I was there that day in the first row. I can be seen for about a second towards the end of the show. At the time, the concert was being streamed live which was quite interesting to do as broadband didn't really exist then. Great show too. I hope he gets out on the road in the US again soon.

It was quite amazing how john paul jones went from destroying rock music, to  soloing like jimmy page,  grooving  on keyboards, playing dinosaur rock,  destroying rock again and then finish the show with love grooves.

Was this show really webcast in year 2000? That's jumping the shark while the shark still swimming beyond the breakwater, if that's the case. Not surprised Jonesy would be the person leading the music delivery game at this point, but does anybody know more detail about this webcast?

The webcast was groundbreaking at the time, seventeen (!) years ago.  I dug up my old Electric Magic website archive from that time. Here's the announcement and banner ad I designed for the promotion:

Thanks Sam!  Bringing back some magical electric memories, Netscape 4.0, which, if I recall, was also $7.99 (per month) and I remember the hyphen in the url! I had just seen Jimmy and the Black Crowes, too, on June 29 (first show ever at the Marcus Amphitheatre in Milwaukee), but I know I didn't even bother to try to get JPJ's show over the landline.
