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.
