Spokesman Stephen Sheldrake said: “These five musicians work in glorious harmony from start to finish, reworking a selection of diverse cover versions that have been collected from various places creating a musical journey in its truest form.

“The show also stars special guest singer songwriter Scott Matthews. Hugely admired by Robert Plant, Scott has been performing since 2006 and shot to success when he earned himself the Ivor Novello award with his first-ever single Elusive.

“English singer songwriter Robert Plant is best known for his time as lyricist and lead singer of rock giants Led Zeppelin in the late 60s to 70s. Having developed himself as a charismatic rock-and-roll frontman, he has since gone on to work with many elite artists and has enjoyed a legendary singing career spanning over 50 years. During his illustrious career, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 15 on their list of the 100 best singers of all time, with readers ranking Plant the greatest of all lead singers. Hit Parader magazine named Plant the greatest metal vocalist of all time and a Planet Rock poll saw Plant voted the greatest voice in rock.”

Tickets for Saving Grace at The De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill are priced from £32.50 and can be purchased on presale from Thursday, June 10, with general sale on Friday, June 11, via coastalevents.co.uk and dlwp.com.
