Possibly the best night from four Chicago-based shows. The playing is hot here and seems that the band had leaved most of the problems that plagued them on all the previous night behind. Plant said near the beginning of the show about what happened to Pagey last night: "Jimmy was feeling ill last night, but it was only a false pregnancy, so that's alright ... Mr Page neither smokes, drinks, takes women or does anything like that so we want an apology tomorrow and a crate of alcohol!" said Robert according to the some local radio report last night. The beginning is blistering and In My Time Of Dying is very powerful and rather bombastic. No Quarter is another fine version but as always on this tour, Ten Years Gone is full of mistakes due to the fact that song was not too much rehearsed before the tour. Kashmir shines and is brutal and Achilles Last Stand forced the audience as well. This is the show where Page is captured wearing infamous storm trooper outfit.
