Robert Plant announces last-minute New York show

Robert Plant will play a last-minute, late-night show at the Brooklyn Bowl this Thursday, October 9.

Plant and his band, The Sensational Space Shifters, will head straight to the venue after his appearance on The Colbert Report, where the band will take the stage just after midnight.

The special event will feature a DJ set from The Roots’ drummer Questlove.

Plant issued a statement saying he added the show because he “can’t get enough” of performing. “Any place, anywhere, anytime,” he said. “Just gotta get it out.”

Tickets will go on sale at 3 p.m. Tuesday on the Brooklyn Bowl website.

The New York Times reported "Mr. Plant started the current tour on Sept. 25 in Port Chester, N.Y., at the Capitol Theater, another of Mr. Shapiro’s performance spaces. Then he played two nights at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of the 50th anniversary of his label, Nonesuch. It was during his two-day stay that Mr. Plant and some of his band members visited Brooklyn Bowl, the psychedelic club, which features a bowling alley next to its stage and dance floor. The backing musicians bowled while Mr. Plant, apparently unrecognized by the public, took in part of a burlesque show, Mr. Shapiro said. A few days later he agreed to play the space."

Prior to the concert, Plant will join host Stephen Colbert to promote his new album, “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar.”
