Robert Plant Episode of ‘Austin City Limits’ to Premiere This Weekend

Beginning Saturday (Oct. 15), Austin City Limits, the long-running acclaimed PBS music program, will air a concert by Robert Plant. You can watch the trailer, in which he sings Led Zeppelin‘s “Whole Lotta Love,” above.

Plant performed the show with the Sensational Space Shifters, the backing band with whom he recorded 2014’s lullaby and … The Ceaseless Roar. He recorded it back in March and, of the 13 songs they delivered that night, eight made the final cut. According to the page for the episode on Austin City Limits’ website, they played three songs from lullaby, “Rainbow,” “Turn It Up” and the traditional folk song, “Little Maggie.” Another, “In the Mood,” came from 1983’s The Principle of Moments. The other four songs — “Whole Lotta Love,” “The Lemon Song,” “Black Dog” and “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” are from his Led Zeppelin days.

During the taping, Plant, who resides in Austin, spoke about how the city’s famously diverse musical culture inspired lullaby. “There are no walls in this musical world … everybody had a side trip here and there, me mostly here,” he said from the stage, calling the record a “reflection of all the things we traverse and move through. … When I came to live here, I saw a different picture, a bunch of colors.”

Austin City Limits began its 42nd season two weeks ago with a concert by Paul Simon. Plant had appeared on the show once before, in Season 28. To find out when the episode will be airing on the PBS station near you, visit Austin City Limits’ website.
