Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters on Austin City Limits

Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters’ Austin City Limits performance aired this past weekend. The unforgettable performance marked the legendary frontman’s return to the ACL stage for the first time in more than a decade.

With his multi-cultural, diverse band, he explores the connection between rock ‘n’ roll and traditional African music, revitalizing fan favorites with West African instruments to glorious effect.
