Press Review:  At the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on Sunday night, comedian Uncle Dirty, Led Zeppelin and The Who performed to a packed hall, field and parking lot.

Led Zeppelin played a fairly orthodox show, mostly using material off their first album. And although guitarist Jimmy Page once again proved himself a fine musician, there wasn’t much more to be said about the act as a whole. He and singer Robert Plant launched into innumerable transgressions of tonal question-answer games, more conducive to boredom than musically induced languor.[R. Cowan]

zeppelin/who at merriweather 1969

I was at that historic show as well.
A slight correction if I may. The Who actually opened the show! The reason I remember this is that during the intermission we were able to sneak from our lawn seats into the second row. I had never heard of Zeppelin before then and was blown away!

One comical event from the show came when The Who "smashed" their equipment (cheap replacements) at the end of their set. A fan grabbed a $50 microphone from the edge of the stage and the roadies pounced on him like it was a bag of gold! LOL
