Jimmy Page Taps The Black Crowes For Charity Gig

Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes will team up for a special one-off benefit concert being held at the Cafe du Paris in London on June 27.

Page personally asked the Crowes to serve as his backing group for the charity show, which will feature a mixture of both Page and Black Crowes songs as well as some cover tunes selected specifically for the event by Page and the Crowes’ Chris and Rich Robinson.

Proceeds from the show will be donated to the Action for Brazil’s Children’s Trust, a charity Page sponsors that provides aid to poor and underprivileged youths in the South American country.

The concert will be a reunion of sorts for the legendary Led Zeppelin axeman and the Southern trip-rock band, as the Black Crowes opened a string of dates on the Jimmy Page/Robert Plant No Quarter Tour back in 1995.

The Black Crowes have also demonstrated its familiarity with several songs from the Led Zeppelin repertoire recently, as the band incorporated snippets of “Dazed and Confused”
and “Whole Lotta Love” into its live set during the Crowes’ recent tour with Lenny Kravitz and Everlast.
