On This Day 13 January

Concert, delayed concert, no concert...
2010 13 January On This Day Peace Concert announced, Jimmy Page receives an award

  • 1968 Jimmy Page - Chelmsford, Essex, England at The Corn Exchange
  • 1970 Led Zeppelin - Portsmouth, England at Portsmouth Guildhall
  • 1980 Fool In The Rain on the US singles chart 

At a press conference announcing the planned Show of Peace Concert in Beijing, Jimmy Page was presented with the first-ever Global Peace Award by Michael Johnson of the United Nations' Pathways to Peace organisation. Johnson was reportedly a big fan of Led Zeppelin. Who can blame him for flying halfway around the world to meet Jimmy Page?
 "Although this award has my name on it, this is a tribute to the power of music and its positive effect. Music has been the most powerful language to reach the hearts of people around the world. During my career, I've experienced the connection and harmony that music can bring."
~ Jimmy Page
