Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant at the Secret Solstice Festival 2019 in Iceland on June 23rd. During his set he performed the Zeppelin classic "Immigrant Song". It was the first time Plant has performed the song since hitting the stage with Jimmy Page in Tokyo in February 1996 according to Led Zeppelin News.
"Plant’s performance of the song to close his festival set in Iceland was fitting as the song was inspired by Led Zeppelin’s visit to Reykjavík, Iceland in 1970."
According to Led Zeppelin News, Robert Plant will perform a series of shows in Ireland and Northern Ireland in July with his new band, Saving Grace.
Plant has kept this new musical project low-key. None of the dates have been officially announced through Plant’s website or social media profiles.
Here are the confirmed dates:
18 - Galway International Arts Festival
19 - Waterford, Ireland
21 - Kilkenny, Ireland
