A tipster who was at last night’s Cult show in Los Angeles writes in with the latest example of Ian Astbury fanning the “dude, we are so opening for Led Zeppelin next summer” flames: “at last night’s show at the Wiltern in L.A., the singer, between songs, sang ‘it’s been a long time since I rock and rolled,’ and then said ‘see you this summer.'” A bit less dorky than the “guess whose band name starts with the letters L and Z” game that he played in Cincinnati, but still, dude is just cruising for a bruising from Robert Plant.
