Hello all you fellow Led-lovers. I don't know how this footage became public, but I shot it on my silent 8mm camera and converted it to VHS many years ago. We stayed up the whole night before, waiting for the gates to open at 4:00am, and had to endure a long day of pretty boring support acts before Zep hit the stage at about 9:00 pm. That explains my unsteady camerawork. "Celebration Day" it ain't! I don't mind it being used, in fact I'm happy that my determination paid off, and that others can enjoy it. Whoever dubbed the music to it did a fine job. My only request is that I be credited for what I managed to film in an exhausted (and mildly drunken) state. Enjoy!! Ron Huban, Sydney, Australia

Great fan footage! I love to see concerts from the fans point of view. I have some myself, personal use only.


Wow the Zep sounded like they were at the top of their game! Brilliant!

That was the most 'honest' video of the Zeppelin show at Knebworth to date. Great job to whoever took the footage.
