Note: 

Two shows: 7pm & 10:30pm

Press Review: Times have been good to Led Zeppelin. They are making both good money and good music. If their heavy sound has gotten to be too much for you, rejoice. It has had the same effect on them and they are back into more acoustic material.

They did some material from the third album, which has four or five acoustic tracks. They drew heavily from folk traditions for the first album and the success with which they did it was the most impressive thing about it. The new one sounds even better.

Both Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are more relaxed and human now. The first concert had them being pretty much concerned with being rock stars, but that is over now. Plant seemed especially perceptive about what was going on around him. He stopped the show twice for emergencies, something they probably would not have done the first time they were here.

Page played well but but there was a certain routine manner about his gig, which is not to say it was bad. Page at his worst is better than most people. He plays extremely fast and accurately and has a fine sense of dynamics. He is one of the elite. (Honolulu Advertiser, 9/7/70)

A very incomplete set that is dominated by the amazing voice of Robert Plant! The band plays exceptionally well but Robert blows everything off the stage with his amazing voice! Jones leads the group right into Dazed And Confused after Immigrant Song, causing a spontaneous change in the set list. "What am I doing" said Plant after the song and he intrioduced the next one: "This is one from the second album. It's about a mean woman - as they usually are!" and Heartbreaker was performed as well. This version is awesome and the Whole Lotta Love Medley is great. Some equipment problems plagues the show what caused Robert to quite funny commentary: "The group's been renaimed The Box Of Tricks - 'cos we don't know what these things really are, but they come with us everywhere we go." This is not a much better show than the one two nights before, but has a quite different mood and is loaded with guts, power, and shorter, more focused versions of the songs. During acoustic set someone had a seizure. There were also a few problems with fighting between fans and the show was stopped for awhile. We don't know from which show exactly this recording comes from.

I was in the audience with my surfing buddies at the time (Leilehua HS class of '72)! The whole arena was shakin'!
