VIDEO: Robert Plant updates Led Zeppelin classics at Bonnaroo

Robert Plant is sharing footage of his performance of updated versions of a pair of Led Zeppelin classics at the recent Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival in Tennessee.

On the road in support of “lullaby and...The Ceaseless Roar”, Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters reworked Zeppelin’s “Rock And Roll” and paired together Howlin' Wolf's "No Place to Go" with his former band’s "Dazed And Confused."

The singer’s 11-song set also delivered “The Wanton Song”, “Black Dog”, “Going To California” and “Whole Lotta Love.”

Plant’s June 14 show at Bonnaroo was his latest performance at the festival following a solo appearance in 2011 and a 2008 pairing with Alison Krauss.

Earlier this month, the singer was forced to postpone three shows – 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.
