On September 7, 1968, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant first took the stage together in Gladsaxe, Denmark.
Then billed as “The New Yardbirds,” the band would assemble in the studio for the first time later that month to start recording their debut album as Led Zeppelin.
Before the band’s 50th Anniversary celebration officially begins in September, Led Zeppelin will continue their reissue campaign with a new edition of their celebrated live album 'How The West was Won' originally released in 2003, featuring newly remastered audio, under the supervision of Jimmy Page.
'How The West Was Won' will be released on March 23, 2018 in multiple formats, including the first ever vinyl and Blu-ray Audio editions.
'How The West Was Won' highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of ‘Dazed And Confused’ and a 21-minute medley based around ‘Whole Lotta Love.’ The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album Houses of the Holy, which would be released nine months later.
