In 1992, they performed at the official opening of Disneyland Paris, where they were the only British band to perform.

The Firebirds also starred in the Memorial concert at the Colston Hall in Bristol to mark 40 years of Eddie Cochran's death in which Jim Plummer played the part of Eddie Cochran's last gig at the Bristol Hippodrome.
