Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters and Van Morrison will join John Fogerty and The Steve Miller Band in the line-up For BluesFest 2018 at the 3Arena in Dublin on October 28.
Plant brings his latest outfit, the Sensational Space Shifters to Dublin to perform Led Zeppelin classics alongside tracks from his solo albums, including music from Carry Fire, his eleventh solo album, which was released in October 2017.
Van Morrison comes to the festival for a set that will include music from his new studio album You’re Driving Me Crazy, which is released next month. The album follows hot on the heels of the swing-inclined Versatile and the bluesy Roll with the Punches both of which were released last year.
"It’s been way over 50 years since I first shared the stage with Van Morrison and his band were positioned No.2 on the charts with Here Comes the Night (at the time)," says Plant of his esteemed peer.
"His style then and now remains unique and loaded with deep soul. I'm looking forward to an exciting and dynamic night."
Gritty-voiced sixties legend John Fogerty will perform a Creedence Clearwater Revival greatest hits set with special guests The Steve Miller Band, also at 3Arena, Dublin on Friday October 26.
