Edmonton, AB CA

Kinsmen Field House

Setlist:

Setlists during this tour include: Train Kept a Rollin', I Can't Quit You Baby, Dazed and Confused, White Summer / Black Mountainside, You Shook Me, How Many More Times, Communication Breakdown

Notes:

Originally scheduled for July 25th. Vanilla Fudge is also on the bill, who close the show. Carmine Appice jokingly takes John Bonham's place for the end of How Many More Times.(interview here )

Press Review: "It would have been better if Vanilla Fudge had played first. Their music's more intellectual and more jazz-influenced than the gutsy Zeppelin's.

Tuesday's show at the Kinsmen Field House was probably the best of the year and the size of the turnout probably caught the promoters - Concerts West of Seattle and Dick Lodmell - by surprise. There weren't enough chairs to go around the crowd of 5,000 but otherwise, the concert was the smoothest and best-organized rock show here in a long time." (Edmonton Journal, 8/1/69)

both Edmonton Zeppelin show in 1969

Those were both awesome shows.
The show on May 9th at the Edmonton Gardens was definitely centered around the first album. They were backed by a band named Django, from Vancouver.
The July 29th show with Vanilla Fudge was attended by the same 2000 long haired hippy type freaks that went to all the concerts in the city back then. It seemed like this concert was the coming out for Led Zeppelin II. Stunning concert.
I still have a poster from the July concert. Tickets were $4:50 in advance. Four fifty, heck you can't by a water at a concert today for that much. Yeah, I know it was a million years ago...
