    I stand corrected on my earlier post about the Pittsburgh show, the opening number was “Gallows Pole” not “Hangman”, that’s a word game I used to play many years ago. Also, “Ramble On” was performed, over seven minutes and nicely done. I still don’t remember “Silver Rider” being performed as mentioned by a local reporter. I think “Monkey” was the first encore followed by “Rock-n-Roll” and finally, “Goodnight”. One more, “Twelve Gates to The City” was enhanced with a verse from “In my time of Dying”.

    I had the privilege of seeing Robert and Band of Joy last night (1/19/11) in Pittsburgh. Show opened with a find rendition of Hangman followed by Can’t Buy Me Love. Houses of the Holy, Tangerine and Rock-n-Roll were the other Led Zep tunes performed and quit well I may I say. Band of Joy performers were wonderful. Buddy had a little trouble on Monkey but all in all a fine show. I don’t recall them performing Silver Rider, I was looking forward to hearing that one. I like this music, good stuff. Show only lasted about an hour and 40 min. and left me wanting more.
    One bad thing; the venue, Peterson Event Center at the University of Pittsburgh, was too big. I would estimate the capacity of the arena at 10,000 seats and there were only about 3,000 in attendance. For the type of music and fan base Robert has now, his tour management should be booking him in smaller venues with in close proximity to fine dining and drinking establishments. I see he is appearing in April at the Hollywood Florida Hard Rock, that’s the kind of place to see him. Hope Robert swings back around to the Midwest this summer.
    More later I’m sure
