Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters have just rolled out nine new North American fall dates. The trek kicks off North or the border on September 13th in Fredericton, New Brunswick at the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival and winds down on October 3rd in Bend, Oregon at Les Schwab Amphitheater.
In addition to the just announced dates, Plant and the band already have several other U.S. shows already on the books including “Woodstock 50” in Upstate New York and Louisville, Kentucky's Bourbon & Beyond Festival.
Robert Plant explained that the truest expression of his musicality today can be summed up by the work he does with Sensational Space Shifters: “The biggest joy is to get it right — to feel that you got it right. The whole thing, it's like a weave, because it's not the kind of. . . what people would expect. I've made a lot of music in Nashville and I've worked a lot with. . . (I've) modified my singing style quite a lot to fit in with another process. So, the music that I made with Alison Krauss and with the Band Of Joy was more reflective. And when I came back to the UK recently, I just missed these guys and the way that they — they're coming from great places, y'know? It's strong urban British music.”
Robert Plant released his latest album, Carry Fire, back in October 2017. The set topped out at Number 14 on the Billboard 200 and hit Number Three in Britain.
