Fan review: "Arrived late to find the hall choked, couldn't even find the bar for the crush. Then the Coventry ITA struck with a hoax call, warning of a bomb in the building. Zep stopped and the fans rushed for the exit. i rushed for the front of the stage. Bad move. When the crowds returned, found myself pinned to a bank of speakers. Suffered indescribable torment as the band powered through a two-hour plus set. Even the acoustic numbers were agony, thanks to the might of the P.A. Even today, the opening bars of Whole Lotta Love induce a mild epileptic fit. But I can't wait to see 'em again - I've already bought the ear drops." [B.C.]
