In the next-to-last photo you can see Peter Grant standing in the wings with his son. So I'm assuming "the incident" had yet to play out. I wonder if anyone has ever interviewed Warren Grant about it? Any recent pics of him? Is there anything in "The Man Who Led Zeppelin" about it?

Nice pics, btw

This was Led Zeppelin’s only Australian tour. Portions of the Sydney Showground concert were filmed for GTK and appears in the “Down Under” segment of the Led Zeppelin DVD released in 2003.

The Led Zeppelin concert at the showgrounds last Sunday must rate as one of the best ever held in Sydney – but, if the crowd had not stormed the fences, it could have been the worst.

The official attendence figure was 27,000 but senior police officers at the concert estimated the crowd at “at least 30,000″. According to showground officials the three stands used last Sunday have a maximum capacity of 25,000 – so whatever way you look at it the ground was dangerously overcrowded.

Despite the fact that there were no seats left at mid-day and no standing room by 1.30pm., people were still coming through the gates at 2.30pm. The overcrowding that existed before the fences were stormed must never be allowed to occur again because next time someone could be killed in the crush. Once capacity is reached the gates should be closed.

From Halfin's Diary: 14 April 2012

"...Found all of these in a box in the garage. I threw loads out, these are the ones I kept because I either liked the artwork or they featured the Who and Led Zeppelin. More to come..."

Thank you Facebook for this!


They look soooo cute!

The facial features of Page, Plant and Jones didn't change much after they grew into men. Bonham, on the other hand...I wouldn't have guessed that was him. He looked like a cherub when he was a lad.
