Robert Plant and Alison Krauss perform Led Zeppelin classic at Glastonbury

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss performed the Led Zeppelin classic, “When The Levee Breaks”, during a June 24 appearance at the UK’s Glastonbury Festival.

The BBC are streaming live video footage of the duo’s version of the closing track from 1971’s “Led Zeppelin IV”, which also served as the final tune in their 12-song set.

The pair were on hand to promote their 2021 album, “Raise The Roof”, which was produced by T-Bone Burnett and features new recordings of songs by legends and unsung heroes including Merle Haggard, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch and more.

The project debuted at No. 7 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release last November.

Plant and Krauss will next be seen at the Roskilde Festival on June 29 as part of a summer series of shows across Europe, which is set to wrap up July 20 in Berlin, Germany.
