Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters, and Van Morrison have both been announced as playing full sets at Bluesfest London, which returns to the various venues of O2 Arena, Greenwich, from Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th October 2018. Plant and Van Morrison will appear on Friday 26th October.

Plant appeared as a guest for Bill Wyman's 80th birthday show at BluesFest in 2016, and this time brings his Sensational Space Shifters "to perform classic Led Zeppelin material alongside tracks from his acclaimed solo projects including Carry Fire, his eleventh solo album, which was released in October 2017". Van Morrison returns to the festival "for a career-spanning set that will include music from his new studio album You're Driving Me Crazy, which is released this month".

Robert Plant said"It's been way over 50 years since I first shared the stage with Van Morrison; and his band were positioned no.2 on the charts with 'Here Comes the Night'. His style then and now remains unique and loaded with deep soul. I'm looking forward to an exciting and dynamic night."

BluesFest Director Leo Green said"For Bluesfest to present an evening featuring full sets from Robert Plant & Van Morrison is a huge honour. Robert Plant & Van Morrison have made some of the most important recordings in the history of music and they both continue to be as vital, relevant and brilliant as they have always been - this promises to be an incredible evening."
