With his new album Carry Fire set for release Friday October 13, Robert Plant is getting ready to hit the road for a jaunt through the United States Of America and (ostensibly not much of) Canada early next year. Bob’s tour with his band The Sensational Space Shifters will kick off in Raleigh on Friday February 09, with one Great White North gig on the docket so far, in Toronto Saturday February 17. The tour will wrap Friday March 02 in Los Angeles; we’re expecting to hear about additional dates soon.
TicketMaster’s Verified Fan Presale contraption is taking registrations until tomorrow; after that, the hoi polloi will have access to tickets beginning Friday.
