Red Hot Chili Peppers have revealed plans to persuade Jimmy Page of legendary rock band Led Zeppelin to join them at their UK shows this summer.

The age-defying Peppers have told how Page would be their dream guest for summer shows at Knebworth and Sunderland's Stadium of Light in June.

"Jimmy Page has come to our shows before but we haven't had a chance to play with him," said drummer Chad Smith in an interview with The Daily Star. "That would be really cool so maybe that can happen.

"Maybe we can get Page to come out to Knebworth. I saw him come on with Foo Fighters at Wembley."

Dizzee Rascal is set to support the Chili Peppers at their Knebworth show. Talking about their Knebworth booking, Smith added: "Being a big rock fan, Knebworth is particularly exciting. I first heard about Knebworth when Led Zeppelin played there in 1979, so to me it's hallowed ground and pretty cool that we will be following them."
