Robert Plant performed ‘Immigrant Song’ for the first time since 1996

(YouTube/PBS NewsHour)

Robert Plant performed “Immigrant Song” at the Secret Solstice music festival in Iceland on June 23 – which appears to be the first time he’s performed it live since February 9, 1996 with Jimmy Page in Tokyo, Japan.

You can see the performance below:

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.

    For someone who doesn’t want to become a jukebox he sure seems to fall back on what buttered his bread. Have seen Plant a half a dozen times in the last 10yrs and what really gets the crowd on their feet is when he becomes a jukebox. Nothing against his new music and I’m still a huge fan!

  3. I was fortunate to grow up in the 70s and saw Led Zeppelin several times as well as Robert Plant solo since then. There is so much raw energy in that song I feel a bit let down to see it done today. I think maybe he stick with songs along the lines of That’s The Way, Thank you, or Tangerine.

  4. No matter the issues that keep Led Zepelin apart, Robert Plant is still rocking.

  5. Why didn’t he sing the first two lines? Come from the land of the ….etc…. I don’t get it. Forgot? Wow….

  6. Why bothet

    You seem to have forgotten the reunions concert 02 arena. The immigrant song was definitely on that play list with Jason on the drums.

    Sad to say but as Icelandic fishing folk will not doubt know, this really was a load of ‘cods wallop’. Leave it out Robert,nobody’s fault but yours.
