January 12, 2010, 12 years ago
In recognition of the 30th anniversary of LED ZEPPELIN's four slated shows at Chicago Stadium (November 10th, 12th, 13th and 15th, 1980), Metro Pulse, Inc. has published a new on-line video. These four shows never happened as the world came to find out about the passing of legendary Zeppelin drummer John Bonham on the same day the four shows went on sale - September 25, 1980. This historical video chronicles the events leading up to this last concert, the sale of the tickets, the demolition of the Chicago Stadium and the collectible concert tickets.

According to Michael Dehn, founder of Metro Pulse, "These concert tickets are a vital piece of Led Zeppelin history and we wanted to document that history. Now, Led Zeppelin fans can own and display a true piece of rock and roll history for their family and friends."

Led Zeppelin tickets can be acquired exclusively through Metro Pulse, Inc. and are available in various collector tickets editions. These rare Led Zeppelin tickets are each issued with a certificate of authenticity, are numbered limited editions, and are guaranteed.
