MAY OPEN 2008 LED ZEP DATES
Though Led Zeppelin have no announced no further dates after their upcoming reunion one-off on December 10, rumors stirred by classic rock revivalists The Cult have begun to circulate.

On November 17 in Cincinnati, according to Billboard, The Cult's lead singer Ian Astbury said, "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."
An audience member shouted back, "Led Zeppelin!" In response, Astbury nodded to the affirmative and raised his arm into the air.
While nothing has been confirmed by either camp's spokespeople, it does potentially bode well for a U.S. Led Zeppelin reunion show of some sort.
The Cult released their eighth album, Born Into This, on October 2, their second record since reforming in 2000. The band has been more active than ever since earlier this year when Astbury departed The Doors of the 21st Century, where he got to play Jim Morrison with original Doors Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek.
