Led Zeppelin History – Sept 27

Today in 1971 Led Zeppelin played in Hiroshima during their first tour of Japan. This show was a charity concert to aid the victims of the 1945 atomic bomb, and the band subsequently presented the local mayor with a check for 7,000,000 Yen (about $64,000 today) from the show.
