On This Day 07 April

Shut up and listen...
1977 07 April On This Day Led Zeppelin in Chicago

  • 1967 The Yardbirds - Stockholm Sweden at Radiohuset
  • 1970 Led Zeppelin - Charlotte NC at The Coliseum
  • 1977 Led Zeppelin - Chicago at Chicago Stadium (day 2 of 4)
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - East Rutherford NJ at Brendan Byrne Arena (day 2 of 2)

1970 Jimmy Page / Led Zeppelin, Charlotte NC
Totally amazing that the audience could be so bad that Robert Plant would tell them to shut up. Can you imagine these days going to a Led Zeppelin concert and not being 110% focused on the show?

The show must not go on...
Chicago provided its challenges. This second of four days of shows had a time limit, tough for a band that played long shows. Because the Chicago Black Hawks had to use the arena the next night, the union that worked this arena demanded that the band be done by 11:00 P.M.  The Showco sound system had to be torn down and then after the hockey game, reassembled for Saturday's show. In My Time Of Dying and Trampled Under Foot were dropped from the set that night.

Note that the Stormtrooper outfit was  not worn on this day - in spite of the photo used for today's post on Jimmy Page's website.  The outfit was only worn on the final night in Chicago and then only for part of the show.
