Robert Plant is back on the road soon with his band The Sensational Space Shifters. The former Led Zeppelin singer is embarking on a short tour in the South, kicking off at the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival in Florida.
From Plant’s website:
“I’m always eager to return to the hospitality of the Southern states,” Robert said in a statement. “Towns and cities that hold fond memories for me personally, places that gave birth to so much of the music I love.”
He continues, “Our recent travels have taken this wild whirlwind of a band though many incredible and inspiring places. Having just begun work on our new album, we thought we’d take time out to raise a little sand and welcome springtime with one more adventure, another celebration of life and song.”
Plant’s most recent solo album Lullaby and the Ceaseless Roar was released Sept. 8, 2014.
Jimmy Page had confirmed late last year that he will do some sort of tour this year, leaving out further details. At the same time, he suggested that he had hoped for more Led Zeppelin shows after the 2007 reunion at the O2 Arena; whether or not the two are open to more reunion shows would be speculation at this time.
