Robert Plant stunned fans in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday night when he made a surprise appearance for a two hour performance with Guitar Lightnin’ Lee at a small club on Burgundy Street called BJ’s. Some fan videos have now emerged — and they’re nicely timed to get you warmed up for his show tonight in the Mahalia Jackson Theater.


As I previously reported, Robert Plant is currently on tour with Lil’ Band of Gold, hitting Texas, Louisiana, and Tennessee. I may have been just a tad catty in that report, because some fans want more Led Zeppelin and less Fats Domino from the music legend.


Offbeat reminded us at the time that Robert Plant had a history in New Orleans of appearing in some intimate venues and being spotted in popular music hang-outs like Tipitina’s and the Maple Leaf. So I feel like I for one have no one to blame but myself that I forgot to go out and check around to see if I could bump into Robert Plant in the days running up to his official appearance.

Fortunately, BJ’s allowed fans to take cell phone videos of the Robert Plant New Orleans surprise performance. The top video from Scott Gold is a brief teaser, and the bottom one from Lisa Latter is a longer excerpt.

In his YouTube post, Gold wrote:

“On July 15th, 2013, Robert Plant played an unannounced set with Guitar Lightnin’ Lee and his Thunder Band for lucky New Orleanians at BJs Lounge in the Bywater. It was a two-hour blues jam that included 12-bar and shuffle versions of ‘Black Dog,’ ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You,’ and more. It was amazing — a small sample here.”

While in town for a sold-out show at the Mahalia Jackson Theater this week, Robert Plant showed up to play an unannounced set at BJ's Bar - a tiny littler watering hole in the Bywater. About 75 Monday night BJ's patrons, some privy to the surprise and some not, got to enjoy a free, intimate show from the Led Zepplin legend. Ah, NOLA life! Thanks to Travis Cleaver for sending us his video clip from the night. Visit OffBeat.com for our staff member, Chris Peet's review.

Plant is the classiest act out there Pat. These folks got a rare treat.

I missed out on this show but I do have tics in front, row G for the Bryan Adams solo acoustic show at the Mahalia Jackson on the Aug 10th. It's what my wife wanted for her anniversery gift...25 years already??

Hi Pat!

I take it you have front row seat tickets to see your favorite legendary singer at this amazing local event? I'd be a bit shocked if you didn't. Hope you can at least catch a glimpse of Robert while performing or just visiting some other local sights of N'Orleans!

Nobody's fault but mine
It's nobody's fault but mine
Try to save my soul tonight
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Devil he told me to roll
Devil he told me to roll roll roll roll
How to roll the log tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

Brother he showed me the gong
Brother he showed me the ding dong ding dong
How to kick that gong to life
Oh, it's nobody's fault but mine

Got a monkey on my back
M-M-Monkey on my back back back back
Gonna change my ways tonight
Nobody's fault but mine

I will get down rollin' tonight
N-N-N-Nobody's fault.

One time love, take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, And if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, Sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite.

A man I know, went down to Louisiana,
had himself a bad, bad fight
And when the sun peeked through
John Cameron with Suzanna,
He kissed the whiskers, left & right
Whiskers!

Now, now, now, fright subsides
Out at a hotel in the quarter, our friends check in to pass the night
Now love gets hot, but fire preceded water
Poor whiskers set the room alight.
Whiskers!

Down on Bourbon street, You know it's right
You can see my friend, they run around all through the night
Most everywhere, Until the closet's bare
Run for the razor, Doin' up my hair

New Orleans queens, Sure know how to schmooze it
Maybe for some that seems alright
When I step out, strut down with my sugar
She'd best not talk like Barry White!

One time love, take care how you use it
Try to make it last all night, And if you take your pick
Be careful how you choose it, Sometimes its hard to feel it bite
Feel it bite.
