Robert Plant Announces 2014 North American Tour
Robert Plant has announced that he will embark on a North American tour with the Sensational Space Shifters this fall. The concerts will be in support of his upcoming album, ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar,’ which will arrive Sept. 9.
So far, the former Led Zeppelin frontman will only play seven shows, with three alone in the New York area, including two nights at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of his label, Nonesuch. The other cities are Toronto, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles, and the dates can be found below. It was not specified in the press release that other concerts will be added in the future.
Tickets for Plant's tour will go on pre-sale beginning Aug. 15. Citi card members will have access to an even earlier pre-sale on Aug. 12. For complete information, visit Plant's website or Citi's Private Pass website.
According to Plant, ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar' is "really a celebratory record, powerful, gritty, African, Trance meets Zep" and that, with the Sensational Space Shifters, he's now "able to express my feelings through melody, power and trance; together in a kaleidoscope of sound, color, and friendship.” A video for the song 'Rainbow' -- which you can see above -- was released earlier today.
