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)

Time

Wow, where did that time go?? here I am at 58yrs old and I still remember this gig like it was yesterday, I was just 20 then and recall just how weird the line-up was, some bloke spinning plates on sticks, some performing pigs, then down to the good stuff,

I think a band called "Home" were on followed by "Stone the crows" with Maggie Bell, then Led Zep, what a night! I saw Zep twice more, the last time at Knebworth;

I saw Robert Plant a few times in his solo days too, always great. So here I am 38yrs later and next month I'll be off to see Deborah Bonham here in Bahrain, should be good I think. The Led Zep "family" has been a constant through my life and I still play Zep (too loud?!) often, fantastic band. Ian.
