Veterans Memorial Coliseum

Setlist:

We're Gonna Groove, Dazed and Confused, Heartbreaker, Bring It On Home, White Summer / Black Mountainside, Organ solo / Thank You, Moby Dick, Whole Lotta Love.

Notes:

The show is cut short due to Robert Plant feeling ill, which also ends the tour as the following night in Las Vegas is cancelled.

Jimmy Page addresses the audience after Whole Lotta Love: "You've been a fantastic audience, but there's been something happening tonight... Robert's been very ill and as he came off he's just collapsed and we've just called for a doctor. We'd really like to do more, but obviously it's impossible."

Led Zeppelin 4-18-70

My first concert, a life altering experience,I had good seats, 16 rows back from the stage. Amazing show, the sound was massive, more prescense than any other concert I've seen but one, you felt every note! Roberts voice only strong for the first 2 songs but he put so much energy into his performance, he really sang the blues, gave it all he had. Page, Jones, and Bonham, were excellent, very tight! Bonham could only be described as thunderous, 20 minute Moby Dick!

The only drawback was they couldn't do the usual encores, so the show lasted a little over an hour and a half! I was hoping someone might have a picture of this show, they had more gear on stage than any other show I've seen them pictured during this time period, stacks of WEM cabinets, huge PA.

I've heard some of the other shows from this tour, I think there was more feeling and energy in this show than most of them, even with Robert's voice going out, can only imagine if he would have been in top shape, great performance!
