Review(s)
 
A very energetic and fiery show. The instrumental machine is on a roll and Robert' though careful with the range of his voice, is still extremely powerful and high. The crowd is noisy so it leaded Plant to the statement: "Every time we come to Manchester, there's a lot of people shouting out." Dazed And Confused is a slick and incredible version and Jimmy outplays himself in his solo from Since I've Been Loving You. The medley is very fast and spontaneous and there's a nice selection of encores, played with guts.
