Las Vegas Weekly - "top 25" concerts held in Vegas

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)

Led Zepplan in Las Vegas

OMG...do I recall that night....It was my second ever concert the first was the Doors...Oh my!
I still have the pink psychedelic dress I made to go see Led Zepplan...
The music was absolutly electrifyingly HOT!!!
At the Ice rink where many concerts were held they put down large wooden planks over the ice...I don't recall it being too cold...

I always said since I was 15yrs that I'd never be an old foggie in my kid's eyes someday. For I just knew deep down I'd always love Led Zepplan and now at the end of 2010 they're still my faves...
lol... I did end up a bit antiquated though for some of my kids liked Rap...

And Doug Bounsel...i yi yiiii....I don't recall him looking all that straight I just recall his cool blonde curly locks.... I was sooo shy but he was my secret heart throb since we began at Garside Jr High in Las Vegas...I had a long crush on him all the way through high school....if anyone knows where he is ...tell him Roxanne would love to say hello...His ex and baby lived in Calif w/ me for a while in 1978...

Where is everyone these days? I keep missing the reunions at Western and Clark High...I ended up in Seattle....

Back in '67-71...I lived in Charleston Heights next door to Robert Judd one of the first long haired hippies back in the day and he was always abreast of all the great concerts in Calfornia as well...

YES! The gatherings at Red Rock~Calico Basin were a blast...
oh ya and Suzi Cream Cheese Boutique on the Las Vegas Strip...
I loved the styles of clothes and accessories....
