Robert Plant to embark on South American tour

Recommended Posts

Various Chilean media are reporting today that Robert Plant with the Sensational Space Shifters will be touring South America in the last quarter of 2012.

Below's a translation from La Tercera,

"(Plant) has set his arrival into Chile. It'll be in the first half of November at the Movistar Arena, according to the agenda set by his staff and a local producer. Also, the tour includes several stops in South America, with a possible starting point in Brasil in late-October, continuing on to Buenos Aires, Santiago and Mexico City. In fact, the Brazilian portal Uol revealed that the British musician will visit that country in late-October, proceeding then to the rest of the region".

It will be a bit of a surprise if the South america thing is true/comes off as his appetite for such distant travel seems to have diminished ( he has cited health reasons), but I for one would be thrilled if it happened, as there are so many loyal fans there. The Balearics are indeed Spanish, he has a connection to the area through family property.

There's a website that cites a Chilean date as early as November 5 and the story was picked up by Rolling Stone Brasil. I'll be posting as more information becomes available.

It seems the promoters have added "The Voice of Led Zeppelin" to promo materials?

Thanks, Steve, for pointing that out. I was just going to question if Robert Plant was on board with the idea of that tagline "The Voice of Led Zeppelin"?

It seemed highly suspect he would approve of that.

I don't see the Brazilian dates listed. Could anyone confirm if the shows in Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre are still occurring?

Well they are using a picture from that time period on the poster as well so why not completely throw people off on what they can expect to hear and see
