Robert Plant and band Saving Grace to play in Brierley Hill

TICKETS have gone on sale for a further date to see rock star Robert Plant revisit an old stomping ground.

The legendary musician will be performing with his new band Saving Grace at Brierley Hill Civic Hall on July 24.

With tickets for a show at Dudley Town Hall on July 26 having sold out within an hour, the band have now confirmed they will play an additional date at Brierley Hill two days prior to give fans another chance to see the former Led Zeppelin superstar on stage in the Black Country.

He said: “In the days when I first starting performing around the Black Country it was very evident that each area was its’ own community/little town… and each community had its’ own venue: Dudley Town Hall, Stourbridge Town Hall, Regis Hall, Brierley Hill Civic, Old Hill Plaza, Tipton Baths, Queen Mary Ballroom… I played them all, mostly as a kid opening for the likes of The Hollies, Jean Vincent, Screaming Lord Such, The Fourmost… and others.

“So, with our band, Saving Grace, it’s for me a bit of a reminiscence to play the various communities from where we all hail.”

Saving Grace is a co-operative featuring singer Suzi Dian, Oli Jefferson on percussion, Tony Kelsey on mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars, Matt Worley on banjo, cuatro, acoustic and baritone guitars – alongside vocalist Plant, who lives in Worcestershire but is often seen around Stourbridge.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01384 573381 or online at www.bhillcivic.co.uk.
