Review(s)
 
This is the first show of the second leg of the 1973 US Tour and a very rough performance for Robert's voice. At the start of the show it is completely gone and he cannot even hit his middle range. By the middle he warms up a bit but he is still rough and weak throughout. Also were there some PA problems as well as problems with fighting audience so Plant called them down several times during the show "I'd really be obliged if you could cool all that! There's no need to be fighting. I'm sure there's plenty of fights to watch outside ... There is some sensible reason why these people are doing this ... I have never seen so much leeriness and violence, so cool it! Can you dig that?" Plant blamed the audience several times during the show). The band, however, is tense and thus brutal in their readings while PA system is invalid at some points. Jimmy's soloing is out of this world and the rhythm section commands the long improvisations in Dazed And Confused. A very poor choice for an encore due to Robert's voice and overall, an uneven performance.
