Thursday To-Do: Robert Plant

Posted By on Thu, Jul 15, 2010 at 10:59 AM


8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $55-$75.

Check out my Q&A with Plant here.

From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal's review of Tuesday's concert. Washboard!

Griffin took the spotlight for an impassioned, stomping reading of “Nobody’s Fault but Mine,” before the band segued into “Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down” which was delivered with an appropriate menace. A spirited romp of “Central Two 0 Nine” found Plant going native, strapping on a washboard and getting down to business.

Throughout the night, Plant’s pacing was perfect, as he moved the band seamlessly from familiar fare to new material, moody songs to spirited numbers.

A one-two punch of his solo hit “Tall Cool One” and the Zep favorite “Houses of the Holy” had the audience at fever pitch, and he continued to hold them rapt with cover of Townes Van Zandt “Harm’s Swift Way” and a powerful closing “Gallows Pole.”

Sounds like Zeppelin fans won't be disappointed.
