Reunion fever is very much in the air at present. This week saw hoary, over-rated, dull rock dinosaurs Led Zeppelin reduce grown men to tears when they performed in London.

Given the fact that more than 20 million allegedly entered a lottery for tickets for this show and that some venues are believed to be on hold for next summer, a full Led Zep tour can be expected in 2008.

Tickets for My Bloody Valentine’s comeback shows next summer are also in demand and all seven UK shows next June and July are sold out. Speculation is also rife about possible festival dates, with a date at Spain’s Benicassim already confirmed

The best news of all, though, is That Petrol Emotion have became the latest band to succumb to reunion fever. The band, featuring various Undertones and Yank singer Steve Mack, announced on their website that they’re planning a 2008 tour, beginning with an appearance at Texas super-fest South By Southwest in March with Irish dates to follow in April or May.
