Houston,TX- The Summit- May 21, 1977

Recommended Posts

This concert is the one if I had been able to go to any would have been the one. I would have been only 8 years old but I live about 25 miles east of downtown Houston and would later see many a concert at the Summit which is now Lakewood church.

I was so happy when the great sound board audio of this show surfaced. I also think there is a real video of the show in someone's hands. I have several shows from 1975 till now of other groups that were recorded there. I also remember several shows I saw being broadcast on the video screens -one above the stage and one at the other end of the venue. One show I remember like yesterday that I was at and there are clips of it on youtube- was Aerosmith -1984. I was on 3rd row and it was a great show- as it was the tour that Joe Perry and Brad Whitford were back with the band after 5 years being away.

Anyway I think they played great at this show- maybe not as intense as the shows in Los Angeles but still very good. Robert even sang a bit of Custard Pie and a bit of Bad Company's song--Leaving Here from Burnin' Sky(my fav of theirs). I couldn't find many pics other than the two in timeline section on here -which I enlarged some and then the photoset sheets which I had to enlarge as well-sorry as they are not the greatest but they are better than nothing. I had some photoset sheets showing other parts during the show but they are on my other computer in storage.

Yes, David, Zeppelin were healthy coming to that part of the '77 tour, after a break.

I saw them two nights in a row, in Houston, and then in Ft. Worth. BOTH were very satisfying shows!

David, I did look for any sign of camermen at the Houston show. I also looked for any images on any video screen, but, alas, I must report that I saw none. No cameramen, and no video screen images were seen by me. :(

Now if, someone secretly shot the band with an in house remote camera, then that will remain a mystrey, until the video is released.

But, until such a time as that, there can only be specualtion, as there is no concrete proof that the Houston concert was filmed.

Awesome pictures! I like listening to this show a lot, so it's fun to imagine the audio going along with these.

I think they're just 8mm photo stills scanned at low res and heavily compressed digitally.

When I was 8, I wanted to dearly go and see ... The Beatles. But, my parents would not take me, and that was the only way I could go.

I'll always remember the Houston conert in '77 as the one where the audience all stood at the beginning of the show, and on the floor, almost every was standing ... on their chairs. I had never seen a salute like that before, at the beginning of any show. It was the "forest" of people standing on the chairs, that allowed me the cover to jump from the lower balcony to the floor, and make my way up to the center section... 3 rows back.

I remember seeing, in the row in front of me, to slender "hot" young chicks holding up what appeared to be, pages from a Playboy magazine, during the opening number. The power from the stage amps was quite intense, but then Led Zeppelin were a band that got the sound to you, even if you were in the back of the hall, or up in the nosebleed seats. :)
