Led Zeppelin show June 30th 1980 Frankfurt Festhalle

When the german Led Zeppelin tourdates started in 1980, I first held a ticket for July 2nd 1980 but when I got my conscription for the german military service starting July 1st 1980 I had to look for a chance to exchange my ticket from the Mannheim show to the Frankfurt show.
I was successful, thanks to the brothers of my former wonderwall heroine Regina, and so I could attend the Frankfurt show on June 30, 1980.
The crowd was really exited to see Led Zeppelin perform live on stage. A friend of mine borrowed me his fully mechanical Minolta and so I could take some diapositives of the show which are shown on this website.
And yes Jimmy Page tried to calm down the audience which was completely freaking out with his words "Please give us a chance..." after having played some gentle chords which he obviously couldn´t hear. This was 1980 and the in ear monitoring wasn´t invented yet.
After the concert I lent two Deutsche Mark to an american serviceman so he could buy a concert poster for about five. He introduced himself as "Paul Daxby", that´s all I remember. Hey Paul, if you were still alive, please drop me a line.
It was an unforgettable evening and after the show I was heading directly to my barracks knowing I had experienced a part of rock music history. RIP John Henry Bonham, your style will be unforgotten.
