Fan-filmed video footage of Robert Plant's October 7 performance at the Palladium in Hollywood, California can be seen below.
"Lullaby… And The Ceaseless Roar", Plant's new solo set with backing band SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS earned the former LED ZEPPELIN frontman a Top 10 hit on The Billboard 200 album chart. According to The Pulse Of Radio, "Lullaby… And The Ceaseless Roar" came in a full five spaces under Plant's previous studio set, 2010's "Band Of Joy", and far below his Top 2 runaway hit with Alison Krauss on their groundbreaking 2007 "Raising Sand" collection. Plant's 2004 album, "Mighty Rearranger", got as high as No. 4.
Robert Plant told The Pulse Of Radio that the success he found in 2007 with the "Raising Sand" album both liberated and centered him creatively. "Following the work with Alison Krauss, which was a spectacular revival of my spirit in a way, I felt I could do more or less anything, I could sink and swim," he explained. "There was no real big partnership moment. I don't have to ask anybody anything. I just stood there a little bit like I did when I was about 17."
Plant has arguably been the lone holdout for another LED ZEPPELIN reunion. Despite promoters essentially offering the band a blank check for a series of concerts, Plant remains committed to his new musical direction in the roots and blues-based "Americana" field.
"I hate to say it, but it felt young," Plant told The Pulse Of Radio. "It felt like I didn't know what was going to happen next, and it didn't really matter — and that was the great thing. I know the songs that I like and the songs that I always attach myself to have been of a certain genre, if they're not self-penned. And I was in very good company with people who had a very familiar lean in the same direction."
