Comments: Set list taken from a date just over a week later with Rusted Root opening for Page and Plant, April 7, at the Brendan Byrne Arena, East Rutherford, New Jersey. Seeing as how opening acts rarely, if ever, change their set from night to night, it is a fairly safe bet this was the same set they played in Toronto.

Comments: One of my biggest disappointments from my concert going career has been the fact that I never got to see the mighty Led Zeppelin back in the day. The last time they had come to Toronto was on September 4, 1971 when they played Maple Leaf Gardens. I was 10 going on 11 at the time so wasn’t likely to have attended. They passed us by in 1973 and 1975. The band were to come back to Toronto on April 1, 1977 but Robert Plant’s bout of laryngitis before the tour even kicked off forced them to postpone the start of the tour for a month. When the revamped schedule kicked off, it was, indeed, on April 1, 1977 but at the Dallas Memorial Auditorium in Dallas, Texas instead. Talk about a cruel April Fool’s joke. A friend had already procured tickets which means I would have been there. But Toronto didn’t figure in to their rejigged tour schedule.

When word came out in early 1980 that the lads were embarking on a smattering of European dates before hunkering down to rehearse for a planned fall North American tour I was bound and determined to be there. Where ever the hell it was that there happened to be. On Thursday, September the 5th, 1980 I was on assignment for the Whitby Free Press, driving from one location to the next when the news came on the radio. John Henry Bonham, one of the greatest rock drummers of all time, was dead. The shock hit me like a tidal wave. I had to pull over. How the hell could this be? He was only 32, and strong as the proverbial Ox. I guess drinking 40 shots of vodka in a 24 hour period will do that to a body, won’t it.

On December 4, Led Zeppelin released the following:

“We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend and the deep respect we have for his family, together with the sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were.”

Led Zeppelin died right along with their beloved son. And so it remained for 14 odd years until rumours started to swirl that Jimmy Page and Robert Plant had something up their musical sleeves. That something was an MTV special series of concerts dubbed No Quarter, which would take classic Zeppelin tunes filtered more thoroughly through the duo’s love for eastern musical styling.

After the success of those specials P&P embarked on a full scale tour, enlisting a score of top notch musicians, both Eastern and Western, to support them. The added bit of local umph was provided by the inclusion of a select few members of the local Symphony Orchestra. This, then, was the atmosphere in which I first saw the driving forces behind a perennial favorite band.
