As the outdoor concert season approaches, Richmond Raceway and AEG Presents announce Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters will bring their national concert tour to Virginia Credit Union LIVE! at Richmond Raceway on Sunday, June 10 at 7 p.m.
Tickets for this one-of-a-kind concert experience will go on sale to the public on Friday, March 9 at 10 a.m. RICHMOND NATION season ticket holders and Virginia Credit Union members will receive an exclusive pre-sale for the concert on Thursday, March 8 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
From being the lead singer of Led Zeppelin to a successful solo career, Robert Plant is regarded as one of the greatest singers in rock and roll history. Plant has been touring on and off with this band, Sensational Space Shifters, since 2002. Their first album, entitled Lullaby and… the Ceaseless Roar, was released in 2014.
This year’s national tour is promoting the band’s latest album Carry Fire in which Plant reflects on his experiences, the emotions and the sounds of where he’s been, and on where he – and our world – might be headed. The Sensational Space Shifters are made up of guitarist Justin Adams, keyboardist-programmer John Baggott, bassist Billy Fuller, drummer Dave Smith and guitarist Liam “Skin” Tyson.
The Commonwealth Mall at Virginia Credit Union LIVE! will feature concessions, displays, and merchandise on the day of the event, with gates opening at 6 p.m. Parking for the event is located in Lot D, at the corner of Laburnum and Carolina Avenues, and can be accessed through Gates 4 and 6 on Laburnum Avenue. Parking is $10 with lots opening at 5 p.m.
Richmond Raceway and Virginia Credit Union, a financial cooperative serving more than 265,000 members, agreed to a multi-year naming rights agreement for the region’s premier outdoor music venue earlier this year. The iconic 6,000 seat amphitheater was renamed Virginia Credit Union LIVE! with a new brand identity.
Virginia Credit Union LIVE! continues to bring top musical acts and superior concert experiences to music fans in the Richmond region. The venue has hosted top national recording artists such as Aerosmith, Sting, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews Band, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams, Jr., and Florida Georgia Line.
The venue hosts six permanent private dressing rooms with restrooms and showers attached to the stage as well as two loading docks. There is a separate hospitality building providing a full menu of food and beverage amenities. The backstage area is completely secured with ample room for parking large vehicles and tour buses.
