Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Evenings with Led Zeppelin chronicles the 500-plus appearances Led Zeppelin made throughout their career. From their earliest gig in a Denmark school gymnasium on September 7, 1968, through to the last gig that Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones ever performed with John Bonham, in Berlin on July 7, 1980, this is the Led Zeppelin story told from where their legend was forged - on stage.
Impeccably researched by Dave Lewis and Mike Tremaglio, Evenings with Led Zeppelin traces the group's rapid ascent from playing to a few hundred at London's Marquee Club to selling out the 20,000 capacity Madison Square Garden in New York - all in a mere 18 months.
