I was there :-) Was only just 15 and can still remember it so clearly today.

I was heart broken when the first concert was cancelled. When the show was rescheduled I was really happy but by then I had been lucky enough to have seen them at Boscombe Ballrooms, Both the shows were brilliant I was lucky enough to see them again in January 1973 at Southampton University. All for one pound a ticket at venues that no name would consider playing these days. Maybe I will get the chance to see them again

First rock concert I had been to. Blagged a ticket off my mate Mick because his girlfriend could not go. Seminal moment of my life. I had not taken any notice of my mates raving about this group. I was skint but went out next day and bought all four albums. It completely changed my view of how music can change the way you feel or think. Still the best live music I have ever ever heard.....

This gig was dangerously overcrowded ,the demand for tickets was so high that more people got in than should have done They started with Immigrant Song and it was the loudest most impacting start to a gig I have ever seen the crowd visibly moved back a few inches from the force of the soundwaves.

I organised this gig for the band. It was probably the smallest venue on the tour. In spite of that, Peter Grant & Micky Most (whom I met in their office above Millets in Oxford Street) said it was a goer and plans were made.. Richard Cole invited me to the Wembley show early on in the tour so I new what a treat was in store for the Salisbury fans. Jimmy was ill and the gig had to be postponed from the 15th until the 21st December. Support was by Martin James's band, Marble Orchard and Bob Cooke's Band (Ian Gillan's proteges,) JERUSALEM. This was the most exciting concert Salisbury had ever seen or heard. Supper afterwards in the Provencal Restaurant. I think that Jimmy Page was driving a long wheelbase Land Rover and John Bonham a rather fine Rolls Royce Convertible. John very generously drove Tim Simons, one of the concert stewards home to Bemerton as he'd missed the last bus.....happy days

I was there too. My brother David co-promoted this with you. It certainly rocked Salisbury. I was 14 and not allowed to the after show dinner but collected by my Dad who promptly told Jimmy Page " What a bloomin racket I could hear you all up the street!!...Happy Days indeed!

i will never foreget this day as long as i live. they were brilliant.

i was 17 and went with some friends. already had albums of zeppelin.

my ears were still ringing the next day. cant believe the ticket price of £1.

great days.

I was at both concerts with friends Nigel and Jacqui - I thought Marble Orchard were excellent (whatever happened to them?) and the re-scheduled Led Zep set was superb......except for that awful rock'n'roll section in the middle of Whole Lotta Love! Why did they bother?
