Set-List thanks to &>

The show started promptly at 10 pm. Around 1,500 guests. Admission was slow, it took approximately 1 hr to let everone in. We missed the first few minutes of the opening number, Zooma. Many young headbangers in the audience. Crowd was rather mellow. We could basically walk up to within 5 ft of the stage at any time. Sound was B+. No too loud. Show ended at 12:40 (less 10 minute break & 5 minutes of tech problems), the latter clearly bothered JPJ. The highlight was clearly Nobodys Fault But Mine followed by When the Levee Breaks and Black dog ( the lyrics played on the steel was impressive.) Zooma & No Quarter also came off well. Trampled Underfoot & Going to California came up short. JPJ really enjoyed playing the steel. He appeared to be having more fun with the steel over the other instruments. The drummer, played well but lacked the heavy hands I’m accustomed to hearing. Nick Beggs (as at previous shows) played the stick and wore a kilt and seemed to be enjoying himself. Band was basically tight, only a few minor miscues. Jones’s influence on zep was evident. As an obsessed fan, I throughly enjoyed the show, however, many non serious fans seemed bored at times. The void of lyrics was too potent. Knowing this, we still could not miss the opportunity to see the show. We hoped to meet Mr. Jones, but missed out. Will try again sat in Tampa.
