What turned out to be the last show ever by the original Led Zeppelin took place 34 years ago today (July 7th, 1980) in Berlin, the final date of a European tour. The quartet had a U.S. tour scheduled in the fall, but that was cancelled after drummer John Bonham drank himself to death in late September.

Led Zeppelin performing "Train Kept A-Rollin'" on July 7th, 1980, which turned out to be John Bonham's last show.

The set list from that historic show included "Train Kept A-Rollin'," "Black Dog," "Hot Dog," "Trampled Underfoot," "Kashmir," "Stairway to Heaven," "Rock and Roll" and "Whole Lotta Love."
