North American Tour 1968/1969

Led Zeppelin play their first North American show, in Denver, the day after Christmas 1968. Robert Plant, John Bonham and Jimmy Page travel to Los Angeles on December 23rd, while John Paul Jones meets up with them at the Denver show. Peter Grant would join them in San Francisco a couple of weeks later at the Fillmore West.

Playing to unfamiliar crowds, their debut album is released several weeks after arriving in America. By the time they reach California though, the buzz and notoriety about their dynamic and blistering concerts began to spread.
