Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant continues his musical explorations, keeping his past largely on the shelf

NEW YORK — Robert Plant has a new solo album but he won't leave his Led Zeppelin legacy untouched during an upcoming, mostly sold-out theater tour of the U.S.

Says the singer: "I'll just tell 'em in a different way."

His album "Carry Fire," out Friday, continues his collaboration with a band whose name, the Sensational Space Shifters, speaks to its versatility.

But anyone going to see him live and expecting a jukebox of old hits has come to the wrong place.

If audience-members don't like the new groove, he says, "there's plenty of other things they can do. Bowling's a good one."
