Anyway this was were We stayed and also were our tickets came from .At the time I did not know that Zep would be playing but after the second Day of touring the City He broke down and told Me well We got there on Tuesday now its Thursday and the first show was Friday 23 May 75 . I was freakin could not contain the excitement. I was in England and going to see Led Zeppelin at Earls Court My God it still does not sink in. This Show Rocked it was a better performance than any since New Orleans 73 .
