Description

Scarce original color 35.5. x 25.25 poster for Led Zeppelin’s five-show showcase at Earls Court Arena in London in May 1975. The poster shows the band logo in bold red-and-yellow lettering above four men riding a small rail service reading "Physical Rocket.” The left and right sides contain concert dates and locations, and the lower border features ticket information. Rolled and in fine condition, with some light creasing to two corners.

In celebration of the release of their sixth album, Physical Graffiti, Led Zeppelin arranged a five-night residency at Earls Court from May 17-25, 1975, with the first two shows added due to unprecedented public demand. These were the only Led Zeppelin concerts in the country in this year, and so the events sold out their entire run of 85,000 tickets. To help promote the concerts, promoter Mel Bush and manager Peter Grant used advertisements which displayed a train, dubbed the 'Zeppelin Express,' linked to Earls Court via the Inter City train services of British Rail.
