This show was the loudest musical performance I have ever heard.From begining to end it was obvious Robert Plant had the flu.The rest of the band picked up the slack and ripped the joint up!During the wait for the final number I lit up the extra copy of "Good Times"magazine I grabbed on the way in and made a torch that was about a 6 foot flame and was visible to every1 there,I wanted the band to know I was there(upper level in the back!) and appreciated their efforts w/Woody!Highlight of the perfomance:Trampled Underfoot and the extended jam on "Communication Breakdown" was:BADASS!!!

Me and about five of my other friends from Queens, NY got tickets for the Zepplin show in Madison Square Garden but ended up trading them with some other friends to see them in the Nassau Colisium instead. None of us had a car at the time, we were around 16 or 17 years old. So I talked my mother into giving us a ride and told her that we had a ride home (not true) So we got to the concert, it was really cold and was suppose to snow. I beleive Bad Company was suppose to be the opening act but canceled at the last minute so there was around a 90 min delay before Zepplin actually hit the stage. From what I remember they played for almost three hours and it was great, I remember a huge cristal ball spinning around the center of the Colisium during Stairway to Heaven (Peak of the Performance for me, if you know what I mean) So the concert ended and when we got outside it had been snowing the entire time we were in the concert, blizzard conditions. As I said before we really did not have a ride and headed for the bus terminal, when we got there it was closed so we decided to take a cab, even though we were broke at the time, A night my friends and I will never forget!

I just hope that if everything goes good during the reunion concert that they decide to do a world tour. Don't tell me your to old, I am a faitfull Ozzy / Sabbath fan and if they can do it,so can you!!!

Even though it was so many years ago and although I have since been to literally hundreds of Rock shows since then, this evening remains one of my all-time "Top Five" concerts. I've witnessed so many classic Rock and Roll moments, but this show really stands out.

Even at this time - the heyday of Classic Rock - Led Zeppelin were one of only a few bands who could sell out arenas worldwide without benefit of an opening act. The show was 2 1/2 hours of solid Zeppelin, with only a 10-minute break for the other three members while Bonzo soloed on "Moby Dick."

My brothers and I were obsessive Zep fans and we listened voraciously to every bootleg we could get our hands on, so we were well familiar with what constituted a good show and what didn't. February 13, 1975 was an esepecially good night. Robert Plant was in fine voice and the band was really "on." The rolled through their set like the unstoppable force they were.

But what made the night even more special was that the concert occurred about two weeks before the U.S. release of "Physical Graffiti." Although radio had one track to play there was tight security around the rest of the album. Peter Grant had promised dire consequences to any DJ who played it before the release date - a threat that all took seriously.

So, the first time we heard the music from "Physical Graffiti" was as performed live in concert by Led Zeppelin. When they played the epic "Kashmir" it was unlike anything any of us had heard played by a Rock band. When they finished the song, a full twenty seconds of stunned silence elapsed before the crowd erupted in applause. In all the shows I've seen I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen that happen (another was Floyd '76 so you can imagine).

As if that weren't enough, the "icing on the cake" was a guest appearance by then-Face and future Stone Ron Wood, who joined the band on the last encore, "Communication Breakdown."

I hope someday to find a bootleg of this show so I can hear whether it was as good as I remember it. I would be really surprised if it weren't!

Peace and love to all of you who were also there. You know I speak the truth. - GG

A great show! The band is strong, Robert's voice is in fair shape and Jimmy is blazing, especially on a great version of Dazed And Confused and an epic Stairway To Heaven solo. Roll Over Beethoven is only a short vocal rehearsal but one of the encores features Ronnie Wood on second guitar, dueling with Page as they trade licks in an extended jam that sounds killer when Jonesy and Bonham jam behind it.

I was there too. As I remember it Ron Woods and Rod Stewart both came out for the encore. I laughed, because they both had sunglasses on, and it was around midnight.

I for one would like to see Zeppelin stay retired and keep their legend intact.
