Setlist:

Exact setlists during the first tours are still sketchy. Old Yardbirds' live staples such as Train Kept a Rollin', Dazed and Confused, White Summer and likely For Your Love were performed.

Material from the yet unfinished debut album was also included, such as: Communication Breakdown, I Can't Quit You Baby, You Shook Me, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, How Many More Times and a Garnett Mimms cover, As Long As I Have You.

Notes:

First ever concert by the group, who are billed as The Yardbirds during this short tour of Scandinavia.

Jimmy Page: "They don't cheer too madly there, you know? We were really scared, because we only had about fifteen hours to practice together. It was sort of an experimental concert to see if we were any good. I guess." (Dec. 1968 interview)

Led Zeppelin 40th Anniversary Tribute in Gladsaxe on 9 07 2008

On September 7 2008 the Friends of Gladsaxe Teen Club organised a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Led Zeppelin’s first-ever public performance at the Gladsaxe Teen Club in Copenhagen, Denmark. At the venue (the Egegaard School) a very popular Danish tribute band, Led Zeppelin Jam, performed and the event was a great success.

If you want to get a closer look at the venue where Led Zeppelin played together for the first time you could get a good impression from the live footage and photo collection on this page: http://www.teenclubs.dk/HRE_Video.html .

As you will learn there is a long way from Egegaard School in Gladsaxe to O2 Arena :-)
