Robert Plant to go on European tour next year

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant is going to make an European tour next year.

Fresh off a hugely successful reunion concert with Led Zeppelin in London, Plant and bluegrass star Alison Krauss announced the European leg of their tour Thursday.

Plant and Krauss released the album "Raising Sand" in October, just about the time Plant and former Led Zeppelin bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones confirmed they would play a one-time only show at a benefit concert for the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.

The Zep show, which took place Monday at the sold-out O2 Arena, drew rave reviews and sparked renewed rumors that the band - with the late John Bonham's son Jason on drums - would tour.

But first, at least, Plant will hit the road with Krauss to tour their album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard chart in the United States and has been widely praised.

The duo will start the tour on May 5 in Birmingham, England, and then move on to Manchester and Cardiff, Wales, before going to Germany, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Norway.

The European leg will conclude in London at the Wembley Arena on May 22.

No other dates have been announced, but Plant and Krauss have said they will tour in the United States as well.
