23rd Dec 1969, 'Led Zeppelin I' was on the UK chart. Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin's manager Peter Grant paid for all the recording costs themselves for the group's debut, as the band had not yet signed their deal with Atlantic Records.

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.
