On This Day 12 July

1967 12 July On This Day Yardbirds in Illinois

  • 1967 The Yardbirds - Aurora, IL at Crimson Couger Club
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Philadelphia, PA at The Spectrum - Summer Pop Festival
  • 1973 Led Zeppelin - Detroit, MI at Cobo Hall
  • 1995 Page & Plant - Unledded Tour, Glasgow, Scotland at Scottish Exhibition Centre  
1969:
Led Zeppelin - follow the rules? Wasn't Jimmy Page always about pushing the musical envelope? At the three day Summer Pop Festival there was a thirty minute performance limit and a no-encore rule. But no rules apply to Led Zeppelin. The fans went crazy and Led Zeppelin came back onstage for an encore.

1973:
More firecrackers. I've said it before and I'll say it again and again: It's not easy being a rock star.
