Gung Ho For Shows: Robert Plant and The Sensational Spaceshifters

Former frontman of Led Zeppelin announces Bend stop on North American tour

If  Led Zeppelin came on the radio back in the day, my dad would make sure to let everyone in the car know that they were indeed "the greatest rock band of all time." Lucky for Central Oregonians, one of the pieces to the Zeppelin puzzle will be making his way to Bend.

Robert Plant—former Zeppelin frontman—just announced a 10-stop North American tour with The Sensational Spaceshifters as his backing band.

His closing show? Right here at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend on October 3.



LES SCHWAB AMPHITHEATER
  • Les Schwab Amphitheater

Known especially for his vocals and songwriting ability, this is a huge opportunity to catch a live show from one of the biggest players in the history of rock 'n' roll. Plant's latest solo album, "Carry Fire," was released in 2017. If you've listened to that, it's pretty easy to tell: Plant's still got it.

Being the final show of the tour, Central Oregon gets the privilege to truly help Plant go out with a bang.

Here's the full tour schedule:

Sept 13 – Fredericton, NB – Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival
Sept 17 – Philadelphia, PA – The Mann Center w/ Nathaniel Ratliff and the Night Sweats
Sept 20 – Indianapolis, In – Outlaw Music Festival
Sept 21 – Louisville, KY – Bourbon & Beyond Festival
Sept 23 – Clear Lake, IA – Surf Ballroom
Sept 25 – Moorhead, MN – Bluestem Center For The Arts Amphitheater
Sept 27 – Missoula, MT – Kettlehouse Amphitheater
Sept 29 – Spokane, WA – First Interstate Center For The Arts
Oct 1 – Salt Lake City, UT – Eccles Theater
Oct 3 –  Bend, OR – Les Schwab Amphitheater


Tickets for the tour go on local pre-sale Thurs., May 9, from 10am-10pm. You can find tickets for the Bend show right here. The password for the pre-sale is "local." There's a good chance these tickets could sell out fast – so make sure to be on your toes.
