Steve Z(oso) Posted October 14, 2008 Share Posted October 14, 2008 Hey all, We're starting up a very special show that will hopefully tour a bit more around the country than what we've been able to do so far. As I actually got to see this tour myself, this is especially near & dear to me. Those in Southern CA, I hope you can make one of our initial 2 shows. On April 1, 1977, Led Zeppelin embarked on their biggest tour yet of the United States, setting attendance records and quickly becoming the hottest ticket of the year. Their show in Pontiac, Michigan, played to an astounding 76,229 people, beating their own record of 56,800 for the biggest ever attendance for a single act, that they set in 1973! A total of 44 dates were played, including massive 6-night runs at New York’s Madison Square Garden and the Forum in Los Angeles. The tour came to a tragic end in July after the death of Robert Plant’s 5 year old son, and the remainder of the shows were cancelled. It would be the last US performances the band would ever play. Now Led Zepagain brings Led Zeppelin’s 1977 United States of America Tour to the stage once again! The complete set list, equipment and costumes are re-created in spectacular detail, giving concert-goers of all ages the chance to re-live those amazing shows! All the greatest hits, from Stairway to Heaven, Kashmir and Rock & Roll, as well as fan favorites like Since I’ve Been Loving You, Ten Years Gone and Achilles Last Stand are performed exactly as Led Zeppelin did them 30 years ago! In addition to the music, Led Zepagain features stage effects of the 1977 shows such as lasers and fog, plus updated lighting, video screens and more to create a complete multi-media experience. First 2 dates: Oct 17 - House of Blues - San Diego, CA Nov 22 - Oceanview Pavilion - Port Hueneme, CA There will be more of these to come!
