104 - In My Time Of Dying
105 - The Song Remains The Same
106 - The Rain Song
107 - Kashmir

201 - No Quarter
202 - Trampled Underfoot
203 - Moby Dick

301 - Dazed & Confused (includes Woodstock)
302 - Stairway To Heaven
303 - Whole Lotta Love/The Crunge
304 - Black Dog

This is something like a prelude to the following evening's show. The playing is on top form and overall all the songs were performed with furiosity. Pagey is in decent form tonight, with especially fine playing on Sick Again, In My Time Of Dying and The Song Remains The Same; Plant is not in fine form, though, with his best vocals coming from the songs that demanded the least from him, such as No Quarter and Whole Lotta Love; Bonham does bring the bang, with awesome drumming on Over The Hills And Far Away, Kashmir and Trampled Underfoot. Ironically, it is Jones that makes this show awesome, with amazing bass playing and great keyboards from start to finish. Kashmir was dedicated to "...Richard Cole, our tour manager - a good upright British citizen" and Dazed And Confused to "...our manager, Peter Grant, who's made so many things possible. He's the man who gives us the blow job in the dressing room". Obviously the whole band had a great time during these two Vancouver shows.

A very heavy and overall, good performance. Plant apologise for the last concert they played in Vanvouver two years ago, and he said: "Last night it was quite a peculiar show actually. Something strange happened to me that evening. I found the light show to be amazing and I wondered what the name of the group was!" No Quarter is absolutely beautiful and Dazed And Confused rocks really hard and is led by Jimmy's amazing guitar prowess. Stairway To Heaven really lifts off during the guitar solo and the heavily improvised and dynamic encores close out this really heavy, powerful and exciting show, which in itself would prove to be nothing compared to the next night! Listen to the Whole Lotta Love encore for Lickin' Stick followed by the riffs from Ozone Baby, three years before it's recording! s on the previous night, the band members are in glorious humours and that caused of few very funny introductions
The two concerts in Vancouver are almost cancelled, due to a strike by radio station CKLG-FM.

3-18-75: "CUPE local 1004 (Canadian Union of Public Employees) at the PNE and two other unions involved would have boycotted the concert if CUPE local 686, representing the CKLG strikers, had so wished. But CUPE spokesman Ole Johnson said the concert is “definitely on.”

“We felt it was in the best public interest to allow the concert to be held," he said, “We aren’t intertested in hurting the over 20,000 people who have already bought tickets."
