Led Zeppelin Rock London
by Tim Cashmere - December 11 2007
The much publicised Led Zeppelin reunion show took place in London last night, with all reports saying this show not only lived up to expectations, but blew them out of the water.
The band looked happy on stage and were playing tighter than anyone could've expected, suggesting Page was right when he earlier quipped that they were actually going to be prepared for this show (as opposed to the only other two shows they've played since the death of John Bonham).
The show, which was a tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, was acknowledged in a blissful "Ahmet, we did it" after their epic 'Stairway To Heaven'.
I wonder what Hard-Fi's Steve Kemp would've thought?
The complete set list for Led Zeppelin at London's O2 Arena on December 10 was:
Good Times Bad Times
In My Time Of Dying
For Your Life
Trampled Under Foot
Nobody's Fault But Mine
Since I've Been Loving You
Dazed And Confused
Stairway To Heaven
The Song Remains The Same
Misty Mountain Hop
Whole Lotta Love
Rock And Roll
(As was expected :) when you're that great! So glad the show went off well, now we need a DVD pronto for us shmucks that weren't lucky to be there! Oooh but to have been there! Hope there's a tour next year too and that the lads remember us in the US)
