Robert Plant announces 4 U.K. dates in September, October

Four U.K. dates have been announced via Robert Plant's official online mailing list.

The first show takes place Sept. 2 at the HMV Forum in London. Tickets to the London show go on sale July 7 at 9 a.m.

It is the only U.K. show so far announced that precedes the U.K. release of his new album, Band of Joy, on Sept. 13.

Plant's three other U.K. shows take place in late October in Wales and England. They are:
In addition to these four dates, Plant is also said to be performing "a one-off gig at a VIP launch party" held at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton. Steve Bull, who spent more than a decade playing for the Wolverhampton Wanderers football club, will be launching a charitable foundation on a date to be announced.

Plant is a longtime fan of the team and, since August 2009, a vice president of the club.

In an article in the Express and Star, Bull comments, "What a night it's going to be. 'Planty' live at Molineux -- incredible. If that doesn't pack the place, nothing will."

Meanwhile, back in the United States, Buddy Miller has been named August's "artist-in-residence" at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. The co-producer of Plant's album, Miller is scheduled to perform at the venue on three consecutive Tuesdays in August.

According to a report from CMT online, the singer and guitarist is slated to perform with some of his favorite collaborators. There has been no word so far as to whether Plant will be one of Miller's guests on any of the dates, Aug. 10, 17 and 24.

Lemon Squeezings will be in attendance as Robert Plant's 12-city North American tour kicks off July 13 at the Orpheum Theater in Memphis.


  1. Love Zeppelin and Robert Plant. Looking at the past loving every minute of it.

  2. Well, we know where Robert will be on his birthday THIS year! LOL! I'll be joining the legendary Texas tribute band Swan Song - A Tribute to Led Zeppelin at the House of Blues Dallas on August 21. It's Swan Song's annual Golden God Birthday Bash. (Robert, you're always on the list as the Guest of Honor!) Check out for more info.
