Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant’s summer 2021 UK tour with Saving Grace in June, July and August has been cancelled after Boris Johnson delayed the lifting of pandemic restrictions at the end of June. Plant’s tour was planned to go from June 22 until August 2 but many of the early concerts have been cancelled or postponed.
Four Saving Grace shows have been cancelled while two dates have been postponed and rescheduled, LedZepNews has learned. Plant’s June 24th performance in Exmouth sadly will not happen, despite still being listed on his website.
Plant had to “cancel his sold out show because of the social distancing requirements, and can’t reschedule as he has to be back in the USA for remaining 2021/22 commitments,” the venue wrote on Facebook. Plant’s new album with Alison Krauss and his second Band Of Joy album could be the reason, or a separate Saving Grace US tour.
Plant just released a new Digging Deep podcast. A description states: “More than once on Digging Deep, Robert Plant has chosen songs by artists with whom he’s crossed paths many times over the years and this episode is no exception. The track in question is the iconic ‘House Of Cards’, written and first recorded by Linda & Richard Thompson whose own musical history intertwined with Roberts on more than one occasion. As he’ll explain.”
