Background to Led Zeppelin 1970 North America Tour: This concert tour was a massive success for Led Zeppelin, as they played to wildly enthusiastic audiences. It was their highest grossing tour to date (for the two New York City concerts alone, the band grossed $100,000). With The Rolling Stones off the road at the time, only The Who could now compete with Led Zeppelin for the title of the world’s top concert attraction. The band were widely hailed as bigger than The Beatles, dethroning them in the polls for the first time in rock history.
This concert tour was originally scheduled to commence on 5 August at Cincinnati. However, the first week was cancelled due to the ill health of the father of bass player John Paul Jones. The itinerary was amended several times, leading to much confusion, with the band erroneously being billed to appear at the Strawberry Fields Festival on the weekend of August 8–9. The tour eventually commenced on August 15 at New Haven. During this tour the band mixed their third album at Ardent Studios, Memphis, in August 1970. The album was released in October 1970, shortly following the conclusion of this tour.
Special notes: Flyers such as this are concidered rare survivors in the market place, as the vast majority were given out to passing members of the public (and typically disposed of), or pasted to street lamp posts are walls.
