Rocker Robert Plant will perform in Belfast and Dublin later this year, it has been announced.

He will be supported on all tour dates by The Sensational Space Shifters.

'Carry Fire' will be Plant's eleventh solo album and first full-length release since 2014’s acclaimed record ‘lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar’.

The iconic star said of his new release: “It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the trawl and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new.

"Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation."
