Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre in Denver, Colo.

Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters will rock through June.  With special guests Elle King, Sheryl Crow, Jon Langford, Seth Lakeman, Jim James, Los Lobos and Lucinda Williams on select dates, the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman kicks off the fun in Atlanta.

Playing events such as the Arroyo Seco Music and Arts Festival in Pasadena, Calif., and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival in British Columbia, Plant and his Space-Shifting comrades will also hit outdoor venues like the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md., the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheatre in Vail, Colo. and the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, Calif.

Box office data submitted to Pollstar shows Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters selling out venues such as Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater in 2016 where the band sold 2,521 tickets for a night’s gross of $168,706.  However, not every concert was a pack-em-in night for the Space Shifters.  A 2015 gig at Koka Booth Amphitheatre in North Carolina sold just under half of the 7,000-seat house, ending with a final gross just over $162,000.

Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters are touring in support of Carry Fire, released October 2017. Purchase tickets online to receive a CD or digital copy of the album.
