Here a a Few Memories from this Show.
Me and a friend were on the Subway going to see Zep when an old lady we were sitting next to noticed there were a lot of "Long Haired Rock n' Rollers" on the train, she realized there must be a concert and she asked us, "who's playing tonight" we said Led Zeppelin and she replied, "yeah I hear "He's" really good". To this day it makes me laugh.
This Show was the Greatest Concert I have ever seen, and is the one I judge al other concerts against. I'm in the music business and have seen many concerts and none even come close to the energy and magical euphoria that Led Zeppelin could produce.
A few Highlights were:
John Paul Jones "No Quarter" Solo, the stage was filled with "dry ice smoke" and "blue lights", and if you were seated above it, it gave you the impression floating above the clouds while JPJ played some ominous "Dark Night of the Soul" Music. Incredible.
Next was John Bonham's Drum Solo on "Moby Dick". Phased and Flanged Drums Sounds in sync with Laser lights on the ceiling of the Madison Square Garden. When he played Loud the lights completely covered MSG Ceiling and when he played soft... with his hands, just a small wavey light could be seen. It was great to see him come to the front of the stage and play percussion in the acoustic part of the set, but lets not forget his right foot on that massive 26" non-muffled Bass Drum, it was like a Machine Gun.. Drummers know what I'm saying. We miss you John... R.I.P.
Next up... Jimmy Page and his solo in "Dazed and Confused". With his violin bow in hand, inside a Pyramid of Translucent Green Laser Light that rotated on the "Bomp Bomp" part, playing eerie music that would send Aleister Crowley running for cover. As Page played faster the "Pyramid" spun faster and faster and it looked like Jimmy was standing inside a Spiraling Green Laser Cyclone, commanding the winds to do his bidding... Awesome!
Next Robert Plant singing "Kashmir"... the lights in Madison Square were turned off, and Giant 70's style Disco Balls were hit with spotlights that made it appear as if the Garden was filled with thousands of moving Stars... the kind you would see on a clear night... while moving through Kashmir.
Finally lets not forget the Zep Fans themselves. I remember toward the end of the show sitting in Madison Square Garden looking around, and saying to myself... "So this is what it's like to be Inside a Bong with 30,000 thousand of the Coolest Friends on Earth!".
Ah... Sweet Memories.

I was there, first row 1st tier stage right on Jonesy's side. Anyway was totally annoying and shouted out Roberts name during a very serious Page solo or guitar break (I know , I know I was young what can I say) any how Robert did tell me to calm down as he was laying across John Pauls Grand piano.Any idea what song that was...anyone

I was very fortunate to get 2 sets of tickets for two of the six shows scheduled at Madison Square Garden, and even luckier it was the first and last nights (I still have my tisket stubs, program and t-shirt in a box in the attic). Tickets sales were by mail at the time due to the stampede incident from a Who concert earlier in the year but at the prime age if 16 and this being only my 10th concert ever at that time, I look back to say how lucky I really was. The set list was identical for the two show and I don't remember any warm up band. But it was an awesome experience and i re-live the moment every time I watch "The Song Remains The Same" or if I play one of my bootleg CD's from the 1977 tour. I will buy this new 2-DVD set of the 1973 tour and look forward to a 2008 reunion tour. And I didn't think anything could be better than the Crean reunion from two years ago. Led Zeppelin live is like no other concert experience; incredibly raw and loud with no technical over dub shit. Do try to experience history if you can.

Attended this show. What I remember the most is how blown away I was by being there. Didn't have great seats but didn't care. Could not believe how much drug use there was. Guys were walking up and down the isles hawking everything. What was interesting is that people had no problem passing joints to complete strangers. Whats funny is that I had very little experience smoking pot. I must have smoked the equivalent of 5 joints, but felt little. Or at least I thought I felt little. The lineup of songs were great. All of my favorites from Physical Graffiti were played. May have been the last great concert Led Zep ever gave.

I was on the floor about 30 rows back. I remember that they came on at 9;20 pm 80 minutes late. Robert toasted "to the queen" at one point. There was a red laser over Page that formed a pyramid shape that spun into a cone shape. Also green lasers going to the frequency of the music on the ceiling. Long Bonham solo, about 40 minutes. Archilles last stand was performed with all white lights. Everyone walked out completely drained from the show, it was one of the best shows Ive seen.

Quite a mixed performance. It is just about possible to say Kashmir is a good version and Plant is in good voice on The Battle Of Evermore. The audience are loud and let off firecrackers periodically and are not very impressed by an uninspired Moby Dick.
