The legendary frontman of the band Led Zeppelin headlines the third artist announcement from Bluesfest, issued today. Plant will be presenting his latest project, the Sensational Shape Shifters.
Led Zeppelin first toured Australia in 1972 and Plant’s last visit to our shores, with Jimmy Page, was in 1996. Dubbed Best Singer of All Time by Rolling Stone readers last year, Plant’s return trip is well overdue.
Other outstanding artists in the third announcement include: Roger Hodgson, the voice of Supertramp; 70s rock band Status Quo; former lead singer of the band Yes, Jon Anderson; and British band Madness.
They join a long line of well-known acts already announced, including Santana, Jimmy Cliff, Iggy & The Stooges, Ben Harper, Steve Miller Band, Chris Isaak, Wilco, Joan Armatrading and many more.
The 24th Bluesfest will take place over the Easter weekend, Thursday March 28 to Monday April 1 2013, at Bluesfest’s Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm.
