not to tour) because there is such massive demand. It's a bit selfish to do just one show. If that's it, we probably shouldn't have taken the genie out of the bottle." Billboard.com reports that a number of U.S. venues have already been approached about staging Led Zeppelin/The Cult summer dates next year (08). If the shows take place, it won't be the first time Astbury has performed with rock royalty - he fronted the reformed The Doors, Riders on The Storm, until earlier this year (07), when he quit to concentrate on The Cult projects.
