Flying off to see Led Zeppelin

Flying off to see this iconic band at these prices!

On this day (6th Feb) back in 1971 - Led Zeppelin announced a small UK club tour.

The four piece would rock out universities and tiny venues with ticket prices only 12 shillings!

Manager Peter Grant said:

"We decided to do the clubs and forget about the bread and the big concert halls."

Just to put that in comparison - recent shows set fans back about $250.
