On This Day 23 January

When "The Tea Party" meant something different than it does today

1969 23 January & 1996 23 January On This Day

  • 1967 The Yardbirds - Sydney, Australia at Sydney Stadium (day 2, 2 sets)
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Boston, MA. at Boston Tea Party (day 1 of 4)
  • 1996 Page & Plant - Unledded Tour at Vina del Mar,Chile at Estadio Sausalito
  • 2008 Jimmy Page with Jack White & The Edge - Burbank,CA at Warner Brothers Studio to record “The Summit” scenes for It Might Get Loud 

Today was the first of four shows at the Boston Tea Party.  This set was only 40 minutes because of equipment problems.  The On This Day photo (above) is from Led Zeppelin's return to the Boston Tea Party in May, not from the January shows.

"There's always that point when it might happen to you, when you're too old to pick the guitar up. And we're just trying to keep that day far, far away, and out of sight."
~ Jimmy Page, It Might Get Loud

Thankfully Jimmy Page has not at that point yet.
