This concert premieres on PBS June 29,2006 (check local listings)

For almost three decades and counting, Robert Plant has rocked the world with his distinctive vocals that defined the heavy metal style for which all singers in the genre hope to emulate. Whether it was fronting the legendary group Led Zeppelin to his critically acclaimed solo work, Plant will remain a permanent and welcome fixture in rock ‘n’ roll. Along with other legendary groups of the era, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Robert Plant are synonymous with Classic Rock.

His Soundstage performance is a must-see for longtime and novice fans of rock ‘n’ roll alike. The retrospective set includes Zep classics like opener “No Quarter,” which receives a more tribal treatment, a funkified “Black Dog” and “Four Sticks,” which is dedicated to former Zep drummer John Bonham, who passed away in 1980. Other gems include songs from Plant’s solo albums, like the political “Freedom Fries” and the cover of “Hey Joe,” which was immortalized by Jimi Hendrix. The show’s finale, a stretched-out bluesy rendition of “Whole Lotta Love” is not to be missed.
