Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has shared an unheard-of story in an Instagram post. 15 years after the disbandment of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant initiated their special World Tour. He shared tidbits in the captions.

#OnThisDay in 1995, I played the LA Forum with Robert Plant.

This is the first Page and Plant date of two at the Forum in LA on the ‘Spring in North America’ leg of the World Tour 1995. Augmented by the LA Philharmonic, we were set to introduce the audience to an array of musical colours that they had not previously experienced, with classically trained musicians providing an acoustic pad for our Egyptian string players to fly with excotic melody.



Fans responded and shared their memories about the tour:

I saw Page/Plant twice in Atlanta. I remember the second show opened with Wanton Song and never let up from there. Two of the best shows I’ve ever seen. We need more. C’mon Percy!

Another fan also commented:

My first concert ever was the 17th of May I was 16 and jimmy was amazing that night sibly was mind blowing an experience I will never forget watching my idol perform and play in person his magic can’t be explained it must be seen and felt. Love you jimmy.

More fans also share the experience with watching the band:

Yes!!! In vancouver, bc and to get the tickets…i slept in my 78 camaro… in the winter…so i could be in the lineup early the next morning. Cause back then that’s what you had to do…remember?! Haha! I kinda miss that actually…kinda. It added to the fun of it all.

Sure did! Bradly center in Milwaukee. I remember during the ‘spacy’ part of Whole Lotta Love feeling like I was on another planet somewhere between 1972 and Infinite. I had seen Robert several times, but I was only 5 years old when Bonzo passed. It was a dream come true seeing you that day, Jimmy.
