ROBERT PLANT: 'Electric Proms' Performance Available For Streaming

LED ZEPPELIN frontman Robert Plant headlined London, England's Roundhouse on October 29 as part of BBC Radio 2's Electric Proms festival. Plant performed with his new band BAND OF JOY — an updated version of his pre-LED ZEPPELIN group which also featured the late John Bonham — and was joined by The London Oriana Choir.

The show was broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 and can now be streamed at this location.

"Band of Joy", the new album from Robert Plant and BAND OF JOY, sold 49,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Plant's first release since recording the six-time Grammy-winning bluegrass album "Raising Sand" with collaborator Alison Krauss in 2007, the "Band of Joy" CD enlists the help of an array of U.S. musicians, all of whom are performing with Plant on tour.

The new lineup of BAND OF JOY includes: Patty Griffin on vocals; Darrell Scott on multiple instruments and vocals; Byron House on bass and vocals; Marco Giovino on drums, percussion and vocals; and co-producer Buddy Miller on guitar and vocals.
