It’s being billed as the closest we’ll ever get to seeing Led Zeppelin. And it probably will be, when their legendary frontman Robert Plant returns to Australia with his band The Sensational Space Shifters on Sunday, April 8 playing the intimate Riverside Theatre.
With his new album Carry Fire in tow, Plant is in Australia for Bluesfest, and has confirmed that he will perform some of Led Zeppelin’s biggest hits during the tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Recent setlists have included the likes of Whole Lotta Love, Misty Mountain Hop, What Is And What Should Never Be and Black Dog.
As well as performing some of popular music’s most revered classics, Plant’s post-Zep albums, such as 2007’s Raising Sand made in collaboration with Alison Krauss, will be put on display. Raising Sand won six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year.
Carry Fire is out now. Robert Plant plays Riverside Theatre on Sunday, April 8. Tickets on sale Friday October 20.
