23.5.1998 – Jacksonville – after seeing the Chicken Bones left by other guys in our Motel room we move on to the Ramada Inn. At the Coliseum Page and Plant performed in front of 7000 people.
Funny for us as germans was the fact that we had to show our IDs to a cop and got a bracelet that allowed us to order beer. The next morning we drive back to Tallahassee and fly backto Germany.
Setlist: Egyptian Intro/The Wanton Song/Bring It On Home/Heartbreaker/Ramble On/Walking Into Clarksdale/No Quarter/Burning Up/Going to California/Tangerine/Gallows Pole/Heart In Your Hand/Babe I’m Gonna Leave You/How Many More Times (interpolated with Morning Dew)/Most High/Whole Lotta Love/Encores: Thank You/Rock and Roll
Review: The mood was very good and so was the band. They played their best gig so far and you could see that on their faces. Page was waving to the audience after the show and he and Robert where laughing and smiling all over. They changed the setlist for that gig. The played Burning Up earlier and then they put in My heart is in your hand after Gallows Pole. The new songs were brilliant. They had so much fun during that gig that the rest of the band forgot to play while Plant sang and so he had to remind them of playing. It was a great show. For me and for many others we have spoken to they were much better than in 1995. The video screens are very good too.
