This amazing vintage rock t-shirt is for the iconic band Led Zeppelin and says "United States of America 1977". 1977 was the year that the band launched a North American tour, during which they set an attendance record with 76,229 people showing up to their show at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan. According to Guinness Book of World Records, it was the largest attendance to date for a single act show. The band's tour lasted several months, but it was cut short when Robert Plant received news that his five year old son had died of a stomach virus.
Fans were nervous about how this tragedy might affect the future of the band. The group soldiered on though, and recorded an album in 1978 at Polar Studios. The album was In Through the Out Door, which reached the top of both the US and UK charts within the first two weeks of its release. The group was set to tour to promote the album, but before it could begin, the band was struck by the death of drummer, John Bonham. The tour was canceled and the group disbanded. The group would not play again together live until they appeared at the Live Aid Concert at JFK Stadium in 1985.
