Minneapolis 1975 Tour Rehearsal Photos

Recommended Posts

Led Zeppelin spent the day of January 17, 1975 at the Metropolitan Sports Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota-rehearsing and doing a soundcheck for the start of the U.S. '75 tour there the next day. They had previously played two warm-up shows to shake off the rust after a nearly 18 month break from live shows-during which time they recorded 'Physical Graffiti' and did some re-filming of the "TSRTS" movie and opened their own record label- "Swan Song." :D

The two warm up shows were held in Rotterdam 1-11-75 and Brussels 1-12-75 and previewed material from the forthcoming new 'Physical Graffiti.' They also would have to insert some last minute songs to replace 'Dazed and Confused', because Jimmy had hurt his finger and couldn't play the demanding number at the time- so they substituted the rarely played 'When the Levee Breaks' and the new 'The Wanton Song.' For the U.S. shows early on they would also add the early jam favorite 'How Many more Times.'

There was a rumour that the soundcheck recording-now billed as being from Chicago '73-was from this soundcheck in Minneapolis '75-it does sometimes make sense as it does include 'The Wanton Song' and 'The Rover' from the new album 'Physical Graffiti. ;)
