The legendary Led Zeppelin frontman brings his bluesy, brooding bacchanal to San Antonio on Thursday, March 17.

From fronting one of the most stoned-on-sex, high-on-lust rock 'n' roll bands of all time, to continuously broadening and exhibiting his knowledge and love of the roots music canon, Plant has proved to be more than a one-trick pony. His resurgence in the mainstream, if he was ever gone, was made complete when teaming up with T-Bone Burnett and Alison Krauss on 2007's Grammy-winning Raising Sand, which has since gone platinum. 



In 2012, Plant began work with the Sensational Space Shifters, comprised of a motley group of session players and sidemen whose talents Plant has utilized over time (Strange Sensation), including Austin's Patty Griffin, Plant's former girlfriend. On September 8, 2014, Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters released Lullaby and ... The Ceaseless Roar, a record of primarily original tunes and a couple of re-workings of traditional songs. It was Plant's 10th solo album of his career.

Tickets for this show, which is one of only 11 on the tour, can be purchased online here, or via phone at (210) 223-8624 and in-person at the Tobin Center Box Office, located at 100 Auditorium Circle. Tickets range in price from $59.50-$175 and will go on sale Friday, January 15.
