Hello,

I still have my T shirt, programme, poster and ticket stub from the Earls Court gig in '75. I decided to not wear my t shirt, however those fans that did, the 'iron transfer' on the front soon peeled off.

The final Earl's Court show, the final 1975 show, and the last ever performance of Dazed And Confused. The initial string of numbers are high powered and aggressive! No Quarter is a really great jam and the acoustic section is pretty good. Moby Dick and Dazed are rather boring however, which is sad and rather unfitting as it is the last ever performance of the latter. Stairway To Heaven was dedicated to Plant's daughter: "Carmen - this song's to a little girl who sits probably wondering what it all about ... so, where is the bridge? Well, Carmen, were's your chance to find out where the bridge is ... and if you know, please let me know after the show." The solo is wonderful and the encores contain a tortured Theremin solo from Jimmy before the extra songs are played for the last night's sake.

Went to all three concerts in the second weekend. Still sends a shiver down my spine when I see footage from them. Previously saw them in Glasgow in 1972. Never seen anything to equal them before or since.

We travelled down from Glasgow on the Saturday overnight train. Wandered around London all day before going to the concert. After the four hour display by the band we had to walk from Charing Cross to Euston station and slept on the floor until the train left for Glasgow at 8.00 am on the Monday morning. But hey it was worth it. The concert was the best I have ever been at and I can remember the whole week-end vividly.

We queued up for tickets outside Virgin Records in the Horsefair, Bristol for nearly 2 days, quite a feat for a bunch of 15 year old kids, we were 5th in line. My mate steve's dad drove us up in a minibus and actually managed to get in to see the gig. It was a real hilight to my concert going as a teenager, we managed to get in to see most of the current rock bands at the colston hall and hippodrome. The gig was nearly 4 hours long as I remember, old fluff freeman doing the compering. We got a bit narked with some old hairies behind us who kept wanting us to sit down. Those awful wrongly spelt Osmondesque satin scarves were also a no no! Bought my copy of physical graphiti at the gig too. I still have it. I wonder whether seeing the band now, without Bonzo would be the same, would love to find out though. My kids are big fans of the band and it gives me some street cred actually having seen them.

I remember this like it was yesterday. Band came on earlier than 8.00 pm start and finally left the stage about 10 minutes after midnight, Jimmy Page looking exhausted.
Still the best gig I have ever seen in nearly 40 years of gig going

There is a young lady holding a scarf that read LED ZEPPLIN at the opening of the Earls Court footage on the 2003 LZ DVD. Do you remember seing this being sold inside at the suvenier stations a the Earls Court Stadium? Why as it misspelled? Please reply, thank you.

The gig that set the standard, after nearly four hours the only thing that could top it was meeting the band, which we did, i still have the autographs, first,last and always .
