Robert Plant, who’s currently on tour in Europe, will head back to this side of the Atlantic for a string of 11 dates, according to Jambase.
The shows will be split between festival gigs and theater shows, with the trek kicking off on September 9th in St. Louis at LouFest and wrapping just under three weeks later on August 29th in Austin at Austin City Limits Live at Moody Theater.
Robert Plant’s current music is unabashedly dipping its toes into many musical genres: “Music from different parts of the world intrigues me, but I’m not really an aficionado of world music. I’m fully aware of what’s going on in quite a lot of different places, but not reverentially. I basically love taking great ideas out of stuff and melding them.”
