"The show, entitled Robert Plant Presents Sensational Space Shifters, will be his first with his new band, ahead of a busy summer festival schedule."
Since Zeppelin drummer John Bonham's death in 1980, the enigmatic singer has recorded many solo albums and collaborated with a host of colourful accomplices.
He and guitarist Jimmy Page renewed their long-time partnership in 1995 for four years to create the No Quarter project, and Plant has also more recently worked with folk singer Alison Krauss.
Tickets for the gig go on sale on Friday for £35 per head and are limited to four per person. To buy, call 01452 503050 or visit www.gloucesterguildhall.co.uk.
