Robert Plant Strange Sensation Sage Gateshead 30th October 2005

Robert Plant Strange Sensation Sage Gateshead 30th October 2005plant2005 My next encounter with Robert Plant in concert was at the Sage Gateshead in 2005. The band was Strange Sensation and they were promoting Mighty ReArranger, which was Plant’s 8th solo album. The setlist consisted of songs from the new album, plus some oldies and was as follows: Tin Pan Valley; Shine It All Around; Black Dog; Freedom Fries; 7 and 7 Is; Win My Train Fare Home (If I Ever Get Lucky); Going to California; Another Tribe; Thank You; Hey Joe; Four Sticks; Gallows Pole. Encore: The Enchanter; Boogie Chillen’; Whole Lotta Love. Another good show, with the Eastern and psych influences showing through even more strongly; to the extent that the reworkings of Zep classics had moved even further from the originals. I saw Plant once more, at the Sage again in 2010, and blogged about that show at the time. I have yet to see his latest band, something which I intend to put right this year if I can. This concludes my reflections on Mr Plant; I have one Jimmy Page concert to write about, and will do so tomorrow.

One response to this post.
