Concert description

A riotous show in front of a sleepy crowd! Jimmy is blazing throughout the whole show and the band is just relentless in their brilliant playing. Robert's voice is awesome, and the emotion and range he expresses with it is truly amazing. In an attempt to enliven a "dishonorably quiet" audience, the band plays a few cover tunes. Please Please Me and From Me To You consists of only 30 seconds of each song. Page quietly strums a few bars of an unfamiliar melody that Plant faintly starts its lyrics to before abandoning it as soon as he starts singing and doing We Shall Overcome instead. Two minutes of Down By The Riverside excites the audience the most. A cut after Down By The Riverside may have contained more cover tunes. Something different finishes right before What Is And What Should Never Be. The medley is bedlam and the excellent and obscure encores include a long version of Communication Breakdown. Plant introduces Phil Carson on bass and Clive Coulson on vocals after C'mon Everybody. Certainly sounds like Plant singing C'mon Everybody. Perhaps Plant sang offstage while Clive Coulson impersonated him on stage as a joke!
