Robert Plant

While Led Zeppelin's appearances last year were limited to press conferences and late-night TV interviews, Robert Plant will be going on a tour this year with his new band, The Sensational Space Shifters. That tour kicks off this June in Texas, and after making its way over to the West Coast and back, it culminates in a Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park on July 27. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/26) at noon with an AmEx and a BRIC presale starting Thursday (4/25) at noon.

In addition to Robert Plant, The Sensational Space Shifters' lineup includes Justin Adams (Tinariwen, SInead O'Connor), John Baggot (Massive Attack, Portishead), Billy Fuller (Beak>, Massive Attack), Liam "Skin" Tyson (of The La's offshoot Cast), Juldeh Camara, and Dave Smith.

All tour dates are listed, along with the tour trailer and a live video of the band from 2012, below...

This is awesome, but there's no way I'm paying $60 to sit on the lawn. I'd rather set up camp outside the fence and listen for free.

Looks like a valuable ticket to resell!

Just tour with Zeppelin already! No one wants to see this garbage.

lot of zep in the set list

More than half the set is zeppelin. Go see zeppelin and pay five, six times the price of this.

Doesn't sound very sensational

@11:44

I've seen Robert Plant before. No need to shell out for an overpriced ticket when it sounds just as good 5 feet outside of the fence.

Interesting lineup, wish it wasn't so pricy.

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2013 12:38 PM

11:54 doesn't think twice about dropping +$100 for alcohol / recreational substances on any given Friday night.

Please, do stay away bro!

nope. but keep trying.

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2013 1:27 PM

This is BS. I thought he wanted to move on from Zep and then he does this. Do it right: get back together with JP and JPJ, go on tour, and make wads of cash!!!!!!!

Plant has an awful voice don't waste your time.

Posted by Anonymous | April 23, 2013 3:53 PM

Hope he plays "Addicted to Love". Luv that dude.

I'm glad Led Zep never reunited. Their integrity is still intact, unlike other bands from that time.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2013 4:07 AM

Plant's voice is awful. Page should just tour with the Black Crowes again.

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2013 4:09 AM

dead right 12:44.

and 12:38 - you think $60 is "pricey" to see the former lead singer of led zeppelin who is still relevant today?

as i said before: cheap hipster logic.

Tara Brown came across as charming and sincere. She appreciated his humor and that gave her an opportunity to get Plant to be honest and genuine. In as much as Plant likes to submerge himself in "other projects", and be recognized for them; it is his time with LZ that will FOREVER be what everyone wants to talk about. In as much as he wants to escape the past, it is the success of the 07 Celebration Day concert that will keep the questions coming. They were on that night. He knows it.

The living portal to the deepest, rawest, most painful and perfect blues - RP. This new project is fantastic!
