In capping this year’s Memorial Day Weekend line up, we scored a coup said Marney Smith, director of the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Seriously, we have Robert Plant coming to Bend… “So that’s The Decemberists on Friday, Ryan Adams on Saturday, take Sunday off, and then Robert Plant on Monday (Memorial Day),” she added in a note announcing the weekend Bend,Oregon concerts.
This show is Robert Plant’s only Bend, Oregon concert and marks his first Oregon show since his triumphant return to the stage at Portland’s Waterfront Bluesfest in 2013. “Plus, this is only his fifth Oregon show since in the last 14 years,” added Smith. “To say this show is a rarity is an understatement!”
Robert Plant isn’t the only coup for the popular amphitheater. Last year’s concert lineup numbered only seven performances (including the only Oregon performance for Ringo) but this summer you’ll see several more lineups.
