I am in my late fifties and was lucky to see Zep when I was able. So you can imagine my anger when trying to get tickets for this gig. No one I knew got a single ticket. Next to add insult most of the "celebraties" who got free tickets could not tell Led Zeppelin from Lead Piping. Then hoping we would one day see the footage it is now here at last. The Blu Ray is of excellent quality and I have to say the filming is such a high standard that we have the best of both worlds. An amazing legend of a band filmed with the most upto date equipment. This has to be the best live performance video in my massive collection. Zep have chosen the songs well. The concert flows smoothly from one great song to another and the group are enjoying themselves along the way. Jason Bonham is at times spot on matching his dad stick for stick. Other times he is slightly different but still fits the band so well that he is an asset to the whole show. No matter who you are in music or how famous you think you are this is the concert to compare yourself to. It is faultless and enjoyable, filmed with the veiwer in mind and has phone footage dropped in to add a lightly "more live being there dimension" to the show. The sound with the footage seems to be bass boosted so I trimmed this to get a better mix of instruments to voice. The guys in Zep say this iis it, no more new songs and no more new performances. That's a shame as the fans that saw your early days up to Knebworth need to feel it in the flesh just once more. I look at the crowd and some were not even born when Jon died. That does not seem fair to me. John Paul, Jimmy and Robert do not need the money, but we the fans need a form of closure ourselves. We felt robbed when this concert took place and so many from so far away came and had a great time for the event not who you are. We the ones who sat in muddy fields and followed you near and far seemed to have been overlooked and forgotten. I will continue to enjoy this set for ages, hoping maybe, just maybe you will treat all your older loyal fans to some moments of pleasure for a priceless back catologue that is a vital piece of musical history
