ROBERT PLANT Doing LED ZEPPELIN Songs On Tour With ALISON KRAUSS

April 30, 2008

The Pulse of Radio reports that Robert Plant and Alison Krauss recently wrapped up a few U.S. shows and are headed off to tour Europe in May. They'll return this summer to kick off another U.S. leg and are being joined onstage by producer and musician T-Bone Burnett. He tells The Pulse of Radio we can expect a variety of songs at the show, including some LED ZEPPELIN songs. "We're doing 'Black Dog'. I think we're doing some more obscure ones too. We're doing a couple of B-sides. We're doing 'The Battle of Evermore', which is just mind-blowing. And that's something that LED ZEPPELIN never did live. So it's a great chance to do it now with Alison singing the Sandy Denny part. And of course she just kills it."

Plant and Krauss are among the more than 125 artists performing at the seventh annual Austin City Limits Music Festival, scheduled for September 26-28 at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.

The pair won "Wide Open Country Video of the Year" at the Country Music Television Awards recently for the song "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)".
