Robert Plant has added an eleven concert North American tour to his current itinerary. The run starts up in San Diego, CA and ends on the East Coast at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The concerts on previous legs of his tour have been some of Plant's most inspired live performances in years. Nearly one year into playing together, the Band of Joy has found a rare sweet spot where composition and improvisation come together to create a firey and soulful brand of rock & roll.
These new dates, which will feature a stop at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in TN, are the latest that have been confirmed in support of his recent, stellar, Band of Joy (Rounder Records) album release. His touring band is the same that made the record: Patty Griffin, vocals; Darrell Scott, multi instrumentalist/vocals; Byron House, bass/vocals; Marco Giovino, drums and percussion/vocals, and co-producer Buddy Miller, guitar/vocals. The full itinerary is listed below.
