    Thanks for the comments and hope you find the above useful.

    The comment immediately above says something like, “I was a London, but without ticket, snif, but thats the way it had to be. Had fun just the same. I could listen to the last 3 songs thanks to a nice guy who opened the doors of a corridor so that we could hear.”

    Who will Led Zeppelin have as an opening act on their 2008 US tour???
    The rumors have finally been silenced: Plant has personally tapped his illegitimate son’s band–MEAN VENUS–to open all 2008 shows.
    MEAN VENUS’ lead singer, J, when recently interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, spoke of his utter disbelief at the prospect:
    “I only found out he [Plant] was my dad a few years ago.
    My mum hid it from me for the majority of my life. So to actually be going on the road with my Dad is bloody outrageous!”…..

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    Jack G, do you have any sources? I don’t believe anything concrete has been said yet (though the best rumor appears to be with The Cult opening) and most signs point to ‘no tour.’

    I was at the concert…and it was the most incredible thing I have ever seen in my life…we paid alot of money to be there…but it was worth every single penny..priceless….priceless…priceless

    Denise, believe me, I tried to get tickets but couldn’t get the lottery nor afford scalpers prices. On an up note, the concert’s change of date really might have messed me over so I am hoping for a tour.

    That dude from mean venus aint opening for nobody. He died 6 months ago from a heroin overdose. Supposedly he was working with Axl Rose of Guns and Roses at the 11th hour writing material for inclusion on Chinese Democracy. He was one of the rotating songwriters in Axl’s new circus. Guess he couldn’t handle playing with the big boys. only 27 years old!

    This is also supposedly one of the reasons that Plant isn’t doing the tour too. After this Krauss b.s. he is done. Really ashame the Zep guys can’t honor Plant’s decision and understand that losing your son to heroin is something that most people never emotionally come back from.

    RIP J

    MEAN VENUS ruled!!!

    Chandler, I think the bigger shame is the band can’t put their petty power struggle behind them and deliver a tour to their fans.

    A shame they can’t honor Plant’s decision? He is touring with Krauss with some weak material (though good) compared to LZ. Its a shame Plant is still pulling this.

    I doubt Plant is too emotionally distraught after the death of his illegitimate son who didn’t even know who his father was until a couple years ago.

    And with the vast amount of money involved, its hard to see him come off like anything other than a big a$$hole.
