Robert Plant has called off a series of tour dates scheduled in Spain this summer.
The Led Zeppelin singer noted that he would not be performing with his project The Sensational Space Shifters in July, explaining on his website: "It's with regret to announce that due to scheduling conflicts, the Sensational Space Shifters have had to postpone their Spanish tour. Tickets can be refunded through local ticketing agents."
The news conflicts with previous reports of Plant's exhaustion as the reason for his cancelling those tour dates. The rest of his tour dates with The Sensational Space Shifters are not affected by this cancellation.
Plant is slated to release remastered versions of three Led Zeppelin albums on June 3 and is currently working on a new album with Nonesuch records, with the album tentatively set for release on September 9.
He recently told Rolling Stone magazine of the album's sound: "It's really a celebratory record, but it's very crunchy and gritty, very West African and very Massive Attack-y. There's a lot of bottom end, so it might sound alright at a Jamaican party, but I'm not sure it would sound alright on NPR."
