Jimmy Page has just added a new story to his classic “OnThisDay” series with a new post he shared through his social media accounts and recalled the first date of the North American tour he played with Robert Plant, known as the lead singer/lyricist of Led Zeppelin.
In the social media post he sent to his fans, Jimmy Page was taking fans back to their 1998 show, which held at Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola on May 19. During the show, they played many great songs including The Wanton Song, Heartbreaker, No Quarter, Tangerine, Burning Up, Walking Into Clarksdale, and many more.
When he talks on the shows, Jimmy Page revealed who joined them and which instrument they played with them during the show.
Jimmy Page described those days as follows: “On this day in 1998, I played at Pensacola, FL with Robert Plant. This was the first date of the Page and Plant North American tour and the personnel for this tour were me on guitar, Robert (vocals), Charlie Jones (bass), Phil Andrews (keyboards and cuisine) and Michael Lee on drums.
“With a stripped-down line-up as used on the ‘Walking into Clarksdale’ album, it gave us more freedom to explore and re-work the songs, wIthout the orchestra and supplementary musicians of the 1995 Unledded Tour.”
Many fans thanked Jimmy Page for reminding fans of those rare-known stories. Also, some of them gave advice to them and asked him that why don’t they do a Zeppelin reunion show to benefit COVID.
