Led Zeppelin History – Sept 11

Today in 1980 Led Zeppelin band manager Peter Grant announced details of the “Led Zeppelin: The 1980s, Part One” touring campaign, to open at the Montreal Forum on Oct 17. This was to herald a return to North America after a 3-year absence from there, with 19 dates covering the East and Midwest, and plans to cover the South the following spring. It was considered “Part One” because there were tentative plans to reconvene in 1981 for tours of Japan and, for the first time ever by Led Zeppelin, South America. But the tour and all future plans were cancelled after the death of John Bonham on Sept 25…

Cancelled dates were:
OCTOBER 17 – MONTREAL FORUM
OCTOBER 19+20 – CAPITOL CENTRE, LANDOVER, MD
OCTOBER 22 – THE SPECTRUM, PHILADELPHIA, PA
OCTOBER 23 – CAPITOL CENTRE, LANDOVER, MD
OCTOBER 26+27 – RICHFIELD COLISEUM, CLEVELAND, OH
OCTOBER 29+30 – JOE LOUIS ARENA, DETROIT, MI
