Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters land in Missoula

Ahead of the season’s first winter storm, the night was cold, windy and threatening rain, but a sold-out audience didn’t care.

Robert Plant had come to town.

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters warmed the hearts and memories of the Baby Boomer crowd.

Plant, of Led Zeppelin fame, has not rested on that history. Over the years, he has collaborated with Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin and Alison Krauss, producing a duet album Raising Sand.

His latest band, Sensational Space Shifters, was formed in 2012. His Missoula concert was a perfect way to close out the 2019 season at the Kettlehouse Amphitheatre.
