3. Led Zeppelin, Las Vegas Ice Palace, 1969
Though the Internet purports Zeppelin's only Vegas-related date to have been an April 19, 1970, Convention Center cancellation  we've spoken to a dozen individuals who vividly recall getting the Led out at this once-hopping all-ages venue in the Commercial Center off Sahara Ave. It went down atop the wood-covered ice of a hockey arena—most likely, we deduce, on either August 11 or 12, between shows in San Diego and Phoenix—with fans of the band's blues-driven early music fanning across the plywood floor and up the bleachers along the sides. "They were good, except when Jimmy Page pulled out that violin bow and drove me nuts with it for the next 25 minutes," recalls Las Vegas resident Tom Burt. "It was before they were really big—they only had their first album out—but if you knew what was goin' on, you knew who they were."

From Michael Chain in the group PINKINY CANANDY: "We were second on the bill. A local band opened the show (at the Ice Palace in Las Vegas), then Pinkiny Canandy (Michael Chain) and then Zeppelin. (w/ thanks to Steve A. Jones)

ice palace,merry cherry,sioux uprising,calico basin etc.

Ilove this site !!! I just happened to be reminiscing with one of my best friends last night,3/22/2010 we're talking about merry cherry candy co. ,led zeppelin, calico basin saturday night parties, where the band would set up on the side of the mountain, a bonfire on each side, freaks from all over vegas and some out of towners too, partying like there was no tomorrow! we were trying to figure out what year the "awarehouse" was open? was'nt that" Heart" that played there? I do remember THE SIOUX UPRISING. At nsu they had a coffee house and Doug Bounsel not sure about the spelling[sorry Doug] any way, Doug could play anything with strings on it, like a madman, he was awesome and he played the coffee-shop with a couple of dudes from Kentucky. They were real straight looking ,one was an older guy on guitar,the other a kid maybe 14 or 15 yrs. old playing banjo[help me here] and Doug on mandolin, they were all excellent players and it was fast moving bluegrass music. Doug never was boring ,you did'nt know what kind of music he would play next! The Birds also played nsu they were so messed up[tripping i think] but hey who was'nt? Susie Creamcheese's Boutique on lv blvd. she was hot was'nt she ! Well my brain is overloaded,keep the memories alive, they were special times. If you can help paint a clearer picture its always appreciated! Hope to here lots more!
