Robert Plant Announces North American Tour
Robert Plant has announced a tour of North America for later this year.
He'll play 10 dates this fall with his backing band, the Sensational Space Shifters, starting on Sept. 13 with a headlining slot at the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, and end on Oct. 3 at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, Ore.
He's playing two other festivals -- Outlaw Music in Indianapolis (on Sept. 20) and Bourbon & Beyond in Louisville (Sept. 21) -- and another with indie retro-soul band Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats in Philadelphia (Sept. 17). All the other dates list only Plant and his band on the bill.
You can see all the tour dates below.
Fans can sign up at Plant's website to receive a code for the pre-sale, which begins tomorrow at 10AM local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 10 at 10AM local time.
Even though Plant will tour with the Sensational Space Shifters, he played a few shows earlier this year with a new band called Saving Grace. The band is described as playing “music inspired by the dreamscape of the Welsh Marches,” with dynamics that go “from a whisper to a scream.”
