On This Day 09 April

1969 09 April On This Day Led Zeppelin, Tolworth England at the Toby Jug
  • 1968 The Yardbirds - Miami Beach FL at Thee Image Club (day 2 of 3)
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Tolworth England @ Toby Jug
  • 1970 Led Zeppelin - Tampa FL at Curtis Hixon Hall
  • 1977 Led Zeppelin - Chicago IL at Chicago Stadium (day 3 of 4)
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - Boston MA at Boston Gardens
Check out how Jimmy Page handles Becks Bolero at approximately 7:00 in the How Many More Times medley in Tampa. What an extraordinary show that was.

Day three of Chicago, after a break due to the hockey game at the Chicago Stadium, and this night's show was cut short because our Mr. Page was sick with probable food poisoning.  "If I hadn't sat down I would have fallen over," he said. Various accounts have Jimmy Page swaying, dropping his pick, collapsing onto the drum riser or into a chair that a roadie had brought out for him, throwing up, and/or passing out. No wonder he looked so grumpy in the photos.

The show was to be rescheduled for August, with a promise by Jimmy Page published the next day in Circus to do an "all-request show", but it was not to be.
