On This Day 20 November

Playing in the pool
1971 20 November On This Day Led Zeppelin at Wembley

  • 1966 The Yardbirds - Detroit, MI at Michigan State Fair Coliseum
  • 1971 Led Zeppelin - London, England at Wembley Empire Pool
  • 1998 Page & Plant - Zurich, Switzerland at Hallenstadion 

The 10,000 tickets for this Led Zeppelin gig sold out in an hour so a second concert was set up for the next night. Dancing Days was premiered at this show - it had not yet been recorded for Houses of the Holy. Stone the Crows, with Maggie Bell, opened for Led Zeppelin. Maggie later signed on with Swan Song Records, and she performed at the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute concert in 2007.

Jimmy Page was honored at the EMP Founders Award last night in Seattle.  He performed with the guest band, too.  Photos and video here.

The good news is it's finally Friday.
The bad news (for this blog) is that my project deadline got extended so I gotta keep working.
Only a few more days, though...
