Hi,

Some more videos from last night. Where I was, there appeared to be some security staff trying to find people using cameras so they're not the best quality since I didn't want to make too obvious

Black Country Woman

When the levee breaks

Fortune Teller

Battle of Evermore (audio + slideshow)

Overall the gig was great. Alison's and Plant's voice complemented each other so well and the band were really tight. The highlights were Alison signing 'Down to the River to Play' and obviously the Zep stuff. 'Battle' and 'Black Country Woman' were amazing, more so, since I'm not the biggest fan of the Zep version of 'Black Country Woman'.

Although I like the album, and I loved Alison's voice on the 'O'Brother' album, I'm not a fan of the way country singers sing. When Alison was singing with Robert, she showed incredible control of tone and they complemented each other really well. But I have to admit I switched off during her sections, some of it was just too 'country' for my tastes, which was a really pity.

Was a really great night, beat my expectations by a long way. Top marks to Robert for letting all the band shine and Alison's voice was fantastic.

I have posted some pics here http://www.team-skinny-racing.com also have some vid clips but need to make them YouTubeable size so will post later.

Cheers

Warby

I enjoyed the show. A good end to the European leg of the tour. Black Country woman, Battle Of Evermore and Nuthin' the highlights again for me. The band are really tight with excellent musicianship throughout.

That's my Plant/Krauss concerts done. 4 shows ( Birmingham, Manchester, Paris and Wembley) in 2 weeks has been a good return for me.

I have met up with numersous people from this and other sites in the past couple weeks and my thanks go to them for making the whole experience more enjoyable. I was up till nealry 3am this moring in the Wembley hotel bar.

We started off seated but got 'moved' by the stewards - very, very long story :ph34r: We ended up next to the stage. Hangman was the one who shouted out "I love you Robert" - he even got a mention in the London Evening Standard. :lol: Very good show.

Hangman
"I love you Robert!"........

Robert

I liked Roberts opening words.....

"Hello..Welcome to ...eh...I dont know what it is ...but youre welcome to it!" ha ha

Hi:

The pics are great....

Yes I do see Phil's likeness to Uncle Fester...Ah....they don't make shows like The Adams Family anymore

Juliet

PS Now here's an idea..do a movie of The Adams Family starring Phil as Uncle Fester, Alison as Morticia and Robert as Gomez....T-Bone can be Lurch..now we just need a Cousin It...

Paul, this time I don't envy you for all those concerts, but I'm deadly jealous you met all those fantstic people. I wish I were there too.

Yes, there are some great people out there in the Zeppelin community. :thumbsup:

Good grief! Was that really him? It rang out loud and clear!

I enjoyed meeting everyone too;pity I had to get back into town before the last tube went.

Robert's singing mind-blowing.
