Robert Plant, fresh from fronting a spectacular Led Zeppelin reunion show at London’s O2 Arena on Monday (December 10), has quashed ideas of a full Led Zeppelin tour to follow the legends’ comeback success.
Plant has announced that he is to tour ‘Raising Sand’, his acclaimed collaboration with Alison Krauss.
The UK dates start at Birmingham Arena on May 5 and go through to London’s Wembley Arena on May 22.
European dates include Paris, Amsterdam and Norway, and Plant and Krauss will then head out on a US tour in June.
Even though Plant’s newly announced tour puts paid to the idea of a full scale Led Zeppelin tour in the near future, it still leaves one-off appearances such as Glastonbury Festival and Madison Square Gardens free for shows with his old bandmates…
Tickets to see Plant and Krauss, who go on the road with ‘Raising Sand”s musical director T Bone Burnett start from £29.50 and go on sale Friday (December 14) at 9am.
