It was actually four nights, and it was in April of 1977. They also had a three night stay in January of 1975. Both of these Chicago stints weren't up to par because it was the beginning of both tours. By the end of April, they were playing better than they ever did in 1975, and for Led Zeppelin fans [or bootleg collectors], 1977 was probably thier worst touring year.
