This past Tuesday night, Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant was the guest of violinist Nigel Kennedy at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Plant came on stage to sing on a cover of “Hey Joe” and Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir.” Robert hadn’t sung “Kashmir” in public since Led Zeppelin’s one-and-done 2007 reunion show at 02 Arena in London. Audio of “Kashmir” has surfaced and can be streamed below:
Nigel Kennedy’s version of “Kashmir” featuring Robert Plant spanned approximately 10 minutes and included wild voicings from the Led Zeppelin frontman and a unique arrangement. The file above also has Robert’s introduction in which he discussed meeting Nigel 25 years ago. Rolling Stone notes Plant had never performed “Kashmir” without Jimmy Page prior to Tuesday night.
