After cancelling a Toronto show in June, Robert Plant returned to the city to prove that he’s still got it. Plant brought along his eclectic supporting cast, The Sensational Space Shifters and they were just that, sensational.
The night began perfectly with “Trampled Under Foot” the classic dance tune off Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti. From there, Plant offered a new hit, “Turn It Up” from his latest album. Throughout the night Plant sprinkled the set with reworked, retooled Led Zeppelin classics that we all know and love. “The Rain Song” slowed things down halfway into the show, Plant and the Space Shifters created magic that Jimmy Page would have been proud of.
Before the encore, Plant and his band played a medley of “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” “Who Do You Love?” and “Whole Lotta Love.” Fans absolutely loved that mash-up as they swayed their arms in the air.
Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters ended the show with “Rock and Roll.” And that is what they brought to Toronto, a good old night of rock and roll.
