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)

Dim remembered days

To my recollection, one of the support acts was Stone the Crows, fronted by Maggie Bell with Les Harvey (Alex's brother) on guitar. There also were between the acts a guy who span plates on poles and someone with some performing? pigs. I always wondered if they left any little deposits on stage.

Moby Dick lasted about 30 minutes and left me gasping in amazement at John's stamina.

Sorry I can't remember much more these days but if anything else comes back you'll be the first to hear of it.
