  1. That would surprise me... I was at this show, and the video screens were definitely not used that night. I'd heard they were used the next night though...not sure about the rest of the Largo shows.
  2. Great pix from one of my all time favorite shows...thanks for posting them!!!
  3. I'm so excited about this one! I was at the 5/25 show-- can't wait to hear it again....
  4. Ah...I have this set meself... and it's definitely one of my very favorite Zep shows!
  5. Baby, won't you carry meeeeeee.... Back! to Tennessee....
  6. I'm sure there must be other threads on this topic, but the short answer is: Led Zeppelin doesn't own the film. They don't have rights to re-edit it.
  7. So Rt 202 north of 214 is Landover Rd, and south of 214 is Largo Rd. And I see Cap Ctr Blvd is north of 214. Why then was the Cap Ctr always advertised as being in Largo? Or was that my Virginia-side of the Beltway thinking....?
  8. Nope--they knocked it down. There's a shopping mall there now. Fed Ex Field is very nearby tho--in Landover. (As those of us familiar with the Crap Ctr know, it was actually in Largo, not Landover as most records of those shows state). The parking lot was the greatest. Many a fantastic pre-show party in that ol' lot.... Liberty Bell lot...or Stars and Stripes?
  9. However, let me just add (while the Giants/Skins are in a tv break) that we should grab a beer at the Garden if they do those New York shows we expect! lol!.... (and really--if they decided to do a couple stadiums, Fed Ex field in Maryland -- right near the old Capital Center-- holds over 90 thousand people for football....I'm just sayin... )
  10. Good points--and you're right on reserving some judgement. But I still think that, while I would love to see them again, I just wouldn't expect them to be what they were then. It's just not going to happen. They'll be good, and do things that'll make us all proud of them, but there's a different magic you can make when you're 28 than when you're 60. And no one is more aware of this than Robert Plant....which is why he will opt out of any Zep tour. A couple shows here or there aren't out of the question, I think, but I just don't believe it'd hold his interest long enough to do more--and o
  11. Good points, and of course you're right-- they're not what they were, and I doubt anyone expected them to be. I've loved what I've seen and heard of the reunion--but it's definitely more for the nostalgia factor than the actual merits of the performance (which WAS good--but ....)
