OK, so we were a little premature in saying Robert Plant isn't coming to Washington with JamBase Live this summer. His suddenly un-canceled gig has just been moved to a smaller venue.
The festival – sponsored by music site JamBase.com, and off to a rocky start - was originally booked for a two-night stand at George's Gorge Amphitheatre, on July 5 and 6. That plan got nixed and refunds have been issued; but today, promoter Live Nation announced that JamBase Live is back on at the cozier Chateau Ste Michele Winery in Woodinville.
Michael Franti & Spearhead will headline the July 5 show, which will start at 6 p.m. with support from Rodrigo y Gabriela and Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers. Plant's Sensational Space Shifters will headline the show scheduled for 5 p.m. on July 6, which will also feature Railroad Earth and Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers. Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. On May 31, with prices ranging from $45 to $65 for the July 5 show and $49.50 to $75 for July 6.
Chateau St Michelle has also added two more show: Natalie Maines will headline on July 22, and OneRepublic and Sara Bareilles will drop by on Sept. 2. Find a full season schedule and ticket info on the winery web site.
