Teen-Clubs, Box 45, Egegaard Skole

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's first gig at Gladsaxe Teen Club 7 September 2007

Hi

The original organisers of Gladsaxe Teen Club are currently preparing a "revival" - i.a. with the launch of a web site www.teenclubs.dk. The site is not yet completely finalised - but a presentation of Led Zeppelin's (The New Yardbirds) firs concert is already up and running see: http://www.teenclubs.dk/Led_Zeppelins_first_gig.html . We have a number of memorabilia - i.a. the contract between Gladsaxe Teen Club and Yardbirds and photos (both the well known by photographer Jørgen Angel as well as a few never before seen photos).

Best regards
Karen-Annette Madsen
