ROBERT PLANT & THE SENSATIONAL SPACE SHIFTERS: 'Live At David Lynch's Festival Of Disruption' To Air On AXS TV

AXS TV presents an unforgettable performance by one of rock's most influential performers in the premiere of "Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters - Live At David Lynch's Festival Of Disruption" — airing Sunday, March 5 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. The concert captures the band's unique headlining set at visionary auteur David Lynch's Festival Of Disruption — a fully immersive creative gathering benefiting The David Lynch Foundation.

The hour-long event gives fans a rare opportunity to experience the legendary frontman as they've never seen or heard him before, as he playfully interacts with the crowd and puts a new spin on beloved classics and modern favorites in an intimate setting. Highlights include stripped down and acoustic renditions of LED ZEPPELIN staples "Black Dog", "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" and "Whole Lotta Love", as well as solo standouts "Turn It Up", "Rainbow", "The Enchanter", "Little Maggie" and more.

"Throughout the history of rock, few artists have been as influential and enduring as Robert Plant," said Evan Haiman, vice president of music programming and production. "This incredible concert showcases the music icon at the top of his game, putting his signature vocals and effortless charm on full display as he blazes through an expansive setlist that will satisfy both die-hard fans and curious newcomers, alike. And AXS TV is the only place you can see it."

Plant's 2014 Nonesuch album, "Lullaby And... The Ceaseless Roar", featured eleven new recordings, nine of which are original songs he wrote with the band. "It's really a celebratory record," said Plant, "powerful, gritty, African, trance meets ZEP." Q called it "his best solo album yet … a beautifully moving, soul-stirring, bravely genre-blurring album."

Plant told The Pulse Of Radio that he works hard to maintain a certain level of quality control in everything he does. "Well, you set the bar at a certain height in performance and in mending with your fellow man," he said. "You can’t drop too far down below that. Still, we labor on, but the bar must be kept high and you can't… I don't wish to do anything that's anything below the bar. I keep the bar really high. And the responsibility is, to keep in my own heart, to make sure that I don't waste my gift."

Plant spoke to Relix magazine about his current music and how it connects to his early days in LED ZEPPELIN, explaining, "I want people to know I'm pulling points of reference from other times and other places — incongruous and out of step and kilter — into another world. I've done it with ZEPPELIN lyrics, as well — 'if the sun refused to shine' and 'the road remains the same' and all the shit. There's so many bits like that, because I like the idea of spinning the bottle. And if one or two people pick up on it, that's the justice — that's about right."
