Robert Plant Live DVD Due: Watch

Share This:

Available for the first time on DVD and Digital Video, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters’ Live at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption on Feb. 9. Filmed as part of film director Lynch’s inaugural Festival of Disruption, described in a press release as “one of Los Angeles’ most anticipated cultural events,” this concert took place at the Ace Hotel Theatre in October 2016, raising funds for the David Lynch Foundation.

Performing with Sensational Space Shifters since 2012, Plant, says the release, “continues to shift the musical goalposts, blurring the lines between rock, blues, folk and world music and finding new life in exotic beats and African rhythms.”

With a set including what’s described as “a new take on beloved Led Zeppelin classics,” stripped-down versions of “Black Dog” and “Whole Lotta Love” are “met with a rapturous response from the packed theater audience, with whom Plant enjoys a genuine rapport,” the announcement says. Also included are “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” and “Going to California”, alongside solo standouts “Turn It Up,” “The Enchanter/Rainbow” and “Little Maggie.” Pre-order is available here.

The David Lynch-curated event aims to feature artists with “knowledge and mystery,” the press release concludes, adding, “Undoubtedly Robert Plant has an abundance of both.”

Proceeds from the sale of this DVD will benefit the David Lynch Foundation.
