Notes:

These two shows at London's Wembley Arena are named "Electric Magic" which featured circus performers, and included support acts such as Stone the Crowes. Nearly 10,000 tickets sell out within an hour - a second date is added.

Press review: The atmosphere almost leaps off the stage. Led Zeppelin performed Friday night and 9,000 of them put their hands above their heads and got their Saturday night rocks off.

There's a market set up inside the arena selling t-shirts and incense and a poster for only 30 pence. The weather is bitter outside but the audience is warmed up by opening act Stone the Crowes.  (Melody Maker, 11.27.71)

The band played at the end of a six hour circus-like evening with a 167 minute set... What the true essence of rock and roll is about:. (NME, 11.71)

Electric Magic Poster

Hi,

I can throw some light on the 'Electric Magic' poster as I did the original design for Peter Grant. The image was used in two ways; as a black and red double page spread in (I think) Melody Maker and as the full colour 30"x40" (approx) gig poster. In fact this poster is a 3 colour print, red, yellow, blue with the overlaying of these colours creating what appears to be black. This technique gives a much brighter end result than a normal full colour print. These posters were printed in Liverpool and I think that 2000 were produced. Quite a few of these were fly posted, the rest sold. I'm sorry to say that the black and red version of the poster as found on ebay is not original and as such is a forgery. To the best of my knowledge all the other versions of this image, T shirts etc. were/are produced without permission and are therefore 'bootlegs'. The original poster fetches large sums of money at auction but there is a high quality full size repro. available which has been sanctioned by myself in a limited edition signed/authenticated by me. I do not profit from/sell these myself but they are available from beam 265 on ebay

I hope that this clears a few things up.
