thanks for posting this....huge Zeppelin/Plant fan....
my 72 year old mom always gets me Zeppelin books for Christmas with rare photos....was just reading one this morning....

Wasn’t there a movie from that show?

The Song Remains the Same, into Nobody’s Fault But Mine. The best was the encore. Half of Whole Lotta Love right into Rock and Roll.
As good as that was, I still think the 1975 tour was better.
Sounds like the last company I worked at - it was in the music biz also - the Founders were stuck to their script and didn't want suggestions for doing anything different than what got them there in the glory days.
Good for Plant.
Yeah, I saw them too in April of ‘77...at the Pontiac Silverdome. General admission was all they had. I managed to get within 20 feet of the stage. Not too bad under the circumstances. However, the crowd was heaving forward, back and side-to-side so much that my friends and I lost sight of each other. Still, it was a great show and I would do it again if I thought I could.
What Tony Blair’s religious conversion and work as a peace ambassador has to do with Rock and Roll, then and now, I have no idea!
That's a couple weeks before I saw them (at the L.A. Forum, 17th row center). They played six nights, just like they did at MSG. Loudest show I've ever attended. Too loud, actually -- something I didn't think possible when I was that age. Not nearly has tight as the '73 tour -- the 35+ minute "No Quarter" was a bit over the top. IIRC, the songs from Physical and Presence were the highlights.
