New York - On September 18, iconic rock star Robert Plant performed at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, for an excellent turnout.
Plant began his set with "Poor Howard," and the venue gave him a raucous response, in awe of his legendary status. He was joined by his band, The Sensational Space Shifters. It was followed by the Led Zeppelin tune "Trampled Under Foot," "Turn It Up" and "Black Dog," the latter of which resonate well with his fans.
He was able to perform his solo recordings, as well as the Zeppelin classics with ease, thus pleasing his listeners. These included "Rainbow," as well as "Black Country Woman" and "The Rain Song."
Plant had the audience clapping along to "The Lemon Song," as he played the tambourine. His rendition of "Little Maggie" was catchy and sensational. He saved his greatest vocal performance for last, and that was his classic hit, "Whole Lotta Love," where he was able to literally blow the roof off the venue.
Due to popular demand, he returned for an encore which incorporated a medley of "Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down," "In My Time Of Dying," as well as the Zeppelin classic "Rock and Roll," which was a crowd favorite.
