RNR News and Notes

When you're playing a show in the land of ice and snow - you might as well perform the song that was inspired by it ... right ?  Maybe? 

 

Robert Plant recently perfromed with his new band  - The Sensational Space Shifters - at the Secret Solstice Festival in Iceland - and decided to take a crack at performing Immigrant Song - a track Led Zeppelin released 49 years ago... this was also the first time Plant performed the song live in 23 years... 

 

The opening “ah-ahs” were a little lacking - but he recouped on the higher notes on the song’s bridge ... 

 

Plant wrote  the song back in 1970 with former bandmate - Jimmy Page - when the band toured Iceland in 1970... Plant thanked the country for its inspiration at the end of the show. “Thank you culture, way back, for the inspiration”
