Robert Plant pulled out an old classic at the end of his headlining set at the Secret Solstice festival in Iceland last weekend. He performed Led Zeppelin favorite, “Immigrant Song,” which he last sang on February 9, 1996 during a tour with Jimmy Page.  

“We went to Iceland, and it made you think of Vikings and big ships. And bang, there it was –‘ Immigrant Song!’” Plant said of the 1970 tune at the time. "We come from the land of the ice and snow/From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow," the lyrics fittingly read.

The song was the lead single from Led Zeppelin III. Watch the 2019 performance below.
