Don’t Miss the Legendary Robert Plant Tomorrow in Prospect ParkJuly 26th, 2013
Ever since Led Zeppelin (perhaps you’ve heard of them) broke up following the tragic death of drummer John Bonham in 1980, frontman Robert Plant has remained busy with a variety of projects and pairings, focusing on blues, country, folk, Americana and rock. Never one to go too long without doing something new, the music legend is currently fronting his latest band, the Sensational Space Shifters—Justin Adams, John Baggot, Juldeh Camara, Billy Fuller, Dave Smith and Liam “Skin” Tyson—reinterpreting world music and Zeppelin classics through roots music, while still managing to make the tunes rock. “We take primeval desert instruments and bring them into contemporary soundscapes,” Plant tells the Boston Herald. “Where Massive Attack and Led Zeppelin left off, we keep going.” Of course, the best part is that Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters (above, doing “Black Dog,” and, below, covering “Spoonful”), along with Matthew Houck’s fantastic Phosphorescent, play Celebrate Brooklyn at the Prospect Park Bandshell tomorrow night.
