  1. 3 Days remaining - How do you feel? 3rd day of June, 1977 - After a Led Zeppelin concert at Tampa Stadium was cut short because of a severe thunderstorm, a riot broke out amongst the audience, resulting in several arrests and injuries. Police ultimately resorted to tear gas to break up the crowd.
  2. 4 Days left - Are YOU ready?!?! 4th day of December, 1980 -- Led Zeppelin issued a press statement confirming that the band would not continue without Bonham. "We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend, and the deep sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were." 27 years ago almost to the day!
  3. 5 days to go - CAN YOU FEEL IT YET?!?!? 5th day of October, 1970 -- Led Zeppelin III, the third album by Led Zeppelin, was released by Atlantic Records. It was recorded between January and July 1970 at Olympic Studios, London and Headley Grange, East Hampshire, then mixed at Ardent Studios, Memphis in August 1970 during Led Zeppelin's sixth American concert tour. The album was produced by guitarist Jimmy Page and engineered by Andy Johns. It has been suggested that Led Zeppelin III was something of a watershed release for the band, as it marked a change from Page's domination of the

  5. To what exactly are you referring to when you say "as at the Alley Palley and Earls Court LAST NIGHT"!?!?!?
  6. Plan for rain more than snow. Make sure your coat is waterproof. Most "parkas" don't hold up well in the rain. Also it's unlikely to get below freezing. Check the forcast: http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/busi...topnav_business
  7. 8 days until liftoff!!! 8th day of November, 1971 -- Led Zeppelin's fourth album was released. There was no indication of a title nor band name on the original cover, but on the LP label four symbols were printed . The band were motivated to undertake this initiative by their disdain for the media, which labelled them as hyped and overrated. In response, they released the album with no indication of who they were in order to prove that the music could sell itself. The album is variously referred to as Four Symbols and The Fourth Album (both titles were used in the Atlantic Records catalogue
  8. 9 days to go!!!! 9th day of January, 1944 -- James Patrick Page was born in the west London suburb of Heston, which today forms part of the London Borough of Hounslow. His father was an industrial personnel manager and his mother was a doctor's secretary. In 1952 they moved to Miles Road, Epsom. Jimmy Page first picked up the guitar when he was 12 years old and although he took a few lessons in nearby Kingston, was largely self-taught. His early influences were rockabilly guitarists Scotty Moore and James Burton, who both played on recordings made by Elvis Presley, and Johnny Halliday, who
  9. The only way the band would disappoint me would be if they already know now that they are going to do more dates and are simply waiting until after the o2 show to announce it. Particularly with Harvey's stance against reselling of tickets. If they announce additional dates before the o2 show it would reduce the demand for tickets for the o2 which in turn would stop the touts from making so much money off of the show. Also, and more importantly, is the time and money that some fans are spending to attend the o2 show, with the belief that this is their ONLY chance to see the band. It might be go
  10. I'm sure there will also be quite a few people on Entertainment Ave. shopping, dining, etc.. that haven't even heard about the show. They will be wondering why it's so busy on a Monday!
  11. I have not been to the dome, but I found this information on their website: Even if you don't have tickets to a specific event at The O2, the fabulous Entertainment Avenue is open for anyone to visit day and night. Like a small village – it covers over half our floor space at The O2 – the Avenue surrounds the arena and is packed with restaurants, bars, clubs and our fantastic 11 screen multiplex cinema, so it's the ideal place to be with your family or just hang out with mates. Whether you want to watch a movie, enjoy a good feed, get the cocktails in, lose it on the dance-floor or do all o
  12. I've not stayed there personally but I find that Tripadvisor.com is a pretty good source for opinions on hotels around the world. Here is the link to travelers' reviews of the Edward Hotel: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g1...on_England.html
  13. 16 days ..tick toc tick toc 16th day of May 1966 -- Drummer Keith Moon, bass player John Paul Jones, keyboardist Nicky Hopkins, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page recorded "Beck's Bolero" in London's IBC Studios. The experience gave Page an idea to form a new supergroup featuring Beck, along with The Who's John Entwistle on bass and Keith Moon on drums, however the lack of a quality vocalist and contractual problems brought the project to a halt.
  14. 17 days and counting 17th day of January 1969 -- Led Zeppelin's debut album, Led Zeppelin, was released in America to capitalise on the band's first U.S. concert tour. Before that, Atlantic Records had distributed a few hundred advance white label copies to key radio stations and reviewers. A positive reaction to its contents, coupled with a good reaction to the band's opening concerts, resulted in the album generating 50,000 advance orders. It stayed on the Billboard chart for 73 weeks and held a 79-week run on the British chart. The album was a massive fiscal success. In Stephen Davis' bi
