Press Review: Zeppelin concert golden memory for all

The mystical universe of Led Zeppelin exploded in a burst of laser beams and flash powder Wednesday night in the Greensboro Coliseum. The concert was one of Zep’s first stops on its current American tour.

The supermusical quartet lifted off the evening with “Rock and Roll,” and proceeded to increase the karma with some selections from their new album, Physical Graffiti.

AS USUAL, Robert Plant’s virtuoso voice wailed and shrieked to perfection. The dazzling sequined mentor of the guitar, Jimmy Page, hoofed his way about the stage and played his usual amazing style despite a recent bone fracture in one of his playing fingers.

John Paul Jones displayed his adeptness at the keyboards, and drummer John Bonham thundered away until the very foundation of the Coliseum shock to the rhythm.

Led Zeppelin is a powerhouse of heavy metal, but they still shine on the mellow “Stairway to Heaven.” Their oriental magic and hell-bent boogie and blues made the concert a golden memory for all who attended. [J.Worthington / Feb. 1975]

Greensboro January '75

I was at the Greensboro Zep concert in January '75. I was in my senior year at NC State and oh what a way to kick off three GREAT concerts at Greensboro that year. In January, it was Led Zeppelin on the Physical Graffitti tour. At mid-year (July, I think) the Rolling Stones showed up for the It's Only Rock N' Roll tour. And it was November '75 if my memory is right when we saw The Who play Greensboro on The Who By Numbers tour.

The release of Physical Graffitti was long awaited. It had been a year and a half since Houses of The Holy and we were starving for some new Zeppelin. As others here have noted, I do remember Plant mentioning Page's broken finger, but I think he mentioned that on other tours as well, so was it an old injury or new? The sound was a bit ragged, but it was Zeppelin in the flesh at long last.

Do you know they once played Dorton Arena in Raleigh in April 1970? I couldn't go (high school kid far far away) but wanted to badly.

Saw "Celebration Day" last night in Cary NC (drove over 2 hours to get there). Maybe their best concert ever. Crisp. Sharp. Well practiced. Well played. Still The Greatest Rock Band in History after a quarter-century-plus absence. How often do you stand and applaud a movie?
