LED ZEPPELIN TOUR ROCKETS OFF
May 8, 1973 - The Led Zeppelin's first U.S. tour in almost a year opened like a house afire last week. The group opened in Atlanta on Friday (4) on the first leg of a tour that will keep the group busy performing at U.S. venues until June 2 . The second leg of the tour is now being set for July.
The group's Atlanta date was a complete sellout at the Atlanta Braves Stadium, and marked one of the biggest crowds ever to attend a rock concert in that Southern City. The Zeppelin's Tampa date on Saturday (5) at the Tampa Stadium, broke all records for the huge arena, with the group outdrawing every other rock act ever to play the Florida West Coast City.
Led Zeppelin continue their tour with dates in Jacksonville, St. Louis, Mobile, New Orleans, Houston , Dallas , Fort Worth , Albuquerque, Denver , Salt Lake City , San Diego , Los Angeles , and San Francisco .
The group's new Atlantic album, "Houses Of The Holy" is now No. 1 on all best-selling charts.
