Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters, Live In Concert

Robert Plant was just brilliant in Brooklyn on Sept. 28. Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters played a stunning set of music that did what Robert Plant does best: mixing up American blues, British rock, North African rhythms and even some electronica with that voice, still filled with passion after all these years.

The set included three songs from his new album lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar, including "Little Maggie" with its roots in early American music but also a gorgeous piano piece played by John Baggott from Massive Attack.

Despite the strong new songs, there's nothing like familiarity, and hearing "Whole Lotta Love," "No Quarter," "Going to California" and "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" had the sold-out crowd at the Brooklyn Academy of Music simply ecstatic.

The former Led Zeppelin singer released lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar earlier this month. Plant's Sensational Space Shifters include Justin Adams (guitar), John Baggott (keyboards), Juldeh Camara (a two-stringed West African lute called the kologo and a one-string West African violin called the ritti), Billy Fuller (bass), Liam "Skin" Tyson (guitar) and Dave Smith (percussion).

Set List
  • "No Quarter"
  • "Poor Howard"
  • "Thank You"
  • "Turn It Up / Black Dog"
  • "Rainbow"
  • "Going To California"
  • "A Stolen Kiss"
