Robert Plant Busts Out ‘Hot Dog’ In Richmond


Vocalist Robert Plant is currently on the road for the latest North American leg of a tour in support of his Carry Fire album. Plant and his band The Sensational Space Shifters brought the run to Virginia Credit Union Live! At Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Virginia on Sunday, where they had a big surprise in store to begin their encore.

Robert Plant led his ensemble through “Hot Dog” to start Sunday’s encore. Plant hadn’t played the country-tinged song from Led Zeppelin’s 1979 album In Through The Out Door since January 28, 1994 as per Setlist.FM’s records. Guitarists Justin Adams and Liam Tyson, drummer Dave Smith, keyboardist John Baggott, fiddler Seth Lakeman and bassist Billy Fuller do a fine job of backing Plant on the long-lost gem.

The band went on to end the show in Richmond with a medley that incorporated parts of “Bring It On Home,” “Whole Lotta Love” and “Santianna.” Next up for Plant is a performance in New York City tonight.
