Review excerpt:

Zeppelin created more frenzy at the Forum than any group I’ve seen since the Stones’ appearance last year. At the end of the evening, hundreds had pushed their way into the aisles near the stage and thousands of others were standing in rhythm to the music.

The concert, which had been sold out for weeks, showed that Led Zeppelin is largely trying to recreate the sounds that have dominated English blues-rock in recent years.

Appearing without any support act, the group was onstage from 8:45 to 11:15pm. Like the Stones, they have a gyrating lead singer in Robert Plant and their best received songs have bawdy, under-the-counter lyrics. (LA Times, March 1970)

I WAS THERE

WOW! I remember this concert. i went with a few friends. did not have a ticket. but i managed to sell some joints and came up with enough cash to buy a ticket from a local scalper. one of the best concerts i have seen. i remember jimmy page playing the guitar with a violin bow. before the concert they had stage announcements. about upcoming events. i remember hearing that jimi hendirx was going to be at the forum in April. when i heard this. i said to myself. i need to roll more joints because i am going to need the money to see jimi. but i never went. and jimi died in september of that year. Bummer.
