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  
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.

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