Description


Hugely displayable and very rare original 30 x 39.5 color poster for a Led Zeppelin concert at Wembley's Empire Pool on November 20, 1971. With graphics by Paper Tiger and brilliant design work by artist Steve Hardstaff, the poster features images of each band member surrounded by stars, lightning, and mystical effects, with bold stylized text reading: "Buffalo Concert Presentations, In Association with Peter Grant, Presents Electric Magic, Featuring Led Zeppelin, Plus Supporting Acts." Rolled and in very good to fine condition, with creasing to the edges, and a tear to the top repaired with very old tape on the back. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original owner: "I can confirm that I have been the sole owner of the Electric Magic Zeppelin poster which I purchased when I attended their concert at Wembley on 20th November 1971. The poster has remained in my possession, originally displayed on my bedroom wall and then stored in a cardboard tube since 1974." Led Zeppelin's five-hour 'Electric Magic' show at London's Wembley Arena featured an array of bizarre vaudeville circus acts and included support from blues-rockers Stone the Crowes. When nearly 10,000 tickets sold out for the event within an hour, a second show was added for the following day.
