VIDEO: Robert Plant performs blues classic at Bonnaroo

Robert Plant is sharing footage of his performance of “Fixin To Die” at the Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival in Tennessee on June 14.

A version of the vintage 1940 blues track – originally written and recorded by Bukka White – appeared on Plant’s 2002 album, “Dreamland.”

The Bonnaroo stop was one of the final dates on the singer’s spring North American tour in support of “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar”, a trek that saw Plant postpone three concerts – in Detroit, Toronto and Chicago – due to laryngitis.

The shows have been rescheduled and added to a series of dates Plant will perform in North America in September.

The singer will begin a European tour in Gloucestershire, UK on July 10.
