Tea For One Live Performance


Recommended Posts

I tried to search the forum, but I didn't get any hits searching for the words Tea For One, since they are shorter than 4 letters, apparently, and I can't be assed searching 20 pages. Anyway, I'm looking for information on live performances of this song. Share all the information you have (Dates, Locations ETC). Feel free to share your opinion of the song, too!

Page and Plant played it in Japan a few times in 98. And Page sometimes put it in his 77 versions of Since I've Been Loving You. It's one of my favorite Zeppelin songs ever.

You wouldn't happen to know if any recordings exist? Are they any good? It's one of my favourites too, that's why I asked you people to share your opinion. Plant's sining is great on this one

The few from Japan do. Just look for Page/Plant in Japan in 98 and you'll find one.

Page & Plant played Since I've Been Loving You / Tea For One at Poole Arts Centre on July 16th 1995.

This is my home town, so it was good to get home from a gig in a few minutes (rather than a few hours, like all the other shows I saw on the tour). :D

Indeed! This was the only '95 UK tour date I was unable to attend. I do have an audience recording of this show that is quite good:

July 16th 1995 Poole, England - Poole Arts Centre

1. Egyptian Intro 2. Thank You 3. Bring It On Home 4. Whole Lotta Love 5. No Quarter 6. Gallows Pole 7. Hurdy Gurdy solo 8. Yallah 9. Since I've Been Loving You/Tea For One 10. The Song Remains The Same 11. Dancing Days 12. Four Sticks 13. Kashmir 14. Black Dog 15. In The Evening/Carouselambra

One of the performances at Budokan Hall (forgot what night it was, but it's on Stage 6) was pretty funny, as they really screwed up the intro and had to start the whole song over. Anybody know which night it was?

"This is the rehearsal!" - Plant

Going from memory it was the first attempt on Feb 8th. It got progessively smoother

over the next three shows.

My favourite LZ song has changed over the years but TFO held the honour for a while.

It's a similar slow blues to SIBLY and I guess that's the reason they never played it live. As Mr Plant said at The O2 there are some songs they just have to play and SIBLY would be one of them.

What a beautiful song. They also played it on February 13 at the Budokan, Tokyo.

I uploaded the whole clip (from yet another wonderful 3d eye dvd) at the following adress : http://www.dailymotion.com/JoeCh1p/video/7589311

My favourite version ever was played 2 days later in Osaka. It almost brings me to tears everytime I listen to it.

Thanks for the upload! :)

Edit: I wrote that before I watched it... That was beautiful. Both Plant and Page performed brilliantly. The strings also go very well with this song. This made my day:)
