In case you haven't heard, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters have been booked to play the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, with a gig June 29 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
That's good news for Led Zeppelin freaks, because Plant has been known to give a number of his beloved old hard-rock band's tunes a folk-roots workout.
I saw him do it back in 2011 when he played the Queen E. with his Americana group Band of Joy. The setlist that night included toned-down versions of “Black Dog”, “Gallows Pole”, “Houses of the Holy”, and “Ramble On”.
And with his current roots band, the Sensation Space Shifters, Plant has been pushing the Zep catalogue even more.
Just don't expect to hear any violin bows scraped against Les Pauls at ear-busting volume is all.
Tickets are priced from $150 to $230 (plus service charges) and go on sale Wednesday (March 14) at 10 am right here.More
