Robert Plant to Play 800-Seat Brooklyn Club
Who hasn’t seen Robert Plant romping around as a tiny little speck in some impossibly cavernous stadium? But the opportunity to get up close and personal with the ex-Led Zeppelin frontman in an intimate club? Well, that’s a squeeze of a different lemon.
And it’s exactly what some New York City-area fans will get, as Plant joins the Sensational Space Shifters for a midnight show on Thursday at the 800-seat Brooklyn Bowl — just after Plant appears on Comedy Central’s ‘Colbert Report.’
Plant is appearing in support of ‘lullaby and … the Ceaseless Roar,’ an internationally flavored new studio effort that marks his first solo work since 2005’s ‘Mighty ReArranger.’ Plant apparently first visited the Brooklyn Bowl during his recent two-night stand at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Peter Shapiro, the club’s co-founder, also oversees the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, N.Y., where Plant kicked off his current tour.
As for returning to such a small stage, Plant says the size of the spotlight doesn’t matter — only that he can get his music out to appreciative fans. Even today, Plant said in a statement after news of the Brooklyn Bowl show broke, he “can’t get enough” of performing. “Any place, anywhere, anytime,” he added. “Just gotta get it out.”
