Led Zeppelin History – Feb 25

Today in 1972, during their only “down under” tour, Zeppelin played the Western Springs Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand. Over 25,000 fans attended, some from as far away as Dunedin, at the other end of the country (about 900 miles). It was the largest crowd ever to attend a concert on the island. A special train was chartered to bring fans to the show. News reviews the next day reported the band could be heard over five miles from the stadium.

Setlist: Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Black Dog, Since I’ve Been Loving You, Celebration Day, Stairway to Heaven, Going to California, That’s the Way, Tangerine, Bron-Y-Aur Stomp, Dazed and Confused, What Is And What Should Never Be, Moby Dick, Rock And Roll, Whole Lotta Love (medley incl. Let That Boy Boogie, Hello Mary Lou, Let’s Have a Party, Going Down Slow), Communication Breakdown.
