Led Zeppelin – Sydney Showgrounds 1972

70s rock photographer Kevin Hill took thousands of photos of bands playing in New Zealand and Australia.

This photo is one of many he took of the February 1972 Led Zeppelin concert at the Show Grounds in Sydney, Australia.

The band opened the show with “Immigrant Song” (from Led Zep III) – straight after the first song the fans stormed the barriers and rushed to the front of the stage… security couldn’t stop them and they stayed there for the rest of the night.  The performance of Immigrant Song at Sydney is featured on the Led Zeppelin ‘Official Remastered” DVD set issued by Jimmy Page.

See if you can spot Kevin Borich at the front (with the press photographers) … before the crowds crashed the barriers – hint look at the B&W photo!

There are over 1,000 photos in Kevin Hill’s collection of local and international rock musicians.
