SinceIveBeenLovingU Posted July 17, 2011 Share Posted July 17, 2011 Back in 1988, I was working as a news reporter for a rock radio network and got the assignment of a lifetime: to broadcast live from the 40th Anniversary concert for Atlantic Records. This all-day event took place at New York's Madison Square Garden and featured an amazing lineup of artists from Atlantic's (then) 40 year history. Zep fans remember it, of course, as the first time Page, Plant and Jones had played together since Live Aid -- with the addition of Jason Bonham on drums. Robert Plant also performed a solo set with his band earlier in the evening, then returned to play with Zep. The band was originally scheduled to go on at midnight, but didn't wind up taking the stage until almost 1:30 a.m., as I recall. I recently found my original stage production booklet for the concert -- these were distributed to crew and media only so we could keep up with the schedule of artists. Just scanned it and thought ya'll might find it interesting. All of the songs to be played were known in advance and listed here -- however, you'll notice their set had to be cut short. Pretty sure this was due to the concert running too late. Most likely NYC wanted that hall empty by 2 a.m.!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
