Robert Plant has announced tour dates running during March.
He will embark on the “Blues… Roots and Hollers (A Southern Journey)” tour with The Sensational Space Shifters.
“I’m always eager to return to the hospitality of the Southern states,” Plant says. “Towns and cities that hold fond memories for me personally, places that gave birth to so much of the music I love. Our recent travels have taken this wild whirlwind of a band though many incredible and inspiring places, from TK to TK. Having just begun work on our new album, we thought we’d take time out to raise a little sand and welcome springtime with one more adventure, another celebration of life and song.”
