This from Bret Tobalske
The band was in fine form, and the audience provided a warm reception for the all the new songs and the reworked versions of the Zep tunes. The setting was the Schnitzer auditorium, which is spectacularly ornate inside. The acoustics were excellent overall, but there were periodic flare-ups of feedback seemingly from the vocal microphones. The band made spectacular use of a variety of North African percussion instruments including a doumbek, and the keyboards provided a rich bed of tones ranging from exotic “eastern” through to the near side of electronica & industrial.

I was particularly impressed with Robert’s singing, quite inspirational it was, and rhythmic sway of the music.
