The erstwhile Led Zep frontman's
bringing a reconstituted Band of Joy with him to Robinson on July 15. As all true Robert Plant geek's know, Band of Joy was the act Plant and John Bonham played in pre-Zep.
This new version of Joy includes noted producer and roots singer/songwriter Buddy Miller on guitar and Patty Griffin on backing vocals, so I'm guessing it'll find Plant exploring territory more in the neighborhood of his recent Grammy winning collab with Allison Krauss than the rawk of yore. A Plant and Band of Joy album is due out sometime this summer or early fall on Rounder.
Tickets go on-sale next Saturday.
