If you've been hoping to grab yourself a ticket to see Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant in the must-see show of the summer, you'd better be quick because only a handful are still remaining for The Helix in Dublin.

Belfast's Waterfront Hall is now completely sold-out on July 24 for Plant's Saving Grace, a folksy group whose music is described as being inspired by "the dreamscape of the Welsh Marches", but a few tickets can still be had for The Helix the following evening.

Fronted by Plant - who was voted by Rolling Stone and other publications as rock music's greatest singer - is a co-operative also featuring Suzi Dian on vocals, Oli Jefferson on percussion, Tony Kelsey on mandolin, baritone and acoustic guitars, and Matt Worley on banjo, acoustic and baritone guitars, and cuatro.

Plant premiered the new band at a low-key show in Shropshire in February at the SpArC Theatre in Bishop's Castle.

This is less than two miles from the border between England and Wales - with an audience that hadn't been told in advance who was playing.

The concert was arranged, according to the venue, after Plant launched a search for appropriate places to perform with Saving Grace.
