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)

Edmonton Concert - July 29, 1969

This was the very first concert I ever attended. Led Zeppelin played first, followed by the Vanilla Fudge. I was a big fan of Led Zeppelin I ( I think the second album hadn't come out), and was thrilled there were in town and I could actually go see them.

Although very young at the time (barely 13), I still remember Jimmy Page sitting down and playing Black Mountain Side, and Led Zep closing with "How Many More Times." There was some switching of personnel between the two bands with (IIRC) Tim Bogert playing with Led Zep for at least a few numbers.

The Kinsman Field House was a terrible venue with horrible acoustics but this was still a very memorable night.
