Since the demise of Led Zeppelin following the death of John Bonham in 1980, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant collaborations have been rare.

Led Zeppelin’s last show with Bonham was 7 July 1980 in Berlin. John died on 25 September 1980 at age 32. Led Zeppelin did not appear again until Live Aid in 1985 then the Atlantic 40th anniversary concert in 1988. There has also been a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performance for the induction of 1995 and finally the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert in 2007.

Page & Plant toured together in the mid 1990s and did come to Australia in 1996. They were amazing gigs of mostly Led Zeppelin songs.

History:
Robert Plant was the lead vocalist and Jimmy Page the guitarist for the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin. Their collaboration in Led Zeppelin produced some of the most iconic and influential rock music of the 1970s.

Plant and Page reunited for a collaborative project titled “Unledded” in 1994. This project included an MTV Unplugged session and a live album called “No Quarter: Jimmy Page and Robert Plant Unledded.” The duo explored acoustic arrangements of Led Zeppelin classics, as well as new material.

Following the success of the “Unledded” project, Plant and Page embarked on a world tour in 1995. The tour featured a mix of acoustic and electric performances, blending Led Zeppelin classics with their new collaborative work. It marked a significant reunion for fans of Led Zeppelin.

The “Unledded” project and subsequent tour received critical acclaim, and the live album “No Quarter” won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal for the track “Most High.”

While the collaboration between Robert Plant and Jimmy Page outside of Led Zeppelin has been sporadic, their partnership in projects like “Unledded” and the subsequent tour demonstrated the enduring chemistry between two of rock music’s most legendary figures.

‘Zeppelin Unledded: The Page & Plant Years’ kicks off February 2, 2024 with Melbourne dates starting in Nunawading.
