Calendar* Correction: Rolling Stones

We have found another serious error in the music "calendars" of many Internet websites. 

This one pertains to the alleged "Australian debut" of the Rolling Stones on February 16, 1972.  Many websites report that the Rolling Stones debuted in Australia with the first of six concerts at the Subiaco Oval in Perth. 

Right site, wrong band.
The band that played the first of six Australian dates was called Led Zeppelin, according to the book Led Zeppelin: The Story of a Band and Their Music, 1968-80 by Keith Shadwick and the ticket stub shown above.  The Rolling Stones did not begin their 1972 tour until June 3 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, according to their official website.
