In the states, Robert Plant was a guest and performer on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
On the show, Plant shared some tales from his legendary rock past. He included a tale about losing a karaoke battle in Hong Kong while visiting China with his son in 1996.
“I wanted to sing and I’d had too much to drink, so the options were ABBA … no … and Elvis, that was on the thing and I put my name down, and a bloke from Taiwan also put his name down for Elvis, so we were competing.

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters have extended their Carry Fire tour with a new run of North American shows.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview Plant was asked if he agreed with Gene Simmons that rock is dead,
‘I haven’t any idea of where rock begins and ends. Did it begin with Link Wray? Did it begin with Jackie Brenston’s “Rocket 88”? Did it end with Black Flag? I think it’s still here, it’s just morphing. And long may it morph.’
