Back In Through The Out Door

Some band named Led Zeppelin played a show last night. Perhaps you've heard of them? We weren't there (promoters wouldn't give us a credential), but Rolling Stone's David Fricke was. Same with Ben Ratliff of the New York Times and plenty of other scribes. And besides, with YouTube, you're always there. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive and one of the highest-grossing tours of all-time will almost certainly become a reality in 2008. (Rumors abound that they're already confirmed to play Bonnaroo.) Keep that in mind when figuring out how much to spend on holiday gifts this season. Here was the set list from last night's show:

"Good Times, Bad Times"
"Ramble On"
"Black Dog"
"In My Time of Dying"
"For Your Life"
"Trampled Under Foot"
"Nobody's Fault But Mine"
"No Quarter"
"Since I've Been Lovin' You"
"Dazed and Confused"
"Stairway To Heaven"
"The Song Remains the Same"
"Misty Mountain Hop"

"Whole Lotta Love"
"Rock and Roll"

YouTube clips ranging in quality from "very professional" to "dude with camera phone in the nosebleeds" are available for your viewing pleasure after the jump.

"Black Dog"

A surprise show at the 930 club would be pretty cool. It would help with their legacy.

If they do tour, I hope they don't feel obligated to play Dazed and Confused and Stairway to Heaven at every show, and I hope they keep Whole Lotta Love relatively short and tight. Those songs, along with the thankfully-absent Moby Dick, made the original Song Remains the Same live album difficult to enjoy. Ideally, I'd like to hear a concert with no song longer than 10 minutes. Wishful thinking, of course, since there's no guarantee they'll tour anymore.
