Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has been confirmed as one of the guests for ex Rolling Stone Bill Wyman’s 80th birthday show in London later this year.

The October 28 concert at the IndigO2 is part of this year’s three-day BluesFest event, with a lineup including Van Morrison, Walter Trout, Jeff Beck, Bad Company and Richie Sambora.

Wyman’s guests include Mark Knopfler, Mick Hucknall, Bob Geldof and Imelda May, with more to be revealed. The set will feature music that’s influenced Wyman throughout his career.

BluesFest boss Leo Green says: “This concert is shaping up to be one of the gigs of the year. The addition of Robert to an already monumental lineup is a clear indicator of the vast influence Bill has had on the music world.

“We’re delighted that he’s chosen to celebrate this milestone birthday with us. Who knows who else might turn up on the night to jump up on stage?”
