This show is superb in my opinion and it was when Page & Plant started playing the songs sounding like Zeppelin again. Prior to their 1996 shows at the end of he tour, I was really disappointed by how much of the Egyptian Pharaohs (touring with them) sound they'd put into songs and the way they were sounding and being played. The ruined "No Quarter" with the way they were playing it. But I imagine they realized this and by the end of the tour, and all throughout the 1998 tour, they played the songs sounding very Zeppelin like. The Egyptian Pharaohs, the orchestrated music which allowed Page and Plant to play many songs correctly, were a great addition. But at the same time they took away from Page and Plant's talent when they were overused in their 1995 concerts. But once a fine balance had been made, and the band started playing songs like Led Zeppelin would have, they sounded superb. The feeling of the music returned as did the length of songs and the add-on parts and the music sounded much more like it use to up through the 1980 ending of Led Zeppelin.
This is the most Led Zeppelin sounding show I know of from their 1995/96 world tour and it is a must have for any Page, Plant, or Led Zeppelin fan.

This really is a superb looking and sounding show and it contains some of the bands best playing (as well as songs not in earlier shows) for the whole 1995/96 world tour. This show was almost 12 years before Led Zeppelin returned to the stage on December 10th, 2007 for a true reunion with John Paul Jones on bass and keyboards and Jason Bonham on drums too.
And speaking of drummers, Michael Lee, the drummer for both the 1995/96 and 1998 Page & Plant tours, is incredible. He is one of the closest "John Bonham sounding" drummers Page or Plant have ever worked with. He was a hard hitting and accurate drummer and comes closer to sounding like John Bonham than any other drummer I've heard. Unfortunately, and at the age of 39 in 2008, Michael Lee died from a heart problem just 5 days after his 39th birthday. Lee was a very accomplished drummer and had played with a number of larger, well known bands in his earlier years. But after being Robert Plant's drummer during many of his solo tours and studio releases, he then went on to be the studio and live drummer for Page & Plant on their world tours. He was incredible, and as you'll see in this show being uploaded, he knew how to sound like John Bonham more so than even Jason Bonham, the late John Bonham's son, did at the time.
Had Page and Plant decided to ask John Paul Jones to join the 1995 - 1998 Page & Plant tours and recordings, and with Michael Lee as their drummer, this would have been the prime time to have reunited Led Zeppelin and toured sounding like Led Zeppelin. But it didn't happen that way. And in 2007, 11 months before Michael Lee's death, Jason Bonham (sounding very good I might add) was who they used when the real Led Zeppelin members reunited for their one, last concert. And with Jason Bonham on drums, they sounded great. I understand too why it was best to use Jason Bonham for their final show and reunion. Besides keeping it in the family, Jason Bonham had really matured by this time and knew the music as well as anyone (even better than Plant and Page in some cases). And I am glad they ended things this way and on that note too.
Wikipedia has some interesting information and histroy on Michael Lee if anyone cares to read about him. And after you see this show, I bet you will find him more interesting and magnificent too. If so, check out Wikipedia's Michael Lee page here!
I hope you enjoy the superb show...
