Crossfade: Rihanna and Robert Plant Both Performed in South Florida Saturday

Safe to say that booking Robert Plant at Bayfront Park Amphitheater and Rihanna at American Airlines Arena only a few blocks away from each other on Saturday evening in Miami created few conflicts among attendees -- perhaps aside from parking nearby. Our sibling blog Crossfade was up close at both shows. Jose D. Duran details his "first ever pop concert," which involves surprisingly little hate for Ke$ha and a lot of props for Rihanna (slideshow here). Meanwhile, Lee Zimmerman confirms that former Led Zeppelin frontman Plant is somehow far less shrill these days and yet more satisfying.
