Columbia, MD US
Songs performed during this tour include: Train Kept a Rollin', I Can't Quit You Baby, Dazed and Confused, White Summer / Black Mountainside, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, You Shook Me, How Many More Times, Whole Lotta Love.
A rare double-bill featuring Led Zeppelin and the Who - the only time this would occur. The encore featured another early appearance of Whole Lotta Love. Some 8mm backstage footage of both bands together exists, as well as a clip of Zep's performance.
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]
