On 18 March 1972, T.Rex performed two sell-out concerts at the Empire Pool, Wembley. It is now known as the Wembley Arena (next to the Wembley Stadium) but was originally a swimming pool built for the 1934 Empire Games.
Both concerts featured 10 songs, filmed by an Apple Films crew, led by Marc’s mate Ringo Starr. Meanwhile producer Tony Visconti was recording the sound in the Rolling Stones’ mobile recording facility parked outside.
The concerts shot that day are the only surviving professionally filmed complete T.Rex concerts, representing a unique moment in the history of rock music and revealing the extraordinary power and success of Marc Bolan and T.Rex.
Get It On … brilliant version!
