Zurich, Switzerland-Hallenstadion-June 29, 1980


Recommended Posts

This was the ninth show of the 1980 European tour. It is one of the best from this tour-just a fantastic show and has an awesome atmosphere. I would say that since they had to cancel the previous show in Nuremburg on June 27, after only three songs, that they were ready to kick some ass. It reminds me of how in 1977 after the San Diego June 19 show where Bonzo wasn't feeling too good and then at the next show in Los Angeles June 21 they played one of the best shows on that tour.

All the songs at this show are just superb except one- and that would be Kashmir. Jonesy and Jimmy get lost and most people would call it a train wreck but I like the live spectrum where anything can happen. It reminds of the version they got lost in at the Los Angeles June 23, 1977 show. It is funny at the end Robert Plant even says "If anybody's bootlegging that you'll have to scratch that number 'cuz it wasn't completely correct. Never mind. We got thru it."

The highlights for me of this show, is a superb version of Train Kept A Rollin with Jonesy really popping the strings on that 8-string bass. An awesome version of Achilles Last Stand and another great version of Heartbreaker-similar to the version at Rotterdam on June 21.
