renounce Posted January 16, 2011 Share Posted January 16, 2011 Found out recently that there was a further date after the final 7.7.80 concert that got cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Am puzzled by this as this was only one year after Knebworth where demand was so high that a second date was added. Having listened to the 7.7.80 show imho it's no great loss to the world that the gig on the 8th was cancelled (Page noodling around in very elongated jams that went nowhere, awful synth on the Rain Song - the mellotron was so much more atmospheric, a tired sounding Bonzo, and RP sounding like he couldn't wait to go home) but i'd still be interested to know why ticket sales were so low. This must have been the only show they ever cancelled for this reason. Was it lack of promotion or populariity or what? If anyone knows i would be grateful to be enlightened.
