(Newser) – Lead guitarist Jimmy Page has dropped some serious hints that a Led Zeppelin world tour may be on its way. Promoting the band's Mothership album in Japan, Page said the successful reunion concert in London in December proves that they're ready for a tour, reports the Daily Telegraph. “There is something in it but I can’t give you any more news at the moment," a spokesman said.

Nothing can happen until the fall though, because singer Robert Plant is currently touring with Alison Krauss. "He’s really busy with that project, certainly until September, so I can’t give you any news," said Page. The reunion concert, perhaps the hottest event of 2007, drew more than 1 million applications for 22,000 tickets.
