Puncturing the zeppelin-sized dreams of nostalgic rockers hoping for a 2018 reunion with former bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, singer Robert Plant on Tuesday announced a solo tour, which will stop at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on March 2.
The waxing millions might want to get over it already, at least based on the new recording Plant just issued. Called "Bluebirds Over the Mountain," it finds the former Led Zeppelin frontman teaming with the Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde for a mesmerizing five-minute workout.
The song is the most recent teaser from Plant's forthcoming album, "Carry Fire," which is set arrive via Nonesuch Records on Oct. 13. Produced by Plant in western England, his 11th solo album features backing by his band, the Sensational Space Shifters. That same unit will tour with him.

On "Late Night," Seth Meyer dedicated his "A Closer Look" segment to dissecting Trump's comments in Alabama and the ensuing fallout, airing a news clip in which the anchor mentioned that the footage might contain inappropriate language for younger viewers.
The truth? I followed a boyfriend. I was in college, and the boy I was in love with at the time -- who was a townie, not even from college; we had done some community theater together -- came up to New York to study acting. And I was like, 'Me, too!' That's how it all started. Now, I truly loved the theater, but it was all an accident, really.
The Latin Grammy Academy has announced the nominations for the 18th Latin Grammys, and to the surprise of few handicappers, the Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi's smash hit "Despacito" has snagged nods in the two top song categories, record of the year and song of the year.
Featuring Daddy Yankee, Fonsi's hit, which recently tied Mariah Carey's record streak of 16 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 100, will compete against a roster of talent both veteran and fresh, including Rubén Blades, Juanes, Natalia Lafourcade, ADG, Shakira and Mon Laferte.
Despite the massive crossover, "Despacito" isn't a lock for anything. The rapper Residente, best known as co-founder of the duo Calle 13, earned a field-leading nine nominations for work from his eponymous solo album. The swoon-worthy Colombian singer and songwriter Maluma, who in 2016 collaborated with artists including Ricky Martin and Shakira, earned seven nods.
Don Rickles, the late, great "Mr. Warmth," continues to entertain, despite his April death from kidney failure at age 90.
AARP Studios' digital series "Dinner With Don" debuted Monday on the organization's YouTube channel. The 13 episodes feature Rickles talking showbiz with some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Amy Poehler, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Billy Crystal, Judd Apatow, Snoop Dogg, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.
Filmed in his favorite restaurants around Los Angeles, the show began production in November 2016 and concluded in January, just three months before Rickles' death. AARP said the series was Rickles' final project.
After tackling topics such as Scientology, the early days of the oil business, gambling, Thomas Pynchon, porn and the entertainment world, director Paul Thomas Anderson recently took a breather to shoot a short performance piece with Los Angeles sister act Haim.
Set in a recording studio during different sessions with producer Ariel Rechtshaid, the 15-minute film "Valentine" spotlights Haim sisters Este, Danielle and Alana not as pop stars but as accomplished musicians at work.
As they perform three relationship songs from their recent album "Something to Tell You" -- "Right Now," "Nothing's Wrong" and the title track -- Anderson captures them maneuvering around the studio adding parts, working as a unit toward the songs' greater good.
Album rock's still not dead, at least not as long as Dave Grohl and his band Foo Fighters are dropping riffs and preaching hard-driving musical release.
Foo Fighters have banked the No. 1 album in the country for its newest release, "Concrete and Gold," according to Nielsen Music data released on Monday. The band's ninth studio effort is its second to hit the top; its 2011 album, "Wasting Light," also reigned.
The difference? "Concrete and Cold" sold about 127,000 album-equivalent units — a calculation based on streaming, downloads and physical sales — compared with 235,000 sold for "Wasting Light."
