  1. Hello again Forum members "new" and "old". It's been a while for me. I've finally managed to find some free time to attempt/create a thread specifically for Led Zep and related (Plant solo, Page solo, Jones solo, Page/Plant, The Firm, etc) - archives, strictly dealing with New Orleans. There is "The New Orleans thread" that I assembled way back when, but I prefer this to deal with Zep and related material, "ONLY". Please feel free to contribute (as long as it's New Orleans based) if at all possible. Thanks in advance. With all of the audio/video footage, articles (new and old) that's out there from the New Orleans area, I thought it would be cool to try and archive all of this stuff into one thread. *** 1971 *** Led Zeppelin's first concert (to my knowledge) in New Orleans was August 29th, 1971 @ The Municipal Auditorium. The date ironically was the same as Hurricane Katrina, 34 years later. How strange is that?!! Based off of the incredible audio footage available of the show following this date (in Orlando Florida - 8/29/71) the band must have been "smokin"!!! I wish to God, this was available. I have had no luck in finding it. If anyone has something to add from this performance, please post (Articles, reviews, newspaper clippings, etc.) Side note* A friend from High School told me that his dad saw Zep here earlier than 71' on a Natchez River Boat or something....He swears to this. I don't believe they visited before 71'. There is no evidence of it. If anyone can prove or disprove-please add. *** 1973 *** Led Zeppelin perform @ The Municipal Auditiorium on May14th. The best known bootleg of this show is "The Drag Queen". Below is a clip. Again, feel free to add anything to this. (vids, articles, etc) That goes for any show. *** 1975 *** Led Zeppelin perform @ the LSU Assembly Center on February 28th. The best known bootlegs of this show are "Rampagin' Cajun" and "Freeze". http://youtu.be/XNYjQNixs60 http://youtu.be/QjjqynVQ5-A *** 1977 *** Led Zeppelin perform @ the LSU Assembly Center on May 19th. Only video footage of this show exsist. No audio has surfaced. http://youtu.be/-1J8BGt2968 Later that year, while in New Orleans preparing to play their biggest concert yet - to a sold out show @ The Superdome - Robert Plant receives the phone call that would change his life,,,and the band. It would be very time consuming (more than I have the patience for) to do a chronological deal. Maybe it will turn out that way......with your help? Here (below) is the most recent show from Robert Plant, which happened two nights ago @ the Mahailia Jackson Theatre. July 17th, 2013. I was hoping to write a first hand essay/summary about the show, but there are some really amazing videos- (I'd like to share) that speak for themselves, so there really is no use in me describing the tunes, since this footage is available.(thankfully) However, I will tell you guys that the energy level was very high. I believe it was a sold out show. I have seen Plant roughly 5-6 times since 1988. I've seen better performances from him, but that's not to say this was a "bad" gig. He never disappoints. The band (as good as they are) seem to play a low-key role, making Plant the star of the show, more than the instruments/virtuosity - taking precedence. Some songs were better than others. My favorites from the night were, "The Enchanter", "Tin Pan Valley", 'Fixin to Die", "Friends", "Four Sticks" and "Whole Lotta Love". His voice was strong throughout, and he teased the crowd with some chants and wails from back in the day- giving reference to "that confounded bridge" and screaming "push. push"...The Golden God was there to please. Fell free to add anything to the Archives "new" and "old"..(New Orleans).. and please enjoy the footage from Wednesday night. It "twas" amazing! In the meantime-I'll do my best to keep up with this. See Ya'll. RH
