NY Press Conference

Having just returned from the UK where Led Zeppelin displaced the Beatles as "Best Group" at the Melody Maker awards, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant hold a press conference at the Plaza hotel. The death of Jimi Hendrix is also addressed, as news of his passing was reported.

The band would play two shows the following day at Madison Square Garden.

Footage of the press conference is available on the official Led Zeppelin DVD, released in 2003.

Submit your personal review of a particular show you attended, updates, corrections, etc., which will be considered for addition to the official online archive.
