On This Day
February 25, 1972
Led Zeppelin played Western Springs Stadium, Auckland, New Zealand, in front of 25,000 people (the band’s first show in NZ, and the largest crowd ever on the island). News outlets the next day reported the music could be heard from over 5 miles away!!
Also…. in 1984
“Jump”, arguably one of Van Halen‘s biggest hits, began a 5-week run at #1 on the Billboard US Singles chart, cementing their place in rock and roll history.
