Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has signalled his live return, announcing plans for three shows.
With that long awaited Led Zeppelin re-union still not getting off the ground, fans will just have to make do with solo projects. John Paul Jones has been as busy as ever, mixing solo work with his arranging skills, but Robert Plant has been mysteriously silent.
Famously standing apart from his bandmates over the issue of a re-union, Plant's solo career has entered a purple patch. Grammy awards, hit albums and frequent collaboration have arguably pushed the singer to his highest critical prominence in decades.
Now Robert Plant has signalled his live return. Working with the Sensational Space Shifters, the band seemingly "draw inspiration from the roots music of Mississippi, Appalachia, Gambia, Bristol and the foothills of Wolverhampton."
Fresh from concerts in the United States, the band have confirmed plans for three UK & Ireland shows. Hitting Bristol and Plant's hometown of Wolverhampton, tickets are on sale now.
Robert Plant will play the following shows:
29 Bristol Colston Hall
31 Electric Picnic Festival
2 Wolverhampton Civic Hall
