Former Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant has announced his first  2013 American show with his backing band, Sensational Space Shifters. Plant and the Space Shifters will be performing at the inaugural JamBase Live Festival, taking place July 5-6 at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington. Other performers at the festival include Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers and Robert Randolph & the Family Band.

At the present time, there are no other American dates Plant’s official site. Could this bode well for planning a 2014 Led Zeppelin reunion? Only time will tell.

Plant has been busy as of late, contributing vocals to partner Patty Griffin’s upcoming record while also making plans with Griffin for a new Band of Joy album.

The singer has also thrown his support behind the Bell Community Buyout, which is raising money to rescue a Bath, UK venue called the Bell that is under the threat of closure. The public is being encouraged to buy shares ranging from £500 to £20,000 to help the venue remain open.

“For the last ten years or so many of my musical adventures have been with friends from Bristol and Bath, so I’m fully aware of the Bell and its legacy and its contribution to the musicians and audience in the surrounding area,” Plant says.

“To me, the Bell is a crucial and integral venue and a great window into the world of music and entertainment in the West Country.”
