Led Zeppelin Tour Poster Sells For $2,200 on eBay

Led Zeppelin
eBay

A rare poster for Led Zeppelin‘s 1971 tour of Japan has sold for $2,200 on eBay. The poster advertises the tour’s first two dates, at Tokyo’s Budokan Hall on Sept. 23 and 24. Led Zeppelin played three other shows in Japan: Hiroshima on Sept. 27 and Osaka on Sept. 28 and 29. Ticket prices for the shows ranged from 1,500 to 2,700 Yen, which corresponds to $18.80 to $33.85 in 2012 dollars.

According to Led Zeppelin’s website, the setlists for both shows were virtually identical. They opened with ‘Immigrant Song’ and tore through 10 other Zep chestnuts, including ‘Black Dog,’ ‘Dazed and Confused,’ ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and ‘What Is and What Should Never Be.’ They closed the set with ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ which featured a medley of some of their favorite blues and early rock songs.

The only variations between the two shows were the songs used in the medley, and for the encore of the second night, they played ‘Thank You’ in addition to ‘Communication Breakdown.’

The poster features a downward-facing zeppelin (as opposed to the rising one of their first two album covers). Individual shots of the four band members in clouds surround the airship. The seller claims that the poster is in excellent condition, with only a few small pinholes and slight roll marks.
