Following the announcement of his appearances on Byron Bay’s Bluesfest and the West Coast Blues & Roots Festival in Fremantle, comes the news that Robert Plant will also be performing a series of headline shows along with his band the Sensational Space Shifters.

As well as being the singer and lyricist for iconic rock band Led Zeppelin,  Plant continued to expand his horizons with 2007′s collaboration with Alison Krauss on Raising Sand. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the album’s unlikely but magnificent blend earned innumerable critical raves as well as six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year (forPlease Read the Letter, a Plant/Page song).

The Sensational Space Shifters are his 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.”  Along-side Robert are his semi-regular guitarist Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara from Gambia, Justin’s Ritti – playing partner in their duo Juju.

With his startling voice and amazing stage presence a Robert Plant show is one not to be missed!
