  1. that's lovely that they're starting to book dates. For whatever reason, when their 2015 tour wrapped i had this feeling that he was going to close the book on this band and move on to something new, as tends to be his custom once a band really really gets cookin, he tends to go off and do something else. So it's refreshing and delightful that he's keeping this crew together and going back out and hopefully doing some new stuff.
  2. i would guess audio only, no dvd ever of this just considering how much work went into just what was done for the led zeppelin dvd in 2003... like others have said, if i had to guess, i'd guess that he would compile and do a frankenstein of sorts of the "best of them all", or if we got lucky he'd just choose the best individual performances and let those run. Considering a near identical setlist all the nights, you pick the best of each, put it in, and let it go warts and all. Could be a lovely release and IMO the easiest call of the bunch, only because they have 5 nights that they could
  3. http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/robert-plant/2015/theatre-antique-de-fourviere-lyon-france-63f67667.html robert broke out custard pie????? hahah glad to see him increasingly breaking out the rockin' songs from the zeppelin repetoire, i like the move by the big guy that he's getting back into a more rockin' state of mind. kind of did the same thing with strange sensation in the time leading up to the zeppeling reunion....................................haha just trolling, i'm actually just glad that he continues to switch up and add songs and keep it fresh. the coolest part of all this,
  4. dramatically improved in the evening. everything sounds clearer, the bass just BOOMS and all those nonsense effects are off Robert Plant's voice. Imagine it really is just a different mix of the studio version we've always known, but good lawwwwd sounds so much better than what we've always had for a studio version. JPJ's bass just booming and great all over the place, i really like the runs he does just all over the place.
  5. see that would be quite interesting, the question then becomes does it become a CD/DVD package given they have video footage? We know the footage exists and have in fact SEEN a great deal of it, just depends on Page's outlook. Honestly though I wouldn't expect a box set, that's not how Pagey rolls, but rather a compilation that has every track performed in its running order (same setlist all 5 nights) with obviously whatever splices and changes page chooses to make to create a "best" version of any song. WE all know how he loves to pop in whatever makes the song sound optimal, see Stairway
  6. so trampled under foot has made its way into his set? they actually play it pretty straight up, and actually i quite enjoyed the breakdown bringing in juldeh for the solo there, it fit like a glove. very curious to see what zeppelin he keeps adding as as this touring has gone on the last few years he's progressively added more and more and more zeppelin songs playing them pretty straight across the board. Wanton is identical to zeppelin's version, trampled is the same just with juldeh soloing now......what is and what should never be, lemon song, honestly just glad the guy seems to
  7. Set so far on the stream.......... Wanton Song Turn It Up Black Dog Rainbow Yellow is the Colour (Donovan) snippet into Going To California (Justin Adams having all sorts of problems to start with having that mandolin in tune....) No Place to Go / Dazed and Confused Lemon Song (Robert teases how Jack White got him interested in playing the song again) LIttle Maggie Fixin To Die (they really really rocked it up, harder hitting than a lot of versions i'd heard before, crowd looked to eat it up) I Just Want To Make Love To You / You Need Love / Whole Lotta Love / Who Do You Love? / W
  8. was going to say, looks like it's a GO for today after a week of cancelled gigs.........already caught the mumford replay on Apple TV through the 60 inch TV......as long as you have a solid internet connection the stream comes through crystal clear and is absolutely beautiful and great audio quality as well. oh the perks of the modern world.............should be a fun show to check out tonight.
  9. i feel like i'll buy it, but i won't feel good about it. reason being that the companion disc is just a colossal letdown. I say colossal because really only 7 tracks? we all know there has to be some other working version of ten years gone, and of course Swan Song which we KNOW ABOUT. Least they let us have the alt in the light we've had for years in full quality, but still Jim 7 tracks for a 16 track album? I thought they'd found some "really cool stuff" but this to me just screams scraping the bottom of the barrel. If this is all you can get together for PG, then like the first reco
  10. Just join them crooked vultures and deactivate that band, do some zep tunes, it would be killer. Forget the other band members commitments, this would be huge
  11. http://www.tightbutloose.co.uk/tbl-news/led-zeppelin-iv-houses-of-the-holy-olympic-studios-playback-event-report-plus-exclusive-tbl-companion-disc-preview/ sorry sports fans, looks like it's pretty much just alternate mixes. No different guitar solo for stairway apparently......no quarter is an instrumental of the album version with different pieces missing, but not a change to the original tempo or anything like that. take some risks with the companion disks jimmy, it'd be nice.
  12. I mean, them crooked vultures had no trouble headlining fests around Europe, played high profile gigs all over the place, i would imagine it would be the same for page/jones/and lil bonzo.......people saying that it wouldn't be a HUGE draw are out of whack. Page is one of the MOST LEGENDARY guitar players on the planet and when zeppelin announced the O2 show, it was the most demanded ticket in history, you mean to tell me a tour with page/jones/and lil bonzo playing both new music as well as stuff like kashmir, rock n roll, black dog, and stairway wouldn't sell out arenas worldwide? I
  13. I honestly believe that Page thought by rehearsing new material with lil bonzo and jonesy and by bringing in singers to see if there was chemistry and letting all that leak out to the press was hoping to pressure Robert into signing up to get back on board with the band. I just don't think Page truly had the heart and guts as it were to strike out without Robert, to tour with lil bonzo, jonesy, and a new singer as a new project that sprinkled in zeppelin classics here and there. to anyone questioning whether or not this would be huge without plant, are you kidding me? The guys are legend
  14. Saw it via zeppelin news twitter handle.... Cool story, dude still sounds so nervous like page has the dogs of doom ready to sack him if he tells too much. Honestly of the crop of people who's names have been floated, he could have worked the best, young guy with great pipes and a ton of energy. What he said: Wasn't Gunna call it zeppelin, working title was something around calling it some kind of project Some killer tune existed with a classic page riff and jones on pedal steel Worked for a week and never heard back from them Jams were recorded with Myles on vocals, page expressl
  15. eh, not impressed with the alternate take on black dog...... mostly with the alt takes, it bothers me that the rhythm tracks are typically the same, with teh guitar and vox being different. Guess that's all they have, but it doesn't serve much value for me to have black dog with no guitar solo, the same rhythm section track, fewer guitars, and some random extra wailing out of plant... hey if that's all they've got, it's all they've got, that's life. hoping stairway's solo is something radically new....
