Robert Plant in homecoming gig at Wolverhampton Civic

Wolverhampton | News | Published:

Rock legend Robert Plant today announced a homecoming gig in the Black Country.

The star will perform with his latest band Sensational Space Shifters at Wolverhampton Civic Hall.

The gig on September 2 is one of just two UK dates.

The Led Zeppelin frontman, who was born in West Bromwich and is vice-president of Wolves, last played at the Civic in 2005.

He is currently touring in America and his only other date in the UK will be in Bristol, while he will also fit in a show at Irish Festival Electric Picnic.

Civic spokesman Jonn Penney said: "Obviously we're absolutely delighted that we've got such a world class name such as Robert Plant coming back to the Civic.

"We know he's fond of the region and effectively he's decided to drop in on a hometown show.

"We're chuffed to have a name like that associated with the venue."

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10am today and cost £40 for standing or £45 for the balcony.
