Much has been written about this disastrous concert. This is the show where police tear-gassed the audience, causing the event to turn into a massive riot. Several people, including members of the band's entourage, were injured, and the stage itself was seemingly destroyed while the band locked up in their dressing room. Given the circumstances surrounding this event, it's hard to listen to the three tracks we have available and get past the impending doom. But the band are in good shape. Perhaps most notable is that this show is in that range of dates where Plant is still in the absolute height of his vocal abilities.
