Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale has denied saying that his band would open for Led Zeppelin on a world tour.

On Sunday, Whitesnake was quoted as saying that a Led Zeppelin tour was “very likely” and that he was “expecting a call from Jimmy [Page] any day asking my band Whitesnake to support them on their world tour.”

However, in an email to Classic Rock's Geoff Barton Coverdale said he need help to “put out this shitstorm” that had developed.

"What fucking world tour, we ask ourselves? We're already out on our Good To Be Bad world tour, thank you very much," he wrote.

"I have no idea where this started, Geoffers. But, with the wildfire of the internet, my poor ol' German publicist is fighting them off with her rusty, but trusty, Luger.

"I assure you there is no… (of course there fucking isn't) …any foundation in this.”

Reports about the possibility of a Led Zeppelin world tour have continued to grow ever since the band reformed for a one off show at the O2 Arena in London last year.
