Opening montage features a news broadcast on the evening of 5th May 1973, on Pulse, "Big 13" WTVT, Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida, anchored by Scott Shuster with reporter John Jones at Tampa Stadium. Led Zeppelin had just broken the Beatles 1965 record for a single concert attendance, with an audience of 56,800. Led Zeppelin would later exceed that record with 76,229 attending at the indoor Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan, on 30th April 1977. See more »
The previous reviewers have summed up this film perfectly - this was an amazing experience to see Led Zeppelin performing circa 2007 at the O2 Arena in London. The band themselves do not stray from a very tight pattern on stage, but that keeps you close to the music and the performances - yes they have aged, but they still keep it together perfectly. Director Dick Carruthers lets the music do the talking, and while the editing is tight, the camera concentrates on the band, rarely focusing on the audience. Absolutely fantastic. If you've missed them on the big screen, then seek this out on Bluray and DVD in November - you will not be disappointed if you love Zep. The best concert film in a long time.
