Looks like Robert Plant is going back to the Black Country, as he's announced his new band, The Sensational Space Shifters, will play the Guildhall in Gloucester on May 8th. This is the earliest of the announced concerts for the Sensational Space Shifters. They are also scheduled to play Womad Festival in Malmesbury, Wiltshire on
July 29th and the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival in Clarksdale, MS in August.
The Sensational Space Shifters feature Plant and his "wife" Patty Griffin, Justin Adams, who played with Plant with Strange Sensation Days from 2001 - 2007, Adams collaborator Juldeh Camara, and bassist Billy Fuller, also formerly of Strange Sensation.
Tickets for the Guildhall shops go on sale this Friday, April 20th (maximum of 4).
