Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters have revealed another solid batch of North American concert dates set for this summer. The announcement on Monday morning came just a few days after the band, led by famous Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, wrapped up their winter tour across North America with a sold-out show at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre on Friday. The 12-show summer trek will see the Plant and company visiting a mix of east and west coast venues starting on June 8 in Atlanta and running until the end of the month with a gig at Seattle’s Marymoor Park Amphitheatre on June 27.
The North American summer tour follows a pair of U.K. festival appearances from the band in late May, and is scheduled to include notable stops at New York City’s Forest Hills Stadium alongside Sheryl Crow on June 13 and a previously announced appearance at Arroyo Seco Weekend in southern California on June 24. Plant and his band will also be joined throughout the run by various support acts including Lucinda Williams, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Los Lobos, Elle King, Seth Lakeman and Jon Langford.
Fans who buy tickets to any of Plant's headlining shows on the June tour will also receive a complimentary copy of the singer’s latest studio album, Carry Fire. Tickets for select shows on the summer tour will be going on sale starting this Friday and Saturday (March 9-10), and can be purchased by clicking here.
During his stay in Los Angeles late last week, Plant also stopped by “The Late Late Show” studios to talk about his somewhat odd life experiences in karaoke. The interview can be watched in full in the clip above.
