Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters

We heard you Adelaide! Following incredible interest in other cities Bluesfest Touring is pleased to announce Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters will be performing for you!

Marking 50 years since Led Zeppelin’s first self-titled album was released, the legendary singer returns to Australia along with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters and a new album ‘Carry Fire’.  It promises to be a powerful show; not to be missed by any true fan.

 

First established in 2002, The Sensational Space Shifters are Plant’s latest project; a loose band “inspired by the roots music of Mississippi, Appalachia, Gambia, Bristol and the foothills of Wolverhampton and drawing on influences collected in a lifetime of meander and journeying.”

 

Plant talks about creating new work after 50 years in the music industry:

 

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation”.

 

Each night on this tour of Australia, Robert Plant will take audiences on an incredible journey through his unique musical life. These shows will include rare performances of some Led Zeppelin hits in intimate spaces that will allow fans to experience the full power of his epic vocal prowess.

Canned Heat (US)

Canned Heat have been a global phenomenon for 40 years due to their classic hits such as “On The Road Again”. They first gained international attention and secured their niche in the pages of rock ‘n roll history with their performances at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival (along with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and The Who) and as headliners at the original Woodstock Festival in 1969.

Their take on modern electric Blues, Rock and Boogie has earned them a loyal following and influenced many aspiring guitarists and bands during the past four decades. Their Top-40 Country-Blues-Rock songs, “On The Road Again,” “Let’s Work Together,” and “Going Up The Country,” became anthems throughout the world with the latter being adopted as the unofficial theme song for the film Woodstock. Their cover version of Wilbert Harrison’s “Let’s Work Together” was actually their biggest hit as it rose to #1 in 31 different countries around the world.

Despite losing two founding members – and then later, long-time guitarist Henry Vestine in 1997, Canned Heat has survived under the leadership of Fito de la Parra since the late 70s.

Anchored throughout by the steady hand of drummer/band leader Adolfo “Fito” de la Parra (a member since 1967) and reunited with long-time manager/producer, Skip Taylor, Canned Heat is well on track to carry the Boogie-Blues it made famous, well into the 21st century with reunion concerts throughout the world again.

Bluesfest Touring is proud to bring this legendary band back to Australia to share their unique blend of roadhouse electric Blues, Rock and Boogie with audiences in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018.
