Concert description

A rather fast-feeling concert, but played brilliantly, with a really nice level of intimacy reached in the acoustic segment. Black Dog and Heartbreaker are great and Robert's voice is excellent, especially of Since I've Been Loving You and the rather short and compact yet brilliant rock medley. During Communication Breakdow some audience members are climbed the stage so the band stopped the song for a while and Plant said: "Whoa, you must stop it! Please do not come on the stage. Stay here and be cool. Please sit down. Sit on the floor mate!" A nice show that was a benefit for the people of Hiroshima.
