An excellent, short and complete show in front of a rather acerbic crowd. The acoustic section is excellent and Jimmy's outro solo in Black Dog and all of Heartbreaker are excellent, including one of the best 1972 Dazed And Confused versions ever and a killer Stairway To Heaven solo! Knees Up Mother Brown is a short tease that Plant commented: "Actually, that's on the next album!" As always, there are some troubles with the audience and Plant appealing for calm down. Celebration Day has its only 1972 premier and Whole Lotta Love doesn't contain any medley ... very rare! Two high powered encores cap this show.

I was there...and I'll never forget my amazement
with John Henry "Bonzo" Bonham! I hope the rumor of an upcoming tour with Jason Bonham holds true!

Peace~

I was at this show...we had just moved to Charlotte and while sitting in the hotel room waiting for the movers to come with the furniture, I saw an ad for the show in the newspaper. Next day my mother and I tried out the Charlotte bus system and went to the Coliseum box office where she bought me a ticket. Dad took me and came and picked me up afterwards. Great show and very inspiring for a 14 year old guitar player who, at the time, wanted to be Jimmy Page in the worst way. :-)

Was lucky enough to see them again in 1975 in Greensboro.

I was 12 years old, had front row floor seats at the stage. Well, closest I got was by one of the stage speakers. Unimaginable for a kid.

I was only 16 but I thought it was great. I will always remember the rosin flying off Page's violin bow! As to the acoustic unrest, hey we were kids from Gastonia, for goodness' sakes! We were ready to rock! But I still enjoyed the acoustic set. It was the only time I ever saw them in concert. My brother and I got the last 2 tickets to the Stones concert which featured Stevie Wonder as warm-up (!) secret guest. Our seats were all the way up behind center stage but we got a decent view through the mirrors they used for the spot lighting. Good times.

Jimmy Page broke a string at the end of "Heartbreaker" and instead of doing nothing during a delay they decide to play "Celebration Day" which requires the double neck.

It is also strange they play no medley during "Whole Lotta Love." Plant mentions catching a plane but they play two encores.

The audience is also very quiet and subdued. The show wasn't a sellout and it makes me wonder exactly what the audience were expecting. They really got impatient during the long acoustic set. The Rolling Stones would play this venue a month later to an ecstatic reception.

I was 15 and was surprised that the show wasn't sold out, maybe half full...we were able to get real close to the stage and was awestruck by the performance, especially Jimmy Page....I will never forget his Dazed and Confused solo !

I was 13 years old at this concert. Unfortunately our seats had limited view because of speakers piled up on stage, which was the norm back then. Still glad that I was at the show!
