Review and Set-list from Nils Westerholt
“34 years and 2 months…34 years and 2 months…since the very first time I was here in Copenhagen with Led Zeppelin”, Robert started, after finishing Four Sticks. “It’s been quite a journey since then!” he added. And the Man sure was damned right. The concert took place in Vega, a former Union congress Hall, with 964 paying visitors, which meant an almost full floor. The Venue normally holds a maximum of 1,500 people including a balcony that was closed this night. A nice tight place. Robert and the band also seemed to like it. They looked and sounded very well going this evening, running through the well-known set-list from this tour’s British part.
My comments on the songs would be very similar to what have been described from earlier on this tour. And all in all a bit more up-tempo and electric/intense than we heard 1,5 years ago here in Copenhagen at the Strange Sensations only second show at all.
Highlights – at least to me – was Down To The Sea, working very intense and well, Tall Cool One, presented as an Elvis tribute (man, that guy would have been almost electrocuted by the way this song was performed!), BIGLY, with nice guitar playing from Skin on acoustic and Justin covering the electric parts, and…Whole Lotta Love! Believe it or not, although quite faithful to the original, it seemed that it is still possible for the band to go on even further with this song. Definite the highlight of the evening to the whole audience. Starting with some slow bluesy intro…and then Skin and Justin pulled out with double Gibson Les Paul – Placed on left and right side of the stage! Pure and raw power, building up to Robert’s incredible vocals.
A great night! Only a shame that we didn’t have Song To The Siren during the encores. And – personally I just can’t believe, that he has dropped Season Of The Witch on this tour…But anyway – A great night of Power and Glory and the Hammer of the God! (Photos might follow in a few days, I hope)
