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."
