Review(s)
 
An exceptional show in front of a rude and downright scary crowd! There are some disturbing crowd comments and the general atmosphere is one that is way out of control. "Good evening. How have you been? I think we're gonna get a bit warm tonight!" said Plant at the beginning. The show itself is amazing; Jimmy is on fire, Robert's voice is unreal, Bonham is thunderous and Jones is aggressive and loud, and the real shining star of the show! There are brilliant improvisations that cannot be described in words, and in the middle of Thank You, the crowd charges the stage, prompting Robert (who sounds very scared) to stop the song and scream at the audience to move back: "You've gotta move back. Move back. Move back or we can't go on! Move right back! It's not fair to everybody else. Besides I'm scared of heights!" They do, and Thank You finishes with a great solo, and a fast Rock And Roll (unreleased and still called It's Been A Long Time) is played with a great solo, great high vocals (with Robert saying: "I gotta tell you, I can't hear a thing I'm saying. All the equipment's fallen out!"), but the last verse is skipped to get the group the hell off the stage.
