Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant performs surprise open mic gig at Aberdeen pub

Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant made a surprise appearance at an Aberdeen pub’s open mic on Tuesday night.

The 74-year-old frontman and his Saving Grace bandmates popped in for a drink at Under the Hammer following their gig at Tivoli.

The group performed songs including Moby Grape’s ‘It’s A Beautiful Day Today’ and their song ‘I Bid You Goodnight.’

Under The Hammer shared a photo on social media, adding: “It doesn’t happen very often that we get a visit from Rock ‘n’ Roll hall of famer and CBE but last night we were honoured by a presence of Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant!

“Robert and his new band mates joined us after their ‘Saving Grace’ gig at Tivoli and got involved in on our open mic session, delivering their ‘I Bid You Goodnight’ song.”

Fans posted comments beneath a video of the open mic, describing Plant’s performance as “amazing” and “superb”.

Plant, along with Led Zeppelin bandmates Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham, sold more than 122 million albums worldwide.

One pubgoer commented: “That made many of the regular musicians very happy, and the audience too. What a privilege.”

Saving Grace was formed in 2019, with Plant performing alongside Suzi Dan, Oli Jefferson, Tony Kelsey and Matt Worley.

The five-piece are touring the UK and are set to play a sold-out show at the Perth Concert Hall on Wednesday evening.
