The Mannhiem Eisstadion Project

Well I traveled across the Ocean on a U.S. Navy Frigate We pulled into Kiel for a two week stay We were having problems with our Generators.I knew Led Zeppelin was touring Europe and was not really concerned as I knew they would be heading to the United States soon and by that time We would be Home.Well My First Class
hears about a Zeppelin show in Mannhiem and gets us a few days off so the next thing I know I am on a train heading to Mannhiem this is a good long trip for us and we don't speak verry much German.But we made it we got help a few times and ran in to some U.S. Army Guys in Mannhiem also going to the show.Well we did not know much about the area are where the Venue was but we soon found the Eisstadion they said it held 8500 people It really did not look that big to Me. The crowd was subdued compared to some of the American crowds I was used to at Zeppelin shows and I did not hear one Firecracker .There was a little pushing and shoving up front and Robert made mention of it once.Musically the Band was on
everything they did sounded great .Songs were a little shorter than they had been in the States or at least it seemed so at the time.The Band was not Dressed in the Regalia of the 70's glory days they had toned down some since the end of the 77 tour.But none the less this was Led Zeppelin in all thier glory call it what you will a warm up for the U.S tour as some have said or a Rock and Roll Masterpiece
For a Zeppelin fan it was Heaven on Earth.Jimmy did a little talking at this show a little unusual. Once again I dont agree with the critics this was a good show better than average for sure.Also the crowd was not nearly as rough as all that at least they got to turn out the lights.Well my partner and Boss met a girl so after failing to convince him to come back with me as to not be late .I boarded the train alone
He was two days AWOL and had passed out on the train while he was out someone cut his pockets back and front off his pants and stole his money and ID needless to say he got in a lot of trouble. and thats the story so far .I have only been to one of the reunions that was 85 in Philly a story for another day.
