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.

Oh lord, the teasing is simply unbearable.

So how many different bands have claimed they'd open for Zeppelin? Let's see: The Cult, Velvet Revolver, Stone Temple Pilots, Whitesnake. I'm sure they'll be more.

STP??

...hadn't heard that one

According to Robert, it was one of the reasons STP got back together.

That and...ya know... the large sums of money being offered.

I always got the impression that Plant thought that Coverdale was always trying to rip off his look and sound. I don't think he is very fond of Whitesnake's music. And surely Zeppelin could get someone better than Whitesnake to open for them.

Yeah, he wishes.

It would never happen. Let's think: the biggest reunion tour in years (bigger than The Police, even) with millions upon millions in revenue... they're going to get an expired has-been '80s glam metal band to open for them? A band that hasn't had a hit album in probably a couple decades?

Music group Whitesnake are confident that they will be invited by legendary rock band Led Zeppelin to join them on a world tour.The Zeppelin tour has been eagerly awaited ever since they performed a one-off gig in London last December, contactmusic.com reports.

Said David Coverdale, lead singer of Whitesnake: "I'm expecting a call from Jimmy (Page, Led Zeppelin guitarist) any day asking my band Whitesnake to support them on a world tour. Am I on board? You bet! It's probably worth billions."

Coverdale also thinks Zeppelin will be much better than the Rolling Stones in concert.

He added: "Unlike rolling out the wheelchairs with the umpteenth Rolling Stones World Tour, a Led Zeppelin tour will be incredible."

I wouldn't get your hopes up buddy. I'm pretty sure Zeppelin would be able to secure a better opening band than "Whitesnake".

Would be a disaster if they didn't. :lol:
