New York, NY - Rounder Records is excited to announce that Robert Plant has confirmed a 15-date North American tour. Beginning January 18th in Asheville, NC, this will be the first tour on these shores since the triumphant release of his latest album, Band of Joy, which Rolling Stone magazine in its four-star review called "sweet, elegant folk that still swings like Satan's barn door." The touring band will once again be the same that made the record: Patty Griffin, vocals; Darrell Scott, multi instrumentalist/vocals; Byron House, bass/vocals; Marco Giovino, drums and percussion/vocals, and co-producer Buddy Miller, guitar/vocals. North Mississippi Allstars will be supporting on all the dates. The full itinerary is listed below.

The response to Band of Joy has been glowing. Time called the new album "smoldering," while Entertainment Weekly noted that Plant "sounds vocally re-energized." Spin described the songs as "moonshine-soaked country blues with a gospel undercurrent," and American Songwriter claimed that the record "reveals another side of Plant's persona, and touches on all the places he's been while simultaneously pointing to an appealing, restless future." The Washington Post hailed, "Plant has nuance and subtlety to match his power and range," while the New York Times raved that the performances on Band of Joy are "consistently surprising." At radio, the album's single "Angel Dance" has been growing at Triple A steadily since its release. It's been Top 10 since August, Top 5 since September, and #1 for the last two weeks and counting.

The tour dates are below:

January

18 Asheville, NC Thomas Wolfe Auditorium

19 Pittsburgh, PA Peterson Events Center (University of Pittsburgh)

21 Ann Arbor, MI Hill Auditorium

22 Toronto, ONT Sony Centre for the Performing Arts

25 Boston, MA House of Blues

26 Upper Darby, PA Tower Theatre

28 Mashantucket, CT MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino

29 New York, NY Beacon Theatre




February

1 Washington, DC DAR Constitution Hall

2 Raleigh, NC Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

4 North Charleston, SC North Charleston Performing Arts Center

5 Atlanta, GA Fox Theatre

7 Charlotte, NC Ovens Auditorium

8 and 9 Nashville, TN War Memorial Auditorium

I wondered why the Nashville man didn't have a date this past tour. NOW we get two dates!

Thanks for the heads up. Tickets will sell like the McRib Combo.

Here in MN, no Greg, no ABB and now no Plant.
Tired of being flyover country!

agreed...when I first saw the dates, I thought, maybe, then I saw NMA with him and it turned into a "better not miss this one!"

Many of the shows are listed on TM, and prices look reasonable. Presales begin as early as tomorrow, though Robert's site has no info thereon. Anyone know if I'm missing something on how to get in on the presale?

It depends on the promoter. IMP is doing the DC show, so I am on their mailing list which gives out
the presale info, nothing yet from them. (IMP does the 930 club, Merriweather and other select DC venues)

not sure who is doing the show in your town.

Tour starts Tues. Who's going to this?

I got some good Fox tix from a dude on a bicycle today I contacted through Craigslist. Hard tix, but this makes me nervous! Never used CL before.

Why do you say this? The NMA site says NMA will open all the shows, and you'd have to assume all 3.
