Yes actually, if you don't count the organ solo excerpt on the official DVD.

I don't haha, it is just really a rehearsal and we don't have a lot of it, well i guess maybe it would count. First time of them actually performing the song itself in front of an audience I should say.

It's not the soundcheck, the band was all wearing T-shirts before the show.

Man, I'm hoping this entire concert becomes officialy released one day. With the two songs off of the 2003 DVD, I would like to think the whole concert was filmed.

Including the new recently surfaced footage (this list is by ssellers from royal orleans, giving credit where credit is due), this is all that exists today of Australia footage. Seems like we've got a decent amount. Roughly 30 minutes it seems.

Yes Spartan, and hello. First post we have exchanged, I believe, although I've read quite a number of yours.....

Thank You for the information provided.

With the new releases and additonal footage coming next year, I sure hope they have a good bulk of 72' material included. I think that was dynamite year for live performance.

Anything else from the Australia shows would be a treat.

I've read a number of yours too! No problem, glad to share the info! Also, I knew we were getting alternate takes from songs but I had no idea about new footage. I really hope that the TV crew got more of this show. Australia was a great tour for Led Zeppelin. I'd love to see some New Zealand fotage myself.

It's not the soundcheck, the band was all wearing T-shirts before the show.

I was there from early in the day and they didn't open the gates until about noon, the band didn't show up until they arrived in the limos and went straight on stage as was their wont.

With the exception of Bonzo they weren't wearing tshirts.

They may done an earlier soundcheck but I would think it was the day before.

This footage is from the ABC show GTK and was 10 minutes in length including the interview with Bonzo, JPJ and Germaine Greer etc.

As I understand it, they were allowed only a small portion of the gig to be filmed, at Grant's insistance.

Unfortunately the whole show was (probably) not filmed because unless it is hidden in the vaults of the ABC or hoarded by someone, it would've surfaced by now.

We all know how protective Grant was of the band and if more of the show was filmed and he found about it I doubt that any would've been shown on TV at all, no doubt he'd have confiscated it all.

A friend of mine who passed away some years ago filmed some of it but I don't know if any of the fan video is his or not.

Maybe some footage of Auckland NZ exists out there somewhere.

A comment by the uploader on the video:

Two 16mm reels in 100 foot rolls, each runs 2.44. First is Ektachrome 7255, the other is Ektachrome MS (with color difference obvious). Has not yet been professionally transferred/copied. Good quality obtainable of course, at a modest monetary and time/handling expense.
