Robert Plant is 63 today.
From his vital contribution to Led Zeppelin and on through an eclectic solo career, Robert Plant has occupied a unique position at the forefront of rock culture for over 43 years.

That unmistakeable voice and that charismatic presence, together with an quenching thirst for musical invention and energy have placed Robert Plant in a category of his own.

In the past 12 months working within The Band Of Joy, he has provided some of the most remarkable nights of his career –notably for us his life affirming gigs at the Birmingham Symphony Hall and Electric Proms London Roundhouse last October.

Robert Plant is a musician who has made his vision real. Long may he shine it all around…
