Robert Plant announces UK tour with Saving Grace

Robert Plant is teaming up with Saving Grace for a fall UK tour.

The three-week series in November will see the rocker perform with Saving Grace, the co-operative featuring Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone, acoustic guitar), and Matt Worley (banjo, acoustic, baritone guitars, cuatro).

The Led Zeppelin icon formed the group in 2019; the outfit bills themselves as performing a repertoire of "music inspired by the dreamscape of the Welsh Marches," songs that span Plant's diverse tastes and influences – notably his lifelong passion for British and American folk, spirituals, and traditional blues – including a number of beloved standards and longtime favorites by Doc Watson, Donovan, Moby Grape and Low, among others.

Tickets for the fall shows – with special guest Taylor McCall – will go on sale Friday. August 18 at 10 AM local time here.

Plant and Saving Grace just announced their first-ever track release: "As I Roved Out." As a thank you to ticket buyers for the upcoming tour, fans will receive an exclusive free download link to the track on their ticket confirmation upon purchase.
