Robert Plant and his band the Sensational Space Shifters have returned to North America for a three-week tour celebrating his acclaimed new album, Carry Fire. The tour begins with a show at the State Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park in Atlanta tonight and continues through the end of the month, with shows in New York, Toronto, Chicago, Berkeley, Portland, Seattle, and more, culminating with a concert at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver on June 29, for the Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

Carry Fire is "transfixing," says NPR. "Plant and his collaborators create music that overflows with irrepressible life force ... Carry Fire is rivetingly intimate." The Evening Standard exclaims: "Inventive and exotic, Carry Fire proves Plant’s creative spark is still burning bright." To pick up a copy of the album, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, and listen now on Spotify and Apple Music.

Thanks for writing, Bill. Sorry you missed the February show. While there are no new Minnesota or Iowa shows currently on the books, if you go one more state down, you can see RP at LouFest in St. Louis in September!
