Swan Song Inc. - Press Release - Jan. 22, 1975
Peter Grant, manager of Led Zeppelin and president of their record label, Swan Song, has announced the itinerary for the second half of Led Zeppelin’s U.S. tour with dates as follows: Feb. 27, Coliseum, Houston, Texas; L.S.U., Baton Rouge, Louisiana (28); Tarrant Convention Center, Fort Worth, Texas, March 3; Memorial Auditorium, Dallas, Texas (4 & 5); Raceway, West Palm Beach, Florida (8); Sports Arena, San Diego, California (10); Arena, Long Beach, California (11 & 12); Coliseum, Seattle, Washington (17); Coliseum, Vancouver, B.C. (19 & 20); Coliseum, Seattle, Washington (21); and the Forum, Los Angeles, California (24, 25, 27).
This is Led Zeppelin’s first tour since their historic 1973 American tour in which they broke several concert attendance records that had been set years before by the Beatles. The group has already achieved phenomenal success with ticket demands for their upcoming tour. Tickets for their concerts in New York, Detroit, Indianapolis and Chicago sold out in record time. In New York, tickets for the group’s three concerts at Madison Square Garden were put on sale 36 hours earlier than the scheduled time because of the swelling crowd that waited more than 15 hours outside the venue.
In several of the cities, the sellouts were achieved without any advertisements whatsoever.
As is their custom, Led Zeppelin will perform approximately a two-and-a-half hour show. There will be no opening act.
