The two concerts in Vancouver are almost cancelled, due to a strike by radio station CKLG-FM.
 
3-18-75: "CUPE local 1004 (Canadian Union of Public Employees) at the PNE and two other unions involved would have boycotted the concert if CUPE local 686, representing the CKLG strikers, had so wished. But CUPE spokesman Ole Johnson said the concert is “definitely on.”

“We felt it was in the best public interest to allow the concert to be held," he said, “We aren’t intertested in hurting the over 20,000 people who have already bought tickets."

A very heavy and overall, good performance. Plant apologise for the last concert they played in Vanvouver two years ago, and he said: "Last night it was quite a peculiar show actually. Something strange happened to me that evening. I found the light show to be amazing and I wondered what the name of the group was!" No Quarter is absolutely beautiful and Dazed And Confused rocks really hard and is led by Jimmy's amazing guitar prowess. Stairway To Heaven really lifts off during the guitar solo and the heavily improvised and dynamic encores close out this really heavy, powerful and exciting show, which in itself would prove to be nothing compared to the next night! Listen to the Whole Lotta Love encore for Lickin' Stick followed by the riffs from Ozone Baby, three years before it's recording! s on the previous night, the band members are in glorious humours and that caused of few very funny introductions. (Bonham was introduced as "a man who's a stinking rotten dirty pig!")

I was 16. This show was a massive sound Tsunami of talent, power and sheer energy...wave after wave of intense and relentless magic blasted from the speakers and poured over the crowd...simply overwhelming and jaw dropping!

We got to see a glimpse at musical genius creating their art…their chemistry was/is extraordinary and incredible. I am now 48. It seems like a life-time ago. In some respects it was, yet I still have vivid memories of their performance, especially Jimmy’s phenomenal and masterful guitar playing and tone. We loved them! The so-called Rock Gods had landed in Vancouver. We prayed at their alter for almost four hours…we left exhausted and numbed from the experience.

The noise hangover lasted for days. It is safe to say, the world will never experience a group of such talented musicians like this again. Led Zep’s place is Rock history is undeniable and well deserved. PS I saw them 1977 as well, but that’s another story.

Attending the second show was not originally in my plans but low and behold, a ticket ,that I could not really afford, was offered up and resistance was futile !

Having witnessed the outstanding show the night before, I was hoping that there would be a few suprises with the main set list but it was not to be. Still, the band was fabulous and if anything, maybe a little stronger than the previous night.

My first concert ever was the first show they did in Montreal 1970 (I believe) We were seated high and far away from the stage in the Montreal Forum.  There were 4 of us. We had travelled from New Brunswick to see Led Zeppelin. One friend was sitting to my left and the other 2 were on my right.  Somewhere into the concert I turned to my right to say something to my two friends.  They were gone. I though bathroom; they will be right back. They never showed for the rest of the concert. After the concert my other friend and I made our way outside where we found our friends. They said the literally crawled on they hands and knees outside because they couldn't take anymore.  I have never stopped talking about LZ since. I was 26 years old then; I am 71 today. I still love Led Zeppelin. I got to see them 4 times in my life. March 19 and 20 Vancouver; Seattle in 75  I consider this to be one of the highlights of my life.
