In May 1975, LED ZEPPELIN performed five momentous concerts at the Earls Court Arena in London to a combined audience of 85,000 fans. It found the band at the peak of their powers, slaying the sold-out audiences with a nightly marathon three-and-a-half-hour presentation of light, sound, power and energy.
Due in May, "Five Glorious Nights - Led Zeppelin At Earls Court May 1975" captures the visual magnificence of the band though the photographic images of some of the finest rock photographers of the era who were right there on the spot to capture rock history.
Drawing from the archives of variety of photographers — including Barry Plummer, Dick Barnatt, Ian Dickson, Michael Putland, Mick Gold, Gus Stewart and more — the book chronicles the sheer visual splendour of these historic concerts though an extensive collection of colour and black and white photos, many of them rarely seen. The photos are complemented by rare memorabilia and a written commentary that puts into perspective exactly why these concerts were some of the finest LED ZEPPELIN ever performed.
The book is compiled by Dave Lewis, the highly respected LED ZEPPELIN archivist and author and editor of the long-running LED ZEPPELIN magazine Tight But Loose. Dave was in attendance at all five of the Earls Court concerts.
Published on the 40th anniversary of the event and as sadly, the bulldozers move in to demolish the Earls Court Exhibition Centre itself, "Five Glorious Nights - Led Zeppelin At Earls Court May 1975" offers a permanent visual record of a band at their absolute zenith in a setting that truly justified their status as the world's greatest live rock attraction.
The book will be available in a strict limited edition quantity, individually numbered and will ship on the anniversary date of the Earls Court shows.
