The Day Zeppelin Played Their last Show with Bonham

On July 7, 1980, Led Zeppelin performed together for the final time in Berlin, Germany. The concert was the last scheduled stop on a 14-date European tour in support of the group's most recent (and ultimately final) studio album, 1979's In Through the Out Door.

Trouble had been circling the band in previous years, with John Bonham and Jimmy Page both struggling with alcohol and drug addictions.

Two weeks before the Berlin show, on June 27 in Nuremburg, Germany, Led Zeppelin were forced to stop their show after just three songs when Bonham was rushed to the hospital after suffering what was reported as food poisoning but rumored to instead be the result of a blackout.
