ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., July 8 (UPI) -- The London bombing victims were on the mind of former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant Thursday.

Performing at the Meadow Brook Music Festival in the Detroit suburb of Rochester Hills, Plant paid tribute to his countrymen with an acoustic version Led Zep's plaintive "That's The Way," telling the crowd, "We send this song back to our brothers in England. It was a song that was born on the side of a hill ... It's a folk song."

Plant is on a North American tour with his band, the Strange Sensation, to support their new album, "Mighty Rearranger."
