A fun, celebration of a night, Robert remarked on a number of occasions that this was the 76th and final night for now. The crowd was better than the first night which Robert appreciated - he even remarked "Last night we played to your mums and dads!!"
Plant was in superb form - many songs carried extra embellishments. This was the best I've seen him on this tour and surpasses the late 70/80's. Page was also superb - another guy who has been rejuvenated by this tour. Again "Battle Of Evermore" was superb - this version was the best with Najma, now confident after a few gigs practice, pushing her phrasing around and delivering excellent vocal assistance to what is an excellent song.
From my vantage point I could see friends (wives?) of the pharaohs dancing to "Friends"
Michael Lee was the introduced with the usual occult bookshop piss-take. (Poor Man!)
At the end Robert thanked Bill Curbishly and Peter Grant, who could be seen signing autographs by the mixing desk. The thank you was understandably long on the last night (lighting, tea-boy etc.) but hinted at more collaboration together. Plant also thanked Radio 1FM - whether for the Glastonbury broadcast or something else remains to be seen.
Linwood's Tales From The Video
Quality of the picture is pretty good for bootleg videos. This is an audience effort shot from up on the right hand side. The cameraman alternates between the stage action (which is well shot) and the video screen. This is still probably one of the better videos out there. Some nice moments, such as the Tambourine which rolls past Nigel Eaton during his solo (wonder who threw that!). This excellently captures the atmosphere and the fun of the last night of the tour. Worth downloading!
