Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters coming to Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte Feb. 11

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 5, 2017) Ovens Auditorium will host Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, celebrating their newest album “Carry Fire” on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018, at 8 p.m. Tickets are sold out, however verified resale tickets can be repurchased online at Resale tickets start at $88 (plus applicable service charges) and are subject to change.

In his 11th solo album and first full-length album since “lullaby and…The Ceaseless Roar” debut in 2014, Plant is accompanied by the Sensational Space Shifters. The duo unite on “Carry Fire” with a number of special guests, including the vocalist Chrissie Hynde, cellist Redi Hasa and acclaimed musician Seth Lakeman.

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters spent nearly two years on the road together supporting “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar,” their one-of-a-kind sound and vision ultimately evolving into something even more creative and powerful. Now, with “Carry Fire,” Plant and his collaborators have fashioned a remarkable new collection of songs, melding unusual rhythms with naturalism and smoldering power.

“It’s about intention,” says Plant. “I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the trawl and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. Consequently the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation."

"Carry Fire" has already begun drawing early critical notice, with Rolling Stone praising “The May Queen” for its “winsome guitar melodies and rhythms" and the "thunderous" "Bones of Saints" for its “rustic guitars and thumping tom-toms.”
