Plant sang the soaring Led Zeppelin III classic at Iceland’s Summer Solstice Festival recently, even if it was an abbreviated version.

“Immigrant Song” was written after the band made a stop in Iceland in 1970, and the track includes all the appropriate imagery.

“We’ll drive our ships to new lands, to fight the horde, and sing and cry: Valhalla, I am coming!”

According to ledzepnews.com, it was the first time Plant performed the song since a 1996 gig with Jimmy Page in Japan.
