Robert Plant and Ringo Starr paid tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis, to mark his imminent 80th birthday at his show at the London Palladium on Sunday [September 6].
Lewis turns 80 on September 29.
He is currently on a ‘farewell’ tour of the UK: his final show takes place at the Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow, on September 10.
Starr and Plant wheeled a birthday cake onto the stage and joined a host of other musicians and fans in singing “Happy Birthday” to Lewis.
Starr later wrote on Twitter, “Had a great time at the Jerry Lee Lewis show in London happy birthday Jerry peace and love”.
Lewis released his last album, Rock & Roll Time, in 2014.
