Whitesnake Join Led Zeppelin Tour Hopefuls
WHITESNAKE are the latest band to announce they are confident of receiving an invitation from LED ZEPPELIN to join them on a forthcoming world tour.
The Stairway To Heaven hitmakers staged a reunion concert in London in December (07) and have left fans waiting to find out whether they will schedule any more shows.
Many bands, including The Cult and Stone Temple Pilots, have since come forward to express their interest in landing a support slot if the newly reformed rockers decide to embark on a global tour.
And Whitesnake have now joined the list of hopefuls, with frontman David Coverdale insisting they are very likely to be given a coveted place alongside the legendary band.
He tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "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!"
And Coverdale is convinced that if Led Zeppelin do tour - it will far outstrip the efforts of fellow veteran rockers The Rolling Stones.
He adds, "Unlike rolling out the wheelchairs with the umpteenth Rolling Stones World Tour, a Led Zeppelin tour will be incredible."
