Review(s)
 
Two things plague the show: Robert's very weak voice and the out of control crowd. The band drops Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, and Moby Dick in efforts to calm the crowd. The band itself is playing really well, and Dazed And Confused is a great version. However, the crowd is out of control and the band punishes them with no encores, ending the show at slightly less than two hours. The crowd can't believe it, but that's what they get for not heeding the pleas of Robert when people are getting crushed in front. Robert even sings "Take it easy" in the middle of Dazed but to no avail. The show is played really well though.
