Led Zeppelin: Classic Footage of "Kashmir" Live in Knebworth ´79 Surfaces

Classic footage of Led Zeppelin, performing their track "Kashmir" in Knebworth, England in 1979 has been posted on YouTube. Check out the footage below.

The grounds of Knebworth House near the village of Knebworth had been a major venue for opan air rock concerts since 1974. In 1979, veteran promoter Freddy Bannister booked Led Zeppelin to play that year's concerts, which took place on 4th August and 11th August.
The band had not performed live for two years since the death of  Robert Plant´s son during the band's 1977 North American tour, and they had not performed in the UK for four years. Led Zeppelin's manager, Peter Grant, decided that the band should perform at Knebworth instead of embarking on a lengthy tour.
