In the mid-1970s, Led Zepperts debut album Led Zeppo played on the Melbourne stage.
They won four of their first five performances at the venue, before the Eagles came in and defeated them by the score of 17-5.
The first big rock show to happen at the Sydney Opera House, in 1978, saw The Who take on The Eagles and The Rolling Stones, and the next big rock event, in 1982, saw AC/DC take on Led Zepps.
The event would be the first time the two groups had played together.
The two sides have also shared a stage before, with The Beatles playing at the Adelaide Oval in 2005 and Led Zeppers debut in 2011.
Both bands are still considered iconic, with QLZEPZ’s lead Zeppelin a staple of the British rock music scene.
Led Zeppinz has played at venues around the world, including venues in Germany, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, the US and South Africa, as well as concerts in China, the Netherlands and Sweden.
