Robert Plant has announced his upcoming world tour and will be performing live at Ovens Auditorium on Sunday, February 11, accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters!

In celebration of the release of his eleventh solo album, Carry Fire, every online ticket purchase will receive a copy of the new album. Instructions to redeem a copy of the album will be emailed after your ticket purchase.

Carry Fire has already begun drawing early critical notice, with Rolling Stone praising “The May Queen” for its “winsome guitar melodies and rhythms” and the “thunderous” “Bones of Saints” for its “rustic guitars and thumping tom-toms.” “Eastern rhythms are given a warm vibe with the psychedelic leanings of guitar,” noted Consequence of Sound. “Using American folk instrumentation to play altered versions of foreign melodies creates an intoxicating mood, Plant continues to explore his love of the blues and global music on a beautiful new single called ‘The May Queen,’” raved NPR Music, further hailing the track as “a sweetly innocent reflection on aging and the undying power of love to inspire and give life.”

Plant is accompanied by The Sensational Space Shifters: Justin Adams on guitar, acoustic guitar, oud, E-bow quartet, percussion, snare drum, tambourine; John Baggott on keyboards, moog, loops, percussion, drums, brass arrangement, t’bal, snare drum, slide guitar, piano, electric piano, bendir; Billy Fuller on bass, keyboards and drum programming; Dave Smith on bendir, tambourine, djembe, drum kit; and Liam “Skin” Tyson on dobro, guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, twelve-string. They're also joined by a number of special guests, including Chrissie Hynde, Albanian cellist Redi Hasa, and acclaimed musician Seth Lakeman, who contributes viola and fiddle to three tracks. Lakeman will join the Sensational Space Shifters on all upcoming world tour dates.
