Jimmy Page and Peter Grant checked out Robert Plant performing with a band called Hobstweedle (a.k.a. Obs-tweedle) at a teachers training college near Birmingham.  Chris Dreja was with Page and Grant.

The Boston Garden was one of the venues for Led Zeppelin's North American Tour after the release of Houses of the Holy. The crowd was rowdy and Plant's voice was strained. He tried to quiet things down several times but nothing helped so several songs were cut from the setlist and there were no encores.

"Shambolic" is a word I learned from Jimmy Page, and it is a word that applies to the Tempe show, which also had several songs cut from the setlist.
