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)

Concert description

Decent sound for an exceptional show! Robert is in great voice and the band just steams through the set. "Are you cold?" asked Plant rather frozen audience. Being a bit disappointed with lack of pig acts, Plant said: "I expected a bit more from the pigs! Did you? I could have brought some goats!" A good acoustic set is followed by a long and great version of Dazed And Confused that has so much spontaneous music in it that it seems like it could go on forever! Great Whole Lotta Love medley to close the concert.
