The November 16 performance also saw the launch of Plant’s new line of tour merchandise. The collection of items is available to see and purchase online. Many of the items include Plant’s feather symbol, which was first used on the packaging for Led Zeppelin’s untitled 1971 release.
This grey “retrographic” T-shirt includes Plant’s feather symbol, as well as a silhouette of Plant performing with Led Zeppelin:
Plant’s online store also lists a metal feather keyring:

Plant is also selling an art print that’s only available from the merchandise stall at his run of 15 UK and Ireland shows. Plant said on Twitter that the print is by Welsh artist Richey Beckett:
he sucks without JIMMY AND JOHN PAUL JONES
Rubbish the mans brilliant
I had the opportunity to see him again. I passed it up. I will always love Percy for what he was, but cannot listen to his new cd. It totally sucks! I think it’s time for Percy to retire. I love you Percy, but give it up. ❤️ A very dedicated fan from 1969, I will listen to what made you famous. It’s over now…

All you Led Zeppelin Stuck dead heads can stay Right where your stuck. Roberts new Album is riveting, flavorful Emotional, heart felt, dreamy, gorgeous. Non of you can’t cut his Spirit down or kill his Passion for what he was born to do. As ‘Robert Plant’ he as a Solo Artist has Recognitions with Awards don’t forget that. Get a life of your own.
If fans want to pay to see “Deliverance” versions of Plant/Zep songs, so be it.
I just don’t see much intensity in the videos, on His part. He doesn’t want to be Percy at all anymore. So, we get what we get. I’ll pass on this time around!
Carry on Robert, amazing as ever !!
