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)

November 1971 concert

What a concert - about the best I ever got to (and that includes The Who here in Brisbane last week). Bronco opened the show, followed by Stone the Crows (Les Harvey lost to us a few weeks later from memory? Electrocuted at Swansea Uni??). Then circus acts (piglets on trampolines etc - no I wasn't on drugs) followed by close to 3 hours of Zep. Had to walk back to South Kensington as Underground trains had stopped by the time we got out, but who cared? What a concert (reprise)!!
