|This was Led Zeppelin's only Australian tour, although Jimmy Page had visited Australia in
1967 with The Yardbirds as part of a "Big Show" package with Roy Orbison and The Walker Brothers.
Portions of the Sydney Showground concert were filmed for GTK and at least some of this footage has survived. At least one Australian concert, the Kooyoong Tennis Centre show, was recorded and bootlegged:
|"Still the best concert I've been to. The band
started with "Immigrant Song" and the showground exploded.
Every able-bodied person jumped the barrier fence and stormed
the front of stage. Things didn't settle till the acoustic set
came on, which of course ended with "Stairway" which
got the crowds adrenalin pumping again. From memory Radio 2SM
played some of the concert later that afternoon. I have some
slides and a poor quality 8mm movie (about 2 mins) which I dare
not expose to air.
It was also my first exposure to the fine aroma of 'weed'. (no wonder they called it shit ! )"
