Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant surprises fans with performance at Scottish bar

Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant surprised patrons of a Scottish bar on Tuesday by casually showing up and performing at the pub’s open-mic event.

The “Immigrant Song” singer had performed with his band, Saving Grace, at a local theater in Aberdeen, Scotland, before heading to the pub.

The bar, Under the Hammer, wrote enthusiastically about the unexpected encounter on Facebook.

“It doesn’t happen very often that we get a visit from the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer and CBE, but last night we were honored by the presence of ROBERT PLANT of Led Zeppelin!” the company wrote in a Facebook post.

“Robert and his new bandmates joined us after their ‘Saving Grace’ concert at Tivoli and got involved in our open mic session, delivering their song ‘I bid you goodnight’.” the post added. “WHAT A NIGHT!”

According to the host of the open-mic event, the rock star was considerate and listened to other artists before taking the stage.

“He arrived about an hour before the end, and he didn’t just come and do everything for him,” Jamie Rodden said, according to the BBC. “He actually certainly listened to the people who were playing as well.”

Robert Plant played with Led Zeppelin from 1968 to 1980, alongside drummer John Bonham, guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones. The band disbanded in 1980 after Bonham died of an alcohol overdose.

Bassist John Paul Jones, vocalist Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page were seen performing with Led Zeppelin in the 1970s.

The band’s best-loved song, “Stairway to Heaven”, was the subject of a legal battle with an American rock band called Spirit, who claimed that Page and Plant stole one of their riffs. The group won its copyright infringement battle in 2020, saving Plant and Page millions of dollars in damages.
