January 6, 1975, a crowd of 2,000-plus lines up outside Boston Garden to buy tickets to the rock band Led Zeppelin. Some in the crowd then broke in to the near-empty arena, and caused thousands of dollars in damage.

What I want to know is there someone on this board that was there that night ??

tickets were going on sale the next morning. Boston Garden security let the fans stay in the place over night because it was middle of winter in Boston. Nobody broke in, but there was enough damage to the Garden that Boston Mayor at the time, Kevin White cancelled the show and banned Led Zeppelin from ever performing in Boston again..... and they never did.

Page and Plant I believe were the last band to play the old Garden and the 1st band to play the new bldg ... then called the Fleetcenter.

I wasn't there .... was only 11 at the time, but I remember it making the news.

Jan 12th 1969, Led Zeppelin's debut album was released in the UK. Recorded at Olympic Studios in Barnes, London, the album took only about 36 hours of studio time to complete at a cost of just £1,782, most of the tracks being recorded 'live' in the studio with very few overdubs. The album spent a total of 71 weeks on the UK chart.
