Sunday Night Concert
Just weeks before they return to Chicago’s lakefront for an XRT Show June 10, hear Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters in all their rockin’ glory when they headlined the 2013 XRT Taste Concert at Taste of Chicago in Grant Park. This is the first time we have broadcast this performance since it aired live in its entirety on 7/12/13. Plant’s re-working of many of Led Zepp’s classics took the entire massive crowd by surprise – and thrilled every one of us! If you haven’t heard him with this band, you really need to tune in on Sunday night for this 90 minute special, starting at 8pm CDT on XRT and 93XRT.com. You also might consider scooping up tickets for their 6/10 XRT Show while they’re still available!
