VIDEO: Robert Plant performs Immigrant Song for first time in two decades

Robert Plant performed the 1970 Led Zeppelin classic, "Immigrant Song", for the first time in two decades during a June 23 appearance at the Secret Solstice festival in Reykjavík, Iceland.

According to, the rocker last delivered the opening track from his former group’s third album as a solo artist in 1991 and alongside bandmate Jimmy Page in 1996.

Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters headlined the closing night of the event in Iceland, where the singer was inspired to write the lyrics to “Immigrant Song” during a 1970 visit by Led Zeppelin to the island in the North Atlantic.

The festival showcases both established artists as well as up-and-coming talent over the course of three days in the 24 hour midnight sun during the summer solstice.

Plant will wrap up a European tour this week and return to live action when he launches a fall tour of North America at the Harvest Jazz And Blues Festival in Fredericton, New Brunswick on September 13.
