- Robert Plant made history on March 14th, 2017 when he performed his first solo rendition of Led Zeppelin‘s “Kashmir.“
- Plant and two members of his solo band Sensational Space Shifters — Justin Adams and John Baggott — joined renowned violinist Nigel Kennedy and his band at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the 1975 Physical Graffiti classic — along with a version of the standard, “Hey Joe,” globally known from Jimi Hendrix‘s legendary take, which has long been part of Plant’s solo repertoire.
