When Robert Plant hits the road this spring for a brief North American tour, he’ll bring along with him the Pixies—but only for a few shows.
The former Led Zeppelin frontman today (March 16) announced a new tour that kicks off in May with a set at the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington and will continue through June 17 in Philadelphia.
Five of the shows—all of which are in June—will feature the Pixies as the opening act. Meanwhile, JD McPherson will support for four additional shows.
Of the 15 planned shows, five will take place at festivals, including Bonnaroo and BottleRock.
Plant continues to tour behind his newest album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, which hit stores in September.
Prior to the tour, Plant will unveil a special release for Record Store Day: More Roar, a three-song EP that includes live songs from he and his band’s 2014 tour.
