This past Tuesday (July 13), Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant kicked off his summer U.S. tour with The Band Of Joy at the Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee.
The setlist encompassed not only versions of songs from the Zeppelin catalog ("Thank You", "Gallows Pole", "Misty Mountain Hop", "Houses Of The Holy" and "Rock & Roll") to solo cuts, including several previews from the upcoming album 'Band Of Joy', due out September 14th via Rounder Records.
The band, which besides Plant includes lead guitarist Buddy Miller, multi instrumentalist Darrell Scott, bassist Byron House, percussionist Marco Giovino and singer Patty Griffin delivered an extremely well received almost two hour set - a review of which from the Memphis Commercial Appeal can be accessed here.
Now via YouTube comes a nice preview of the band's performance in the form of a montage of songs performed on the tour's inagural night, which can be accessed either here or below.(Photo Credit : Nikki Boertman Memphis Commercial Appeal) To see Robert Plant and The Band Of Joy tour dates go to this location.
