Robert Plant, Suzi Dian and band Saving Grace
tour at Worthing and Bexhill in July
Coastal Events have announced that the Saving Grace tour will visit Worthing Pavilion on 19th July and De La Warr Pavilion on 20th July.
The co-operative Saving Grace project features Robert Plant and Suzi Dian (vocals), Oli Jefferson (percussion), Tony Kelsey (mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars) and Matt Worley (banjo, cuatro, acoustic and baritone guitars). These five musicians work in glorious harmony from start to finish, reworking a selection of diverse cover versions that have been collected from various places creating a musical journey in its truest form.
The show also stars special guest singer songwriter Scott Matthews. Hugely admired by Robert Plant, Scott has been performing since 2006 and shot to success when he earned himself the Ivor Novello award with his first ever single Elusive.
English singer/songwriter Robert Plant CBE is best known for his time as lyricist and lead singer of rock giants Led Zeppelin. The band are one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with record sales well over two hundred million. They achieved eight consecutive UK number one albums and six number one albums in the USA.
Having developed himself as a charismatic rock-and-roll frontman, and with Zeppelin calling it a day in 1980, he has since gone on to work with many elite artists and has enjoyed a legendary solo career spanning over fifty years, comprising eleven studio albums, two compilation albums, three video albums, four collaborative albums and forty-two singles.
Some highlights of his solo work include forming a short-lived all-star group with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck called the Honeydrippers in 1984 and in 2002 releasing a widely acclaimed collection of blues and folk remakes, with his then newly formed band Strange Sensation entitled Dreamland. In 2007 he collaborated with bluegrass and country music artist Alison Krauss, releasing the critically acclaimed Raising Sand album, winning many awards.
Rolling Stone editors ranked him number fifteen on their list of the hundred best singers of all time, with readers ranking Plant the greatest of all lead singers.
