Review(s)
 
Just like the night before at the venue, the performance is again wonderful. Like every show on this tour, the highlight is the interaction between Page and Bonham. Since I've Been Loving You, Dazed And Confused, Whole Lotta Love ... And just like the night before, with Plant's renewed vocals, the ensemble is again in perfect synchronicity. But if any of the group could be given preference, amidst all of this excellence, perhaps the biggest star of the night is Bonham, who in particular gives no let up at this show. His playing is as spontaneous and as satisfying as it has been all tour. Thankfully, the rest of the band are right there with him. Everyone has room to breathe, and the songs are executed perfectly. Apart from Plant's complaints of not being able to hear his stage monitors, the show goes off without incident. Misty Mountain Hop gets Plant's: "This is a song about the English police, and a bad case of hashish." Just before Stairway To Heaven, Plant tells someone in the audience that they look like a "French Car Driver!" After the song, he makes a joke in French to the audience about being tired, to which they respond "No!". Whole Lotta Love starts with a nice improv'd jam from Page, with Bonham and Jones joining right in behind him. Bonham starts a fantastic stop-start funk beat to start off the theremin section, and as the band continues, Plant can be heard singing to the audience in French to calm down. The band give the audience a rare treat by including a performance of I'm Going Down just before the Boogie Chillun section.
